We went to Caño Negro and it was amazing – monkeys, alligators, lizards, birds, sloths – all the CR wonders! Do this!

We had a wonderful day around the hotel when we arrived. Trails, horseback ride and at the end a massage. Second day we went to Cano Negro and our guide was excellent. Great views and wildlife. Tabacon Hot Spring was amazing. With all the fantastic experience we leave with a perfect impression of this part of Costa Rica.

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.

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.
Our second trip to Costa Rica and using Jacamar. Excellent tour company. Cano Negro was amazing, River rafting was incredible. Guides were very informative. Jessie is great, helped both times to pick great tours. The Arenal View! Love the peaceful and serenity! Pura vida.

Every one so friendly at "Arenal Lodge". We had a wonderful time !!! Our 2 days of touring was more than "wonderful". Jessy's recommendations were the best (great for our group of 4). Tour guides "Anderson" and "Alex" so informative with great personalities. All employee's so sweet.
Thank you so much.

Encantador Hotel, mejores excursiones, muy bonito el volcan, impresionante la catarata y lo mejor unas buenas aguas termales. Un saludo desde Espana y Pura Vida. Pablo
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.

This trip was nothing short of a dream. Everyone was sooo hospitable and kind and as a Muslim woman, I felt so appreciated and part of the family. Food was amazing. People were amazing and the views breathtaking. I will dearly miss this place.
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.

This is first time doing outdoor vacation. Could not have chose a better place. On top of it being in the middle of the rain forest, having a great view - it also is very good price - room was so clean, and Jacamar Tours did everything perfectly. Talk about being punctual, this company was never late. We did Ziplining, canyoning, rafting, sight seeing, horse riding - and even used them as a taxi to town. The food they provide in between their incredible tours was so authentic and amazing it blew my mind. EVERY EMPLOYEE was so enthusiastic and kind. Unlike any other vacation. Will definately come back.
