Cabinas Los Tucanes was a great place to stay in the charming village of El Castillo, close to Arenal Volcano. We had a spacious upstairs room with a spectacular view of the lake and volcano. The high-ceiling room was bright and spotlessly clean, spacious and had a nice deck. It came equipped with a coffee maker and small refrigerator, and the beds were very comfortable. The owner Fanny served us a delicious breakfast and went out of her way to be helpful in many ways.

Nice room with a funny "kitchen" made like a bathroom. It was clean and the bathroom was OK but without basin (you have to go to the kitchen for cleaning hands or teeth). As there is no breakfast included, we prepared it ourselves with the coffee maker and some stuff purchased at the local supermarket. The way to the lake is not very long and can be easily done walking. There is also an "Ecozoo" almost in front of the room. Good place for a short stay.

Loved our room here – the first time we’ve had a fridge on our travels in Nicaragua & Costa Rica! – and the coffee machine and cups, plates, etc were a really nice touch. The room was spotlessly clean and the location is great for visiting Volcán Arenal, the Laguna, local hot springs and the Arenal Observatory Lodge trails.

I stayed at this place with my family. We had a big and nice room for a reasonable price. The owner was really nice, she even helped me sending me the stuff I forgot in the room. The area around is great. Just in front of the house there is the amazing view of the volcano. The only thing I did not like is that you can not sit outside because just in front of your door there are parked cars. This is because there are not other car parks around there. Thanks for all!

Los Tucanes is small, family run, very conveniently located and was run very professionally. Fanny met all our needs, linked us in with local transport, cleaned our room thoroughly every day and did our laundry for a small fee.....freeing us up to explore and enjoy this amazing locality. We were very happy to have found Los Tucanes.
