This property has been appraised at over $1.7 million but the medical need to retire and stay closer to family after over 20 wonderful years means I will offer it for a quick sale of $650,000.

This lovely area has 80% of all the tourists who visit Costa Rica and Arenal Volcano, which this property looks on to, has become a symbol for the country. Beaches compete with each other but Arenal Volcano, the many hot springs, and the nearby lake, make this part of the country unique.

There are birds and flowers of every description, terrific neighbors, incredible views, wonderful weather with a healthy climate, visits by sloth, deer, monkeys, a business that can grow, if desired, or simply a beautiful place to live.

Please look at my website and the guest reviews, the people’s reaction to the property, and you’ll see just what a wonderful opportunity this is.

There is 7,000 square meters of land included (over 1 3/4 acres) as well as another smaller home and an apartment above the carport, designed as Maid’s Quarters but usually rented out to tourists.

The rear of the property is bordered by a small and very clean spring-fed creek/river. Across the river there is jungle, which makes for a great deal of all around privacy and which will never be developed.

Restaurants, a supermarket, services, and many natural attractions are just a short distance away. The property is safe and secure.

It can also include a franchise for Best Western Hotel, if interested in growing with the tourism business, and a small hobby farm bordering Arenal National Park with spectacular views of Lake Arenal, can also be purchased at a fire sale price.

All is available at an excellent price for the right person (people) and a package price can certainly be arranged. Many positive responses to the property may be seen here.

The area has many famous natural springs heated underground by the Volcano, and is also famous for its birds and other wild life,and its easy access to rain forests, Lake Arenal is the largest lake in Costa Rica and just a few minutes away by car.

It is also known for world famous rafting and wind surfing. Of course there are canopy tours, horse rentals to the famous La Fortuna waterfall (and other areas as well). It’s very easy to fill in an entire week enjoying all the natural activities in the area without doing the same thing twice.


The first thing people usually say after arriving at the Posada Colonial is that ‘The pictures don’t do it justice’. We are confident from our reviews that you, your family and your friends will feel the same way.

We are central, yet secluded, with patios, balconies and grounds looking on to the world famous Arenal Volcano.

This Almendro home has a wrap-around balcony, is gated and very private. We have WI-fi, cable and Sky TV, indoor and outdoor dining with flowers, birds and butterflies everywhere. It is a natural paradise.

We are near the charming town of La Fortuna, and our area is famous for its diversity of interests. These include bird watching, river rafting, jungle cruises, jungle canopy tours, butterfly farms, horseback riding, world famous spas and hot springs or relaxing and enjoying the best views of the spectacular Arenal Volcano.


Because we are well located on the main road, all is within easy access. We encourage everyone who is planning on visiting to read the reviews of our home to help determine your decision for your visit to this lovely part of the world.

We have been a Bed and Breakfast for about 15 years, with excellent reviews in the guide books, Our housekeeper/cook Miriam is local, friendly, helpful and has developed a great reputation for her breakfasts, which you can read about in the reviews. She is the soul of the place.

Security: Although the property is on the main road, with easy access to all the local attractions, it is gated, fenced, on a partial rise, and thus very safe and private. The newly formed ‘tourist police’ make regular checks with all the property owners.

Due to health concerns I’m going to be selling the Posada. Anyone interested in living a wonderful life style, meeting great people from all over the world, and actually getting paid to do it, should give me a call. Very reasonably priced, well below appraised value.

    I’ve been running a small business in California and am tired of the lifestyle here. I have a wife and 3 Daughters. &years old being the oldest. I cant get This Beautiful country out of my head. Something has been telling me to search for a business. Im not sure my family dynamic would fit the picture. That is why I am reaching out. I had a few questions before making the biggest decision of our lives. Thank you for your time.
