Location & Directions

OUR LOCATION is unique: a secluded hill encircled by emerald forests, tropical gardens and unspoiled hills. Nayara overlooks the majestic Arenal Volcano, one of the youngest, still active volcanoes in this hemisphere, an imposing mountain that dominates the landscape of the area and that can be seen from almost every corner of the resort. Arenal is also the premier adventure destination in Costa Rica: soaring canopies, hanging bridges, waterfalls and caves, mountain biking, hiking, climbing, whitewater rafting, fishing, zip lines, and nature safaris. For those interested in nature, we offer bird watching, ecological reserves, and wildlife galore. For those looking for healing and wellness, the Arenal area has many hot springs to bath in and reenergize.
