Enjoy the next few days at your own leisure. From visiting the hotel's very own horses, revelling in the beauty of the butterfly garden that's perfect for the kids, taking a light trek into the cloud forest, or having a splash in the swimming pool, there are activities in abundance for you and the kids to take advantage of. You can spend quality family time together on a local boat or organic coffee tour.
Wildlife + General Tour + Beach
After an invigorating few days spent in the Central Valley, you’ll move onto your next adventure in Manuel Antonio. You’ll be staying in a calming Ocean View Suite, overlooking the bluest waters of the Pacific Ocean. In a world where luxury meets nature, you’ll have the most spectacular of views at the tropical resort of Hotel Arenas del Mar Beach & Nature Resort. Whether you splash around in the refreshing hotel pools, enjoy a spot of surfing or indulge in some extra special ‘you time’ in the relaxing hammam, there really is something for everyone. Offering a delicious kids' menu in both restaurants, babysitting and childcare services as well as board games and boogie boards, Arenas del Mar is the perfect place for you and the children to enjoy a few days of adventure and fun.
Once you’ve indulged in some of the finest activities your hotel has to offer, branch out into the surrounding rainforest that is Manuel Antonio National Park. You’ll step foot onto a half-day private tour of this protected nature reserve. Let your naturalist guide open your eager eyes to the native wildlife, from sloths and monkeys to hundreds of different bird species.
Spend the next four days of this once in a lifetime trip at your own leisure. Manuel Antonio National Park contains three beautiful beaches, so it’s a perfect excuse to catch some rays or take in a brightly-coloured sunset.
On the days where you feel like a little more adventure, why not explore the crystal clear waters on a snorkelling quest, boat excursion, or horseback riding trip? To further regale in the splendour of the National Park, take the family out on a relaxing rainforest hike. Whilst out exploring the rugged trails of the tropical jungle, you’ll be creating memories to take back home with you on the very last day of this breathtaking trip.
