The Arenal Volcano Lodge provides your accommodation for the first part of your classic Costa Rica adventure vacation. With 65 well-appointed rooms set amidst tropical gardens, the hotel offers WiFi, a good restaurant, and a swimming pool. Sitting in the on-site restaurant or wandering around the property, you can enjoy watching the brightly colored birds and butterflies that come to feast on the local flowers planted throughout the grounds.
The hotel takes protects the environment by draining all thermal water safely through channels that don’t disturb the fauna. In addition, all furniture is built on-site to ensure responsible use of materials and reduce waste.
Near the hotel, you have an abundance of tours in La Fortuna. For the adventure seekers, there are zip lines, white water rafting, and canyoning tours, while those seeking more relaxing pastimes can enjoy thermal pools and jungle excursions.
From Arenal, a private transfer will take you to your second destination, Manuel Antonio. Enjoy the luxury of Si Como No, the vibrant surrounding nature, and the exciting town. This hotel blends right into the hillside thanks to conscientious design and building which led to only one tree being cut down during construction! Just across the street, you’ll find the butterfly botanical atrium, crocodile lagoon, and amphibian jungle. Si Como No is committed to a responsible farm-to-table menu and protecting the surrounding environment.
While here, experience the amazing Manuel Antonio National Park on a guided tour where your guide will point out and explain all about the flora and fauna of the region.
