Arenal Nayara Hotel Boutique — This resort is a component of the Deluxe version of the “Discover Costa Rica” tour. The resort boasts beautiful views of the Arenal Volcano and the surrounding countryside. This little jewel features 44 suites and rooms nestled in a tropical jungle paradise. Apple clients will receive the Deluxe Casita Suite that features an indoor/outdoor shower, jacuzzi, hammock on the balcony, IPod docking station, and DVD player with free movies. Heated pool with pool bar and pool cocktail tables. One open air restaurant and bar, free WIFI, free International calling and a mountainside spa! There’s even a state-of-the art Wine Bar available for guests to sample the 32 different varieties of wines from around the world! I sampled the 2004 Casillero del Diablo Chardonnay — Tasty! Lots of walking up and down hills. Wonderful property!

Arenal Kioro Hotel — This resort is part of the Luxury option for the “Discover Costa Rica” tour. By far the very best views of the Arenal Volcano! This 53 room resort is built right at the base of the mountain. Some of the largest rooms I’ve seen. Resort features 1 bar and 2 restaurants, free WIFI, 1 pool with Kiddie pool and fantastic tiered thermal jacuzzis with magma heated mineral water. Nice spa that features products made on site from the surrounding gardens. There’s even a helipad! Again, lots of walking up and down hills. Beautiful!!!
