Travel Agency in Costa Rica - Costa Rican Trails Logo
Northern Zone - Arenal Volcano
Amor Arenal

Its serene elegance and understated luxury nestled in a wild verdant rainforest.

 

The resort sits atop the foothills of Arenal Volcano where the higher elevation makes for cooler temps and constant breezes that are sure to lure you outdoors. Admire a front-row view of the towering Arenal Volcano from your Casita deck and spa-plunge pool. Enjoy a panoramic view of the San Carlos Valley from your front porch.

 

Right below the Casitas you’ll find paths to explore the surrounding jungle. Our trails are perfect for long walks through spectacular local flora and fauna. They offer exclusive access to the babbling streams of our canyon below. Post-hike, we invite guests to relax in our secluded thermal-spring pools hidden in the rainforest.

 

Our personalized guest services aim to deliver all aspects of the ‘Pure Life’ or ‘Pura Vida’ as they say in Costa Rica—including nature, wellness, delicious healthy food, and fun.

 

We are an unmatched rainforest immersion experience with impeccable service and 5-star amenities through and through.

Food

We are a farm-to-table kitchen. Our seasonal menus use only the freshest, local and organic ingredients to deliver healthy and delicious meals in both our restaurants.

 

Restuarante El Rancho

Start the day right with your choice of a la carte dishes or our abundant breakfast buffet. You’ll find all the traditional dishes like Gallo Pinto here for sure, but also healthier options like our ‘Pinto Sano’, made with brown rice and veggies, for example. You’ll also find nutrient-rich organic fruit and veggie smoothies, farm-fresh eggs, yogurt and cheeses from local grass-fed cows. It just might be the freshest breakfast you’ve ever tasted!

Our lunch and dinner menus rotate based on seasonal availability of the freshest ingredients. We feature fish from our own spring water pools, free range chicken and eggs, grass fed beef, and vegetables and fruits from our gardens.

Every diet deserves delicacies, so you’ll also find plenty of non-flour gluten free breads, sugarless healthy desserts, among other alternate options.

 

 

La Jaranita Gastropub

La Jaranita is our “fun zone” and tapas restaurant. As our specialty restaurant the menu focuses on delivering a big taste in a small bite. Delight in our craft cocktails and dance the night away! We’ll have different entertainment ranging from live music to DJs and even Karaoke. We also provide complimentary Latin dance classes every evening during our Infusion Cocktails happy hour. La Jaranita is open from 4PM to Zarpe (last-call) so don’t forget your dancing shoes!
