First time in Costa Rica and Arenas Del Mar made for a fabulous hotel stay. Everything was very clean and although it took a while to get acclimated to the tropical weather, the air conditioning in the rooms made it easy to sleep. The best part was the private beach where you can lay on a shady hammock or couch-bed right In front of the waves. The attentative staff will also bring you drinks and food right to you on the beach. The area is in th mountains and hilly so they drive you around in golf cart size electric cars in case you aren't up for the walk. Another hightlight was the naturalist guide, Ersel. He was really good at spotting the animals and like most of the staff nice to talk to and eager to help tourists understand the ways of Costa Rica. Amazing place I highly recommend.
