Our long term renters have left and with a fresh coat of paint we're ready to offer the chalet once again!
We've been written up! Check out the April/May 2010 issue of Su Casa magazine.
Toro Amarillo is an alternative to the intense heat of the coast with average temperatures of 26C / 79F during the day and cooler nights for comfortable sleeping. We are centrally located just over an hour from San Jose's Juan Santamaria Airport between the Pacific and Caribbean coasts. You can head to either coast to explore what each has to offer. A contemporary design with soaring 30ft ceiling over the living and dining area, modern kitchen with a full set of appliances, granite counter tops, and a 3rd floor loft entertainment center. The front half of the chalet is glass to take full advantage of the awesome mountain views! We share the valley with El Silencio Lodge which offers superb dining and Spa facilities.
El Silencio Hotel – A couple of steeper hills and stairs but generally a fairly easy walk to three different waterfalls. Stay for lunch and take advantage of some of the Spa’s offerings.
The La Paz Waterfall Gardens – A gentle downhill walk through various open air enclosures and gardens for monkeys, birds, butterflies and reptiles as you pass by a series of waterfalls.
Various nurseries and coffee plantations to visit.
San Jose – The suburbs of San Jose have excellent dining, shopping and cinemas.
Catarata del Toro – Hike or rappel down into the gorge of a 270 foot waterfall! Walk the trails and stay for lunch!
Fly fishing. There are trout ponds just a couple hundred meters from the chalet and lots of rivers – bring your tackle!
White water rafting.
Horse back riding.
Arenal Volcano, hot springs and lake (be sure to make a reservation).
