This 700 acre farm was purchased in 1982 by the Quesada Family. Half of it is cloud forest and entirely within the boundaries of the Arenal / Monteverde protected area. El Gran Mirador, was known for it's panoramic vistas, primary forest, rich farmlands, and dairy-farms that produced quality products. A primitive "trail" to Lago Arenal exists since 100 years and was used by the farmers to bring their goods to market in the towns of Castillo, Rio Chiquito, and Arenal. That same trail exists today, thanks in great part to the efforts by the Quesada family, and is featured as an unforgettable horseback ride between the town of La Fortuna and Monteverde. El Gran Mirador continues to operate as a working farm.

The Stables of the Mirador Lodge have 40 horses, ready for a wild and amazing tour across rivers, virgin jungle with wildlife, and farms, a 2½ ride from the Lodge to the Lake Arenal Lagoon, there you'll be able to rest during a 20 minutes boat ride across the lake to the Dam.
