Arenas del Mar
Manuel Antonio, Costa Rica
Set on the sun-soaked Pacific coast of Costa Rica within 11 acres of private rainforest nature preserve acting as a wildlife corridor and boasting two kilometers of shoreline, Arenas del Mar and its 37 suites welcome travelers into a world of beachfront and ocean exploration, nature walks and rainforest hikes, native flora and fauna at your doorstep, and premiere accommodations staffed by people from the local community.
At Arenas del Mar guests can both relax or adventure at this beachfront paradise offering two beaches and two pools, oceanfront meals of resort-grown produce, four on-site Naturalist Guides prepared to help you spot wildlife and provide walking tours of the property, and a world-class spa and relaxation center.

When it comes to travel as a force for good, Arenas del Mar is a true paradigm of the Beyond Green promise, with sustainability, the environment, community, and devoted hospitality at the forefront of everything it does. From the initial design of the buildings, which placed a special emphasis on the preservation of as many rainforest trees as possible – and which you can see in the how the architecture physically incorporated some trees into the buildings’ eaves – to everyday sustainability in action such as not having single-use plastic, solar water heaters, and a hydroponic garden, and the support of a local school, Arenas del Mar proudly makes a positive impact in a myriad of ways.
