Agua Inn was a location out of the way, quiet and perfect for what we were looking for. Rooms were very clean, included great breakfasts, and had shared common rooms to relax in. Javier was welcoming and very helpful when needing information about restaurants and sights. Staying here gave us the chance to see the Arenal area, do some ziplining...

Costa Rica is known for the warm and inviting people of this fantastic country. However, Sue and I through our travels to this beautiful country have never met anyone quite like Javier Ruiz at the Agua Inn in Nuevo Arenal, Costa Rica. Javier was our host and from the moment we arrived, he treated us not as guests, but as...

This small B&B located off-the-beaten track but quite close (4 min drive) to Nuevo Arenal, is wonderful! With about 4 rooms, total, you get a very personal and warm welcome and that vibe continues throughout your stay. We met many people who return to this little B&B year after year and it's clear as to why: the setting is stunning...

This is a great place to enjoy peace and a beautiful retreat with the sound of the river down below so soothing. We walked into a cheerful welcome and immediately felt as though we were being welcomed into someone's home. The breakfast which included fresh-squeezed orange juice was generous and tasty and varied from day to day. The rooms were...

This four room hotel is remote - you definitely need a vehicle to get here, but it is well worth the trip. About an hour from La Fortuna, it has a rushing stream to lull you to sleep our to relax by for an afternoon.

This is a real B&B. It is very unique, and it has a swimming pool near a small river around the B&B. The dinning area has a nice view. If you are passing by here, you can take a break and relax at the swimming pool.
