Surrounded by over 2,000 acres of rainforest from its location near a national park, the Hotel Arenal Lodge offers views of the nearby volcano, lake, exotic wildlife and tropical vegetation from every corner of the property. The family-friendly resort is near the Arenal Eco Zoo and Butterfly Conservatory.

Rooms feature coffeemakers, microwaves, mini fridges and satellite television. Visitors can upgrade to rooms with views of the volcano and king-size beds or to suites that look out at the rainforest from private balconies and offer kitchenettes and space to accommodate up to six guests. Chalets, perched on a hilltop behind the lodge’s main building, offer panoramic views of the volcano and lake from floor-to-ceiling windows, kitchenettes and room for five people. All stays include complimentary daily breakfast.

On site, the rainforest property offers a hummingbird garden, an infinity pool with Jacuzzis hidden in the gardens, rainforest trails with well-marked routes, horseback riding tours and bird-watching excursions. After a day full of outdoor adventures, guests can soothe travel-weary muscles with treatments at the spa, hit the gym or dine on local cuisine and handcrafted cocktails at the hotel’s restaurant and bar.
