The Arenal Oasis Wildlife Refuge is a lodge cum ecological farm, which has many attractions for wildlife lovers. Situated just ten minutes from the La Fortuna town centre, Arenal Oasis is famous for its rustic and old fashioned charm, which makes its atmosphere truly unique. If you’re looking for a homely, warm experience in the place you stay, then Arenal Oasis Wildlife Refuge is definitely the place for you.
The Arenal Oasis Wildlife Refuge is essentially a no nonsense, unassuming take on hospitality, where they believe that all natural things must be authentic. They have even done away with the fancy frills of much bigger places to stay, which gives them their uniqueness. They do have tie ups with other adventure sports very close to the area, like the hanging bridges tour, the hiking package and the trip to Arenal Lake, to name just a few.
- The Night Walk at the Arenal Oasis is by far one of the best available in La Fortuna, as they are conducted by excellent tour guides who follow a lovely path down the woods where you can see a lot of rare animals.
- The frog watching tour is available inside the resort itself, which is held at night when brightly coloured tree frogs and other rainforest creatures are most active and most easily observed. You may be able to view at least 28 different species of frogs in the ponds.
- The bird watching tour is even more impressive, with a staggering 200 species on display. These include migratory birds according to season, and range from big birds to small, including Toucans, Honeycreepers, Robins, Parrots, FlyCatchers, Antstrikes, Manakins and a lot more.
Although there are very few eateries nearby, the restaurant at Arenal Oasis is very good itself, and cooks up a number of delicious dishes at your request. All in all, it is a lovely place to visit for a few hours, but should you decide to stay back for the night, you wouldn’t be disappointed.
