Arenal Paraiso

Located in the northern region of Costa Rica, just in front of the glorious Arenal volcano, the Arenal Parai­so hotel is the perfect place to enjoy Costa Rica´s real spirit of peace, nature and adventure. The hotel has a quiet and cozy atmosphere that blends to perfection the powerful view of the volcano and the exuberant tropical gardens.  Even though the Arenal volcano is the main attraction of the area, guests can also enjoy many other exciting activities such as canopy tour through the rainforest, whitewater rafting, horseback riding to a huge waterfall or exploring the Venado Caverns. If visitors prefer to spend a relaxing day they can stay at the lodge and either have a massage at Spa, take a hot bath at the hotspring mineral pool or spend the afternoon daydreaming next to the swimming pool. For the perfect dining experience the hotel restaurant offers international cuisine and delicious meats (the specialty of the house).
