Costa Rica, located in Central America, has become a very popular touristic destination due to its natural beauty and biodiversity. It offers beautiful black and white sanded beaches, lush forests, active & inactive volcanoes, lakes, rivers & protected areas. Plus it is home to 4% of the world’s total fauna with almost a million species. Because of that the touristic industry has grown incredibly. Many tour companies and hotels have been created close to all these attractions.
Since we at CostaRica.org.uk always get questions about what are the best hotels of the country here is our list:
Peace Lodge – This beautiful hotel is located Alajuela, Costa Rica’s Central Valley. It is located in La Paz Waterfall Gardens Nature Park which is considered one of the seven natural wonders of this country. It is great for every occasion but it is especially famous for hosting the most beautiful weddings.
The Springs Resort – This top of the line hotel is located in the Arenal area. It is so close to the Arenal Volcano that it has naturally heated hot springs. This is a super child friendly hotel with many different pools and even a wildcat rescue centre where over 30 endangered wild cats were rescued and are now being rehabilitated.
Arenal Nayara & Gardens – This is another gorgeous hotel in Arenal. This luxury hotel has the best views of the Arenal Volcano that we have seen. Here every room is an independent casita with enough distance between them to assure maximum privacy.
Lost Iguana Resort & Spa – This is yet another hotel in Arenal and this one combines beauty of the jungle and a perfect view of the active volcano. This hotel is landed on 80 acres of primary forest with some trails inside the property for some bird watching.
Arenas Del Mar – This is a luxurious resort located right next to Manuel Antonio National Park. It is perfect for families, romantic getaways and any occasion you can think of. They offer beautiful guest rooms, apartments and suites with spectacular ocean views and two restaurants where they serve amazing food.
Costa Verde – Hotel Costa Verde overlooks the Pacific beaches of Manuel Antonio National Park. It features two swimming pools with sundecks. The hotel also offers air conditioned studio and efficiency apartments with cable TV and a special group of 15 studios for couples.
Capitan Suizo – This one is located in Tamarindo, Guanacaste. Well actually it is located 1km outside of the town. The hotel is right in the middle of the forest and has beautifully landscaped gardens. Also you won’t have to go anywhere else to see animals such as monkeys, iguanas and birds because they are common visitors of the hotel.
La Paloma Lodge – This is an eco lodge located in one of Costa Rica’s most remote destinations, Drake Bay, on the northern tip of the Osa Peninsula. In here you can relax and forget about the rest of the world because it can only be reached by boat.
These are just a few of the best hotels on offer. Costa Rica is known for their gorgeous boutique hotels, great service and absolute fun!
