Meu casa e eu pegamos o tour “combo” em duas partes. Na primeira olhamos a cachoeira e os pontes em suspensao e a natureza toda, o pessoal excelente! A explicacao muito boa, depois o excelente almocoorganico com um excelente “guarito” e cafe, mmmm!

No seguinte dia, caminhamos pelas trilhas para volcao Arenal, em seguida as aguas termais – uma maravilla! E finalmente jantamos muito rico (demais). O mais importante foi as pessoas tralando na empresa, alegres, prontos e principalmente com o desejo de ver seu pais progressar, cuidando da natureza toda. Parabens! Obrigado, muito obrigado. Delsa e Ricardo Vargas

My wife, 7 month old baby and I, stayed at Arenal Lodge between 9/22/2016-9/24/2016. It was not a planned visit, but while on a drive to Guanacaste on a rainy night my son who is teething, began having extreme discomfort and we stopped at the nearest hotel and it happened to be Arenal Lodge. Aldo, was the most welcoming and caring of receptionist and ensured that my wife and child were placed in the room while he and I took care of the reservation. At night we were unable to see our surroundings but when I woke up the next morning and opened up the terrace door I was amazed by the view that we had of the Arenal Volcano, it was breathtaking. The grounds are well kept and the infinity pool and jacuzzi coupled with nature all around, was just what we needed to recharge the batteries and unwind. We enjoyed our stay so much, that we extended the reservation another day and would have stayed longer, if not for the fact that we had to fly back home that weekend. Great hotel, great employees,food is delicious and Aldo the receptionist was exceptional. I will definitely return to the hotel and will recommend to friends and family.

Can’t say enough about the tours. We had an incredible experience yesterday at the Volcano. Hugo was very knowledgeable! We had Alan for the Hanging Bridges and he spotted so much for us to see – howlers monkeys, flogs, birds, tarantulas. We never would have seen all of this without his artful eyes. Hint: Be sure to split the big tour into two days – seeing it all in one would have been too much. Meredity and Jamie, New Jersey

Take the tours - the walk and hot springs are the best. The view from our room was outstanding; we will be back to Arenal. Curt and Ellen Stacy, Boquete, Panama.

Thank you to the wonderful staff at Arenal Lodge for a great holiday. The Jacamar tour company – as recommended – was really excellent. We loved the waterfall and volcano hike. The guides took our children’s needs into account.

We also loved the horseride in the grounds of the hotel.

Thank you for all your help and kindness!

Arenal Lodge es un hermoso lugar con una vista fantástica al Volcán y Lago Arenal. El hotel esta rodeado de naturaleza, jardines, senderos, floral y fauna. Cuenta con una alberca, dos jacuzzis, una caminata por la selva y muchísimas áreas verdes. 

El hotel Arenal Lodge esta a 25min del pueblo La Fortuna, que esta lleno de restaurantes, mercados y cualquier tipo de servicios.

Sin duda volvería a quedarme a ir.

do melhor da costa rica

Excelente lodge, e excelente localização com vista muito privilegiada para o vulcão arenal. O acesso ao lodge é difícil mas vale a pena. recepção com um acolhimento exceptional, sempre disponíveis para ajudar a resolver. Restaurante muito bom com preços razoáveis. Quarto excecional, grande arrumado e super limpo. Varanda com cadeiras de baloiço e uma vista muito boa. O lodge tem senderos que os hóspedes podem fazer sem problemas de se perderem. Nestes passeios existem pontos onde os colibris aparecem com frequência nomeadamente no borboletário. ao pé do hotel tem uma piscina com vista infinita para o vulcão, e dois jacuzzis. Ao pequeno almoço tem uma local em frente ao restaurante onde colocam fruta fresca e onde aparece toda a espécie de pássaros.Muito bom e com nota máxima.

We selected the 4 tour package: Volcano, Tabacon Hot springs (Day one) and Hanging Bridges, Waterfall
(Day 2).
Hands down the best value!  We highly recommend doing these tours activities in 2 days.  Jessica made the process seamless because of her expertise.  All the tour guides were super friendly and very knowledgeable.  Jacamar made our vacation fun and stress free.
Muchas gracias?

Thank you so very much for helping my father and I with organizing our tours in Arenal.  The sip-line adventure was awesome and we were able to take amazing pictures of Arenal Volcano and lake during our tour.  The hot springs were also amazing.  Thanks again for your expertise, passion and warmth.

Best wishes, Sofia

Night walk tour: Had a great evening, saw lots of different wildlife on the walk thanks to our very knowledgable guide.  Lovely to meet the guide's family.  Very friendly and hospitable and we ate home cooked typical Costa Rican food.  Great trip - recommended.
