Experience the tranquility of living in the beautiful, friendly community of San Luis on Lake Arenal. The quiet, secure lakeside community of San Luis is the picture perfect image of lush, tropical landscape set against the beautiful blue waters of Lake Arenal. This charming little down boasts a one of a kind lake port, making it ideal for boaters, kayakers and other watersports enthusiasts. Plus many of the homes here enjoy incredible views of both Arenal and Tenorio volcanoes. Visitors and locals alike relish the pleasant year-round weather and temperatures. Best of all, we have fantastic roadways and infrastructure here, so it’s easy to travel throughout the area.
San Luis is populated with typical Costa Rican small town amenities like a restaurants, grocery store, church and elementary school. Moreover, the next town over is Tilaran, the largest town near the lake. Tilaran has a vast array of retail and food stores, health and wellness clinics and service providers like car mechanics, vets, seamstresses and more. Have peace of mind knowing you’re never more than a short drive away from just about anything you could need.
One of the perks of living in San Luis is that you can be as active or relaxed as you feel like it. Take a midday siesta in your hammock under the porch or maybe you want a challenge and to hike one of the volcanoes. There are ample opportunities for other activities including horseback riding, windsurfing, kayaking and even hanging out at one of the local hot springs.
Both native Costa Ricans and expats are drawn to the sheer beauty of Lake Arenal. Unlike the beaches where it’s always sweltering hot, most people here don’t use air conditioning. With this agreeable climate, you’ll be able to enjoy the outdoors all day long, instead of being able to only handle a few hours in the heat. When you’re ready to escape the crowds and enjoy more simplistic living in paradise, San Luis might be the perfect place for you.
