Day 1

Alajuela – Arrive at your Luxurious Resort in the Costa Rican Rainforest

Arenal Volcano towers over the landscape on the horizon, visible from the runway of La Fortuna Domestic Airport.  The conical peak of the volcano stands nearly 5,500 feet and shapes the skyline of the region, and offers visitors from around Costa Rica and the world a chance to see the majesty of nature and soak in the region’s natural pools heated by the geothermal activity.   Before you can take it all in, your private transfer will greet you at baggage claim to escort you to your hotel.

You will travel through the rainforest to reach the luxurious Rio Celeste Hideaway Hotel, a small eco-friendly resort hidden near the edges of Tenorio Volcano National Park. The intimate accommodation is just one hour away from Arenal and has a secluded ambiance with gorgeous, spacious rooms. The restaurant encourages interactions with the floral aromas of the surrounding forest through an open-air dining room, allowing you to view the vegetation and relax listening to the trickling water from the koi pond.

The restaurant serves delectable international cuisine, as well as delicious traditional Costa Rican flavors. The lush gardens accentuate the remote atmosphere, concealing three hot tubs, a wet bar, and the inviting cool waters of a crystal-clear pool. The friendly staff will welcome you with a refreshing fruit drink, and you will be able to hear the birds twittering in the canopy that hangs over the cobbled walkways of the hotel. The remainder of the day will be at your leisure to indulge in the soothing comforts of the hotel, and you could even rejuvenate your body and mind with a yoga class in the open-air studio.
