We are located amid green mountains in the serene vicinity of Lake Arenal, Guanacaste. Costa Rica is now receiving international travelers, and Living Forest is a perfectly secluded Lodge and Retreat space, nested in the rainforest, away from crowds. Enjoy all our open air spaces. We take all measures to follow health protocols for yours and our safety.

In addition to vacation rentals, we host various retreats, including yoga, transformational healing, movement, creativity, meditation and other spiritual events, all nestled against beautiful forest backdrop.

Join us and wake up to the sound of the river and jungle, with tropical birds and monkeys often in sight.

This unique environment is the perfect place to fulfill your desires of finding peace, relaxation and your inner balance.
