Arenal Volcano Hotels on Vacation
When you are on vacation there are a few very important things. The hotel you stay in is always up there. In Costa Rica the Arenal volcano is an area that is general peace and quite and nature all around. If you stay in the town of La Fortuna you will probably hear the tour buses driving by at 5am. Our company has found a hotel that works very well with our student groups and family vacations.
The name of the hotel is called Casa Luna Lodge. This is located just outside of the town of La Fortuna on the road that goes near La Fortuan falls which is a must do in the area. I like this place for student travel trips because it is small the check-in is easy and they have great meal packages. Also being not near the center of town does not offer the kids too many options of getting in trouble at night except for your normal complaint of being too loud in the pool which I can deal with. For a family vacation it works well because it is a very nice place at an offordable budget. The rooms have excellent balconys with views of the volcano, a fancy place to eat, and rooms that can fit a family of four.
When looking for a place to stay in the Arenal volcano area depending on how much money you want to spend my opinion would be to always try and be in a quiet area (better chances of hearing the eruptions), a place that has a view of the volcano, and a place that is not very large. Remember Arenal is one of the most popular places in all the country and when big tour groups roll in a big hotel can get pretty crowded.
