Location & Directions

Nayara Springs is a luxury boutique hotel for travelers wishing to experience the stark natural beauty of the rainforest. Our location is unique; a secluded hill encircled by emerald forests, tropical gardens and unspoiled hills. The property sits on a gentle slope on the fringes of The Arenal Volcano Natural Park against the backdrop of the majestic Arenal Volcano, one of the youngest and still active volcanoes in this hemisphere. The entrance to the hotel is via a pedestrian bridge opening onto breathtaking views of the jungle, that communicates Nayara Springs from its sister property Nayara Hotel, Spa & Gardens.

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 hotel offers a private plunge pool filled with natural mineral thermal springs in every villa to bathe and reenergize, and three outdoor Jacuzzis hidden in the gardens.
