About this listing

The Smithsonian rooms feature huge picture windows giving you a premiere majestic view of the volcano from the comfort of your bed.
Each room has two queen beds, a deck with volcano view, private bathroom, fans, coffee maker and room safe.

The space

The Arenal Observatory Lodge crowns a ridge overlooking Arenal Lake and the looming volcano only 1.7 miles away, all within the refreshing ambiance of a working 870 acres farm that includes 400 acres in reforestation and 270 acres of natural forest, all surrounded by the tropical splendor of the Arenal National Park. Arenal Lake is the largest in Costa Rica and offers excellent sport fishing.
The lodge actually grew out of several extremely humble buildings originally built for housing scientists and researchers from the Smithsonian Institute and Earthwatch.

The Arenal Observatory Lodge is the best place to experience the thrill and beauty of the Arenal volcano because of its location, its long history as a research center and the knowledge and the experience of its staff and guides.

Other things to note

Buffet breakfast, morning guided walk & taxes are included.

I cannot recommend the Observatory Lodge enough - waking up to the stunning views in the morning enough however, it offers plenty more with the activities & local hikes available on site. It is also a great place to watch birds and wildlife. One of my favourite places so far!

Arenal Observatory Lodge is a MUST SEE if you are traveling in Costa Rica. The grounds are immaculate, the restaurant and happy hour is great, and the views just outside the bedroom windows are extraordinary.

We loved staying at the Observatory. Incredibly scenic, lots of animals, birds, and other wildlife all over the place. Excellent trails / hikes including hanging bridges and waterfalls. Our family really enjoyed our stay!

For over 9 years I ve been working on the tourism industry and the last year I am part of the Customer Service Staff of Arenal Observatory Lodge, an amazing natural spot at the foot of the Arenal Volcano in Costa Rica.
This time working here is a grateful experience to share and go beyond expectations for our guests.

I will be more than happy to be your hostess in Arenal Observatory Lodge.

My best from Costa Rica
