The town of Tronadora itself has plenty of stunning properties overlooking both the lake and the mountains, as well as stores, churches and pastures that slope down to the lakeside.  There are two farming peninsulas that jut out into Lake Arenal from the Tronadora coast and create a quiet little cove, ideal for fishing, kayaking, paddle boarding or just floating. Just beyond this is a 180 degree view of the lake from one end to another, a distance of about 20 miles. On the opposite shore are the towns of Aguacate and Nuevo Arenal.

The climate around Lake Arenal shifts depending on where you are, and Tronadora is happily located on the sunnier shore, enjoying clear green vistas all the year long. It is also one of the windier corners, making it a popular destination for windsurfing. This quiet local village is bordered on the south by Tilarán, a popular destination for contemporary amenities such as restaurants, supermarkets, banks, pharmacies and veterinarians. Tronadora is also a mere 2.5 hours from the beach and close to all major Costa Rican highways, providing easy access to the rest of this variant country, rich in biodiversity, landscape and fun.
