The Hotel Arenal Springs Resort and Spa, located at the base of the Arenal Volcano. It was not the American standard of 4 star, but it was nice. It has small “cabanas” on the hillside with a separate lodge and restaurant. Staying at the base of the volcano was a nice experience. Due to cloud cover, we could not see the top!
The RIU Guanacaste… a beautiful all inclusive hotel. This hotel has a very nice pool area and two 24 hour buffet restaurants. A small casino and shopping area are also connected to the property.
Note: Costa Ricans, as a whole are known as the Happiest People in the world, and are promoting tourism in their country. They aim to please! BM
