Arenas del Mar, Quepos

You can indulge yourself in exciting experiences. You can treat yourself to total relaxation, fine dining and modern luxuries. You can be the only person on the beach – and it doesn’t have to cost the Earth, or impact on its future.

Arenas del Mar is a carbon-neutral resort - the first Costa Rican hotel to be awarded the Five Sustainability Leaf Award, and Five Stars. Which makes it the perfect, sustainable base for discovering indigenous flora and fauna on your luxury, tailor-made holiday to Costa Rica. Especially as you can literally step out of the hotel and walk into the untouched wilderness of a natural rainforest. Or saunter down from the hotel’s commanding cliff top setting, to a choice of two glorious beaches.
