After leaving Pacuare Lodge, we traveled to the Arenal area of Costa Rica. For this area we stayed at Nayara Hotel, Spa and Gardens. This was quite a change from Pacuare Lodge. Nayara Hotel is a large complex with 4 restaurants, multiple pools, a gym, yoga studio and more. We spent two nights here while exploring the area. Our room was beautiful with a large bedroom and a huge bathroom with indoor and outdoor showers. There was also a hot tub on the deck and we could see the volcano from there. The first night we ate at the main restaurant during a grill night and the food was very good. Breakfast was included and was also very good. They even put out some sandwiches and granola bars that you could take for later. Our second night we ate at Amor Loco. What a beautiful restaurant. The food wasn’t half bad either. My two favorite things were just exploring the beautiful grounds early in the morning and the 3 toed sloth that was in the tree 25 feet from our room. I would definitely stay here again.
