Spotlight Costa Rica! Arenal Observatory Lodge in Costa Rica – A Room With A View!

Can you imagine yourself arriving to a place that is in the middle of the Costa Rican tropical rain forest? From unseen corners you hear welcoming howls of the howler monkeys and colorful hummingbirds whiz by you as you walk on a trail that brings you directly in front of Arenal Volcano one of the top ten most active volcanoes in the world. Well it is possible in Arenal Observatory Lodge! This is a beautiful hotel in La Fortuna located 120 meters above Lake Arenal that offers comfort and privacy for families in vacation and for honeymooners looking for some romance.

The views of Volcano Arenal are great from La Fortuna towards the volcano. Even the way the wind blows, the ashes never get carried to this side of the Volcano. But, the real beauty is when you drive 45 minutes southeast. Situated on a ridge you will find Arenal Observatory Lodge. Due to it’s location, you can view the lava flow and never be affected by it.

The hotel has some of the most beautiful grounds of the area, great views of the volcano and from Lake Arenal and also trails that will delight any nature lover. One is following an ancient lava trail and the other is to a 20-foot waterfall where you can jump in and get refreshed!

Here’s what people have to say about them and if you don’t believe them, I dare you to try it!

Probably one of our most memorable stays in Costa Rica. We stayed here at the beginning of our trip and witnessed some pretty fantastic rumblings and lava flows from the volcano. The grounds are absolutely gorgeous, with beautiful flowers and wildlife right outside your room.


We spent two nights at the Arenal Observatory Lodge and wished it had been longer. Our biggest surprise was how beautiful and well kept the grounds of the lodge are. They own over 800 acres with enough trails to keep you busy. The pool area and large Jacuzzi are very clean and nicely set with the woods in the background.
