I am Marita Villalobos, a Costa Rican and owner of Marita’s B & B. I was born in Costa Rica. I have three daughters and seven grandchildren. I was six years old when I moved to Arenal, I took care of my 4- brothers and 3-sisters because my mother was ill. In 1979, Arenal was moved to accommodate Lake Arenal, a hydroelectric plant. The new location of Arenal is Nuevo Arenal. I purchased my house in Nuevo Arenal in 1979. I have owned this house for 40-years. My house is a ten minute walk to beautiful Lake Arenal. My house is located a short walk to all Nuuevo Arenal public facilities. My house is also centrally located to other locations that guest like to visit. In 2018 I converted my house into Marita’s B&B. Marita’s B&B is a one level house. Marita’s guest do not have to be concerned about climbing stairs, because there are none. Three bedrooms with a private bath were added to accommodate 10-guest. A private secured guest parking area was also added. Also added was a guest terrace that is accessible day and night even while it rains. I dumped 12 trucks of dirt on my back yard to create a 3-level garden that slopes. Cuttings of numerous plants were obtained from neighbors and planted in my garden. Nuevo Arenal is a beautiful town. It is located high and never gets too cold or too hot. Almost daily, a fresh wind blows and breathing the air is incredible. Crime in Nuevo Arenal is minimal. Children take pride in their school and sports activity. Typical of Costa Ricans, Nuevo Arenal citizens are friendly and well mannered.
