What to do at Nayara Tented Camp?

Cross ravines on swaying suspension bridges, while spider monkeys leap between treetops overhead. Spot armadillos, wild boars and dozing fruit bats as you hike over dry lava fields. Enjoy a picnic, enveloped in green and soundtracked by the buzzing, chirping and howling of the jungle and its inhabitants. Descend canyons to reach spectacular waterfalls and plunge into the clear, pure water. 

Beyond the jungle, there’s the opportunity to learn about coffee cultivation, visit The Proyecto Asis or visit Maleko village, where you can learn about the Maleko Indigenous population.

After a day of exploration, the tents’ private thermal-fed pools are the perfect spot to unwind, while gazing across to peak of Arenal Volcano with a margarita in hand.

Across the sprawling property, there’s an incredible selection of restaurants, including an intimate tapas bar, a northern Italian bistro and an al-fresco international restaurant with nightly live music. Each spot uses local ingredients and seasonal produce to create dishes with sophisticated and delicious flavours.
