Map & Directions
Rooms & Rates
The Volcano Lodge & Springs, a hotel just outside of La Fortuna, swiftly picked up a loyal following after its debut in 1999 with only 20 rooms. Fast forward more than a decade, and the current operation has more than tripled and continues to grow steadily, most recently with the addition of its own natural hot springs complex in 2013.
The resort-like hotel, overflowing with tropical gardens, offers the perfect vantage point to take in unobstructed views of the nearby Arenal Volcano. It's just off the main road, a popular choice for large tour groups passing through, and a favorite among families. There are two different pools, plus hiking trails through the park-like grounds that lead to a waterfall, and a playground to entertain the kids.
Guest rooms are basic and minimally furnished, encouraging guests to get outdoors -- starting with the private terrace attached to each room. All but the Superior rooms also have their own private outdoor hot springs, enclosed by tall shrubs for privacy.
Grab a hearty breakfast (it's complimentary) on the patio with volcano views, and relax by the pool with a cocktail from the swim-up bar until dinner time. Then head into town, which is 10 minutes by car, or stay put for an affordable meal at the open-air restaurant, which also features a full bar.
