Costa Rica’s Adventure Capital

There’s good reason why Arenal is Costa Rica’s most energetic region: volcano-fed hot springs, emerald-draped hanging bridges, and the dramatic Arenal Volcano, one of the 10 most active volcanoes in the world. Whether you're kayaking, sport fishing, or exploring on horseback, you'll see why Arenal is the adventure capital of Costa Rica. After a hard day's play, there are plenty of day spas to rejuvenate you and connect with sublime surroundings. The Nayara Suite is located in Nayara Hotel, whereas the the Springs Villa lies within Nayara Springs, the adults-only VIP boutique hotel. The two communicate via a pedestrian bridge above the rainforest.
