Set in Costa Rica’s Arenal Volcano National Park, Nayara Tented Camp is one of the only luxury tented camps in Central America and the sister property to the nearby Nayara Springs. The immediate proximity to the surrounding rainforest and impressive views of the volcano make a stay here a one-of-a-kind experience.

There are a total of 18 luxuriously appointed tents (with a total of 29 complete by the end of 2020) within the camp, each blending harmoniously with nature. The camp is also designed with families in mind, with an en-suite master bedroom and the possibility to set up two single beds in the lounge space. 12 of the tents are also linked together with a covered walkway to accommodate two couples or a family of up to four children. Couples meanwhile, can experience utter privacy in standalone tents.

Every tent is air-conditioned, fitted with a decadent, over-sized tub and an indulgent four-poster bed. One of the greatest highlights is that each tent comes with a private plunge pool, with water fed from natural mineral hot springs. As if this wasn’t enough, each private tent is set high on a hill, offering uninterrupted views of the mighty Arenal Volcano.

The wider resort has plenty to do, with a swim-up bar, a welcome tent and a large family-friendly pool. The on-site, gourmet restaurant treats guests to a wide variety of local delicacies for breakfast and dinner. You can admire the breathtaking forest view from the terrace, or seek out the additional plunge pools, which are surrounded by dense forest and fed by the same mineral hot springs. For activities, guests can fill their day with whitewater rafting, canyoning, ziplining, canopy tours, volcano hikes or just spot the local sloths that call this area home.
