The complimentary tortilla-making class is a hit with guests, and the included sustainability tour will fulfill your curiosity about the hotel’s green practices. On-site amenities include a small spa, gift shop, and two swimming pools, and the hotel also offers additional on-property tours such as birdwatching.

Awarded with a Level 5 (highest level) Certificate of Sustainable Tourism through the Costa Rican Tourism Board, the concept behind Arenas del Mar has always been to minimize the impact on the surrounding environment while providing the most benefit to the local community through employment and growth opportunities.

Of the 11 acres, only 25% is developed, which allows for plenty of untouched flora and opportunities for wildlife-spotting right on the property. Water is heated using solar panels, wastewater is cleaned and recycled for irrigation, and the whole building’s structure blends in with the surrounding forest.
