At the shore of the pacific ocean and the foot of the tropical rainforest, Arenas Del Mar offers some magnificent tours for each guest to get an authentic, adventuresome and impressive sample of Costa Rica and her natural wonders.
With tours to cater to everyone, from the nature enthusiasts and aspiring chefs to the birders and environmentalists, we can’t emphasize enough how much there is to do here!
Here are a few of our favorite tours:
Our hydroponic garden where we grow some of our ingredients!
Easy Being Green
Duration: 1.5 Hours
This tour is great to squeeze into an afternoon of suntanning, reading, swimming and relaxing at the resort, taking you around the property and giving you the low down on how we run this awesome eco-friendly hotel. From our native plant nursery and hydroponic vegetable gardens to the water saving systems in place, we are working towards a greener world each day, being an industry leader in developing sustainable travel.
Making tortillas from scratch
Duration: 1.5 Hours
Returning home from your travels with a key chain that says “Costa Rica” or “Amanda” is fun, but very conventional… Instead, return home with a new understanding of traditional Costa Rican cuisine, and the know-how to make tortillas from scratch at home! We offer this tour because it is a beautiful way to teach visitors about our culture, our history and our food.
Night Walk Nature Reserve
Location: Off-Property (10 Minutes Away)
Duration: 2.5 Hours
Walk through the jungle with a guided tour, under the cover of darkness, and bear witness to the exciting nocturnal life. You will see frogs, snakes, spiders, opossums and owls, among many more creatures, and your guide will be able to tell you about each of them and how they fit into the jungle ecosystem. So, this is your chance to see all those animals that make the rainforest a bustling spot, even in the wee hours of the night, while you’re asleep and cozy in your bed!
Location: Off-Property (15 Minutes Away)
Duration: 3 Hours
A trip to Costa Rica is definitely not complete without a little ride on the salty and refreshing waves! Not only is it an awesome way to get some exercise, but it allows you to see the country from a new perspective and uncovers the way of life that we so cherish here, Pura Vida. Plus, you can get a good, even tan while you’re at it. We encourage all skill levels and ages to try it, and with many beaches of varying intensity, there is a great spot for each surfer.
Damas Island Mangrove
Location: Off-Property (30 Minutes Away)
Duration: Half Day
Kayak or boat through one of the most important ecosystems in the world, the Mangrove Forest. Learn about the extraordinary and complex means by which a habitat achieves balance, as well as the efforts by many to maintain that balance in this exceptional ecosystem. This protected inland waterway lives up to all the tales of adventure, with wildlife sightings all along the way.
