The space

Arenal Tropical Gardens is a family venture that was born with the idea of creating a lodging spot in harmony with nature and with the mission of showing our customers a wonderful place where comfort is combined with lush views of the Lake, the majestic Arenal Volcano and the rainforest of La Fortuna in San Carlos; all these elements coexist and we respect the natural resources of the area.

Our property has forest, fruit trees, orchids, heliconias and trails that surround the entire farm.

The views are unparalleled. Pictures give you a glimpse but it's only when you're there do you see the wonder of it all. Note: the airbnb is right next to the SkyTrek adventures - they are the orange houses right next to the front entrance (the last right before you get to the SkyTrek parking lot)

Own transport is helpful. But staff can arrange pickup and transfer.

Highly recommended. This was the best location we stayed at during our stay in Costa Rica. The views are breathtaking. Eduardo and Marvin are very friendly and great hosts. The house is located in a very secluded yet central place. Would highly recommend staying here.

This is a great place to stay (a bit of a drive past the entrance to the Volcano Park BUT totally worth it!). I'm not sure there is a better place to stay with the view of the Volcano and Eduardo's tips were good especially the Oasis Night Hike (we saw so many insects, snakes etc). Eduardo does a mean breakfast too!

This place is nothing short of magical. If you are looking for 5 star service and to be spoiled by the "high life" and "concierge service" or to be waited on hand and foot, then this is NOT the place for you. However, If you truly want to experience Costa Rica for what it is, for the life they truly live day to day, with the best views of Lake Arenal and Arenal Volcano and Cerro Chato Mountain, your search ends here. Eduardo was responsive and helpful in answering my questions before I even booked the room. He searched for things that were not of normal requests and he accommodated a perfect strangers needs. He is very knowledgeable of all of the attractions, locations, timing and just about any other information you could ask for and if he doesn't know then I am certain that he would find out. His staff are all among the best spirited people I came to know. They are the salt of the earth, they are the heart of Costa Rica. All of their traditional Costa Rican breakfast selections were perfect and the view from the restaurant was stunning. I never needed anything during my entire stay there, but I am a simple man and I was on a quest. While you are staying at the Tropical Gardens Hotel and you are interested in excursions, Marco Steven is your guide. I got to spend just about every single day with Marco Steven and I have to say this, he was among the bravest of men and the most knowledgeable of plants and animals. He was tasked with something for me prior to my arrival and he followed through that task without hesitation and then followed through once I arrived. For this I will be eternally in his debt. The rooms all have brilliant views and the nature that surrounds this place is unreal. They are clean and well equipped for the basic needs of everyday living in the mountains and jungle. You won't spend much time in them but the time you do, will be comfortable. Every minute of the day if you allow yourself to sit and soak in the beauty, you may be visited by any number of Costa Rican "critters". I mean that in the best way possible. They are all of a peaceful nature and you cannot help but to sit in awe of all that surrounds you. La Fortuna is just on the other side of the Arenal Volcano and the short 20+ minute drive is among the best scenery I have been blessed to see. From 5 star hotels to natural hot springs, small grocery stores and restaurants to nightlife, it's all within reach. I will make this a necessary stop every single time I visit Costa Rica. If you need 5 star luxury....chances are you are not looking for adventure!! But I assure you, at the end of your vacation, you will feel 5 star rested!
