What a beautiful location! Couldn't be better. Gorgeous black sand beach. Walkable to Cahuita National Park. Awesome food nearby. Check out the Reggae Bar. The pool is amazing too. I'd more than happily stay here again.

Arenal is about 90 kms northwest of San José; Cahuita to San José is about a 3½ hour drive. I would easily add another 2 hours to get to Arenal and this if traffic is good! A better option is to stay in Alajuela first, visit... More
