Volcán Arenal and the surrounding area is a part of Costa Rica where outdoor activities are widely varied and accessible. Hot springs warmed by the nearby volcano are extremely popular, as are waterfall hikes, horseback rides, and white water rafting tours. You can also take an intense hike, guided or self-guided, up Cerro Chato. Truthfully, there are many more options in addition to these in the Arenal area.
Green Lagoon Wellbeing Resort rests on a 400-acre (162-ha) farm between Cerro Chato and Arenal. In addition to attractive and comfortable rooms, the property offers a pool, restaurant, and private trails to enjoy birds and other wildlife.
Standard and Superior Rooms feature views of the garden. Inside, wooden walls and room accents feel cozy, bright, and clean. These rooms are appointed with air conditioning, a mini-fridge, coffee maker, and in-room safe. They accommodate up to three people. Standard Rooms offer 1 double and 1 single bed; Superior Rooms have 1 king and 1 single.
If you’d like a little more privacy, charming steps through the landscaped property lead to individual villas. The villas are lined with windows and have lovely views of gardens, the pool, and nearby mountains. A sunroom enclosed in glass offers some extra space in that outdoor-indoor middle ground. A dining area and kitchenette with granite countertops make it possible to have meals in the room. Villas contain 2 king beds and 1 futon.
The Honeymoon Bungalow takes the top spot in comfort at GreenLagoon. Lined with windows much of the way around, you can enjoy the scenery from almost anywhere.
