Tabacon Resort & Spa - Tabacon Resort & Spa is one of the more famous hotels in Costa Rica. It can be a great match for families looking for a great pool area with a slide for the kids. It can be a crowded area and is not for everyone. But it boasts the most unique set of hot springs pools.
Other Options Arenal:
Cuna del Angel - Another perfect location is the Cuna del Angel Hotel which is a very small hotel on the Pacific Coast just south of Dominical. Here you will be surrounded by the jungle with views of the Pacific Ocean. The rooms of Cuna del Angel are luxurious with all the finest amenities. One thing that seperates this hotel apart from others is the food! An amazing chef offers you some of the finest meals in all of Costa Rica.
Other Options Dominical:
Villa Blanca Hotel - A very isolated hotel this is the former weekend home of an Ex-President of Costa Rica. The Villa Blanca Hotel sits alone in the clouds on a large plantation piece of property where the jungle is returning to its natural habitat and the native species of the cloud-forest can be found all around. The weather is cool and the vibe is very romantic as you can sit up in the clouds and have startling views of all of Costa Rica while sitting at the fire place. The rooms are all private bungalows that extend out with a balcony that give you views into the cloud-forest.
With a country full of amazing people, a landscape that day after day just blows your mind, and some of the best rivers on the planet, I decided to call Costa Rica home. I made my early career whitewater rafting on the Pacuare River and working as an adventure guide for different companies. With this said, the goal of starting Costa Rican Resource was to get people out into nature to realizing that each and every human on the planet is a part of our natural world.
