Help with accommodation

El Silencio del Campo is booked but I really like the general location of the hotel. Could someone suggest another hotel around that general area.

If you hire a driver from San Jose where in La Fortuna can you pick-up a rental car? I know we want to take some tours but really like to go to the Volcano National Park and restaurants on our own.

Maybe check Tabacon, Los Lagos, and Nayara. Don Rufino is a good restaurant if you're looking for one.

Arenal Springs Resort, Los Lagos, Arenal Volcano Inn, Volcano Lodge and Arenal Manoa are all relatively close and roughly in the same price range. There are a few rental car offices in town.

We just left Silencio del campo today. Beautiful rooms. All the rooms are facing the volcano. Staff is always busy keeping the ground clean. We strongly recommended. It's up on the hill and if you want to go down o the town, it costs you about $7. There's a small restaurant on the side street called Soda Visquez. Very good local food and price is very reasonable. Owner Mario is super friendly. If you want to stay in the hotel, their restaurant has amazing food too. I ordered the rice with seafood and hubby got beef fajitas. Both were delicious and only costed us $19.

The htel has its own hot spring nd we loved it. In my opinion it wasn't necessary to pay extra to go somewhere else fot the hot spring.

You can't go wrong ith silencio del campo.
