Arenal Volcano National Park

Arenal Observatory Lodge is a 3 STAR mountain lodge, according to the Costa Rican Tourism Institute, the highest rating a mountain lodge can receive. It is also categorized as a 4 BAND Ecolodge (out of a maximum of 5) in a program sponsored by the ICT to rate sustainability.

It is estimated that only ten people in every three million will ever have the opportunity of seeing a volcanic eruption in their lifetime, while only four persons in 3 million will ever view an active lava flow.

Vibrant pastures, undulating mountains and pastures, patches of lush cloud and rain forests and picturesque Costa Rican villages. On the way, you’ll pass by working dairy farms, hillsides full of grazing cattle, as well as fields of papaya, citrus, cacao, yucca, sugar cane and, of course, coffee.

There are actually several routes to the Arenal Observatory Lodge. They all take roughly 3 hours by car from San José. The most popular route heads out of San José along the Inter American Highway to the town of San Ramón, where you head into the hills, passing through La Tigre, on the way to La Fortuna.

Meals are served in our large main dining room, which features walls of windows opening onto views of the volcano and Lake Arenal.
