My boyfriend and I are torn on deciding which of the two to book our trip for 5 nights the 2nd week of June 2012. I have been to Costa Rica and stayed in AI in Guanacaste and he has never been. We both want to try something different and adventurous. We like both properties, I'm aware that Nayara is expensive but what i'm drawn to is the balcony with the jacuzzi, hotel overall and he wants Arenal Springs for the bigger pool and springs and because it is less expensive. Can someone please help us decide if staying at Arenal Springs is a better option considering we will need the extra $$ for meals and tours.
