Arenal Hills — Gated Mountain Community Costa Rica

Arenal Hills — Gated Mountain Community Costa Rica

Tres Esquinas, Provincia de Alajuela, Los Angeles, San Ramon, Costa Rica

Costa Rica - Arenal Hills nestles in a fertile valley surrounded by rainforest and rivers. Homes are designed to showcase the panoramic views and forested setting surrounding the Arenal volcano. The environment is always top of mind in this community's master plan. Golf carts rather than cars are driven inside the manned entrance's parking lot. This makes it possible to utilize narrower pathways made of natural materials rather than two-laned roads paved with asphalt. The community will feature some of the most sought-after community amenities from the finest resorts around the world-private resort clubhouses, lakeside restaurant, an equestrian center, and more.
