Perched on a hill with a mesmerizing view of Arenal Volcano, Nayara Springs, located in the temperate Pacific highlands zone, provides a respite from the hotter regions of Costa Rica. The cooler climate allows you to comfortably discover the exotic vibe of the tropical rainforest. A diversity of outdoor adventure activities, such as ziplining, canyoning, river rafting, and Nature tours, are centered in the closest town called La Fortuna. For a complete list of available adventures, see our Arenal Tours page. Private Piper jet transport can fly you to La Fortuna in 20 minutes from either San Jose or Liberia airports. Ground transportation is typically 2 hours from the international airports.

Your comfort will be assured by a personal host who will oversee your every need during your stay in Nayara Springs Villas. The hotel’s stellar staff are as genuinely friendly as they are professional. They are happy to take you for an impromptu guided walk to show you the sloths and other wildlife living on the premises. You can also scope out the tropical scenery from an 80-meter fixed hanging bridge crossing over a natural gorge, while the soft night lighting may inspire a romantic stroll under the stars.

Each restaurant showcases an array of gourmet cuisine from casual to formal prepared for you by top chefs. At the upscale Amor Loco, you’ll find a vast menu selection that accommodates any diet and includes an array of Caribbean specialties. Live music nightly. The more casual Mis Amores features artisan breads and pizza cooked in a wood oven and is open all day. You can also order from the pool bar or learn the process of roasting beans while tasting a fresh cup of coffee in Mi Cafecito, a cafe lounge and library. At the Nostalgia Wine & Tapas bar, you might like to indulge in a 5-course meal paired with 5 selected wines. For your special someone, you might request a romantic feast served exclusively for the two of you in a luxurious private setting overlooking a beautiful view.

The natural open design of the individual villas invites you to intimately connect with the jungle surrounding you. Accentuated by polished hardwood floors, your private balcony features a hot spring fed plunge pool, daybed, and small dining table with two chairs. Complimentary breakfast can be delivered right to your villa. Inside you’ll find tasteful furnishings, living area, and a 4-poster bed complete with luxurious linens. Two vanities provide plenty of space plus you can shower indoors, or frolic outside under the garden shower. An in-room espresso maker will produce the coffee of your choice. Mini fridge and coffee supplies are replenished daily. Room air conditioning is often not needed but available. With all this and more, it is no surprise Nayara Springs was listed as number 10 in the Top 100 Hotels in the World, by Travel and Leisure in 2018.
