Visitors flock to the La Fortuna area of San Carlos to see the famous Arenal Volcano and enjoy the nearby hot springs. The Volcano Lodge and Springs has offered luxurious and comfortable accommodation to tourists since 1999. What started as a small hotel with 20 rooms has grown to 70 rooms with a restaurant and pool, as well as access to the hot springs. Located just a few kilometers from the volcano, guests enjoy beautiful views of the volcano and surrounding areas as well as access to the therapeutic mineral hot springs known to provide therapeutic properties.

The major attraction at the Volcano Lodge and Springs is the nearby volcano. When you are in the area, you can go on the Arenal Hanging Bridges hike to walk on the 600-acre reserve and see some of the indigenous flora and fauna. Alternatively, hike to see the beautiful waterfalls of the Río Celeste with one-of-a-kind colors and enjoy taking a dip in the natural hot springs. Those looking for adventure can try a white water rafting class or take an ATV tour.

After spending time in the nearby hot springs or hiking the volcano, relax by the onsite swimming pools and Jacuzzi. Alternatively, take advantage of the spa services at the hotel. Relax your aching muscles and remove any stress with a massage session, and add some aromatherapy for additional relaxation. Additionally, clean and detoxify your body with body treatments using wraps and scrubs. Take years off your face with an exfoliating and nourishing facial.

Dine at the onsite restaurant, the Sura Bar & Bistro. Enjoy a varied menu with local and international cuisine options in a restaurant that perfectly imbues the natural surrounding environment of the volcano with its traditional Costa Rican architecture-inspired structure. As you dine, you can enjoy stellar views of the Arenal Volcano as you indulge in the tasty cuisine and the fine selection of wine, beer and other liquors. If you do not wish to make a night of it, stop by the Wet Bar for a drink and/or appetizers. Alternatively, you can meet for drinks and company at the Arenal Lobby Bar, which also has TVs playing sporting events or music playing.

"Stayed at Volcano Lodge 2 nights while in CR. Did not have a reservation and found it while looking at various places in the area. It was late when we stopped. The entire staff was very cordial and assisted us from the time we walked in until we were situated in our rooms. Food was very good--breakfast FREE. Clean rooms, animal towel decorations everyday, comfy beds, good view of volcano, great hottub and pool, beautiful surroundings, recommendations on site-seeing, communication not a problem, TV, the whole deal! And....the price was the best of the 5 places we stopped at! Will gladly return! [Not far from Fortuna-our favorite town on the trip. Shopping, dining, coffee shops--you name it!]"
