Lost Iguana Resort & Spa
Arenal Volcano, Costa Rica
This wonderful resort is like an oasis in the middle of nowhere. While the rooms are not luxurious, they are very comfortable and private, and feature balconies with fantastic views of Arenal Volcano (assuming clear weather). You can even keep your drapes open at night and watch the volcano from your bed! An open-air restaurant serves delicious meals (try the ceviche and tilapia dishes) and the free Wi-Fi and computers in the lobby are a plus. There is also a spectacular double pool with swim-up bar, and if you have some extra time, treat yourself to a soothing spa treatment.
