Arenal and the north: Arenal Manoa

Arenal Manoa

The cheerful riverside Arenal Manoa lodge makes the most of its rural location and truly spectacular views of Arenal volcano, which can be seen framed by the wide private terraces of the bedrooms or simply rising up majestically above the pool and dining area.

Rooms are bright and modern, in bungalow-style buildings, with rocking chairs perfectly positioned for admiring the fantastic volcano views. There is plenty of space and light, and a natural ambience enhanced by plants and tropical touches.

There is a restaurant and a wet bar beside the swimming pool and Jacuzzi in the garden. You can also have a massage in the comfort of your room or in the spa.

The hotel has its own dairy farm on the premises which you can visit for an insight into traditional Costa Rican agriculture, and other excursions include visits to Arenal volcano, forest hikes, white-water rafting, and horse riding to La Fortuna waterfalls.

What our experts say

There's a surprisingly wide range of things to do here from this countryside lodge. It's the obvious choice as a base for visiting the active volcano, which splutters into life sporadically.
