Arenal National Park, Costa Rica
This laidback rainforest retreat is legendary "Pura Vida" at its best and offers a magical exerience. Immersed among lush tropical gardens of heliconia and bougainvillea, it's laced by quiet paths leading past ponds of colorful koi. Enjoy a soak in one of the seven mineral hot-springs pools (fed straight from Arenal Volcano), take a dip in the swimming pool with its swim-up bar, a perfect place to sip a sundowner, or opt for a relaxing treatment at the award-winning spa. Choose between a freestanding casita, with its sweeping view of the volcano or jungle canopy and a garden with an outdoor shower, or opt for a secluded (and romantic!) Rainforest Pool Villa or Springs Villa.
