First of all- Shout out to Edward who booked any and all day activities. He provided a wealth of information about the area and what we could get into, even off the beaten path.
Shout out to Eric- our awesome bartender who whipped up his own specialty cocktails for us!
Arenal Springs was our first stop after staying in San Jose and picking up our rental car the night before. The drive was long but scenic, not bored for a second, but we were definitely relieved to finally arrive at Arenal Springs! So beautiful. The grounds were immaculate and the staff welcomed us in with a cold towel and papaya juice cocktail (nectar of the gods!). The place is set on an incline so that every bungalow gets an ideal view of the volcano. But please people, don't have unrealistic expectations to see the volcano in full the entire time your there. Your in the rainforest. We booked a room with a queen bed through a travel agent and when we walked in there were 2 queen beds, which was totally unexpected. When we expressed our concerns that we were celebrating our anniversary and did not plan on using separate beds, they upgraded us to a master suite with indoor rock pool, outdoor shower and huge tub with no questions asked. Customer service- check. It was a wonderful resort and would recommend it to anyone!
