An oasis of rainforest green lies tucked among pastures on the southern shores of Lake Arenal in Costa Rica. Mystica Lodge and Retreats is a place where rainbows literally touch the waters and weary travelers can soothe mind, body, and especially the soul.

Mystica is an intimate hotel/retreat center in the Arenal area (half way between Tilaran and Nuevo Arenal) with 6 rooms in a main lodge, a private villa, 2 jungle cabins, and a 2 bedroom house for rent.  There is also our main restaurant with a wood burning oven.  We do have a beautiful yoga sanctuary in the forest overlooking a river, and the capacity for people on the platform would be 20 to 25. Mystica also hosts a healing room in a tree house for massage and Reiki, and we have a lovely dipping pool with a waterfall made of river stones.


Mystica is located 1 hour 20 minutes from Liberia airport or 3 hours from San Jose airport.

To get to know this wonderful country, we advise our guests to rent a car.
In the event that your activity takes place daily in the local area, for example kitesurf or windsurf or participant in a yoga retreat, please send us your flight details and we'll contract a private transporter who will come to pick you up.

Two of the walls are made entirely of glass, which offers opportunity to observe the inhabited jungle of monkeys and birds, such as toucans, parrots, and many more. The unique feature of this room is its privacy and freedom. Both have a view of the forest and the river.
