The exclusive Arenas del Mar Beachfront & Rainforest Resort is set in lush greenery right by the beautiful beaches of Playa Playitas and Playa Espadilla and affords outstanding views of the crystal-clear waters and magnificent Manuel Antonio National Park.
The resort has just 38 rooms decorated in minimalist Costa Rican style and equipped with air conditioning, a ceiling fan, Wi-Fi, a TV, a safe, a coffee maker and an ensuite bathroom with toiletries. Each room also has a cosy little balcony.
The resort’s two restaurants offer something for gastronomes and hungry adventurers alike. The chef combines local, sustainable ingredients with the Costa Rican “Pura Vida” spirit. Your a la carte breakfast (included) is served in the restaurant at the resort itself, where you can also enjoy your dinner overlooking the national park. The other restaurant is located in the resort’s private section of Playa Playitas beach. Lunch and dinner are both served here in tropical surroundings.
If pure relaxation is the order of the day, the resort has two lovely pools: one at the resort itself and one on the private part of Playa Playitas. When the day is drawing to a close, you can settle down with a mojito by the pool at the resort or head down to the resort’s swings on the beach and enjoy the stunning sunset over the Pacific.
At the resort, you can also learn how to make Costa Rican-style tortillas, try your hand at yoga or enjoy a spot of pampering with spa treatments at the resort’s Las Brisas wellness centre.
On this tour, you will experience three of South America’s absolute highlights: Argentina’s beautiful capital Buenos Aires, the impressive Iguazú Falls and amazing Rio de Janeiro.
Get right up close to Costa Rica’s stunning scenery and wildlife in Tortuguero National Park, at Arenal Volcano and in Monteverde Cloud Forest, and end the tour at Playa Sámara’s beautiful beach.
