My husband and I recently stayed at Jardines Arenal Lodge as a part of an excursion to the area. We did not know what to expect and were absolutely delighted with our stay.

The owner of this hostel, Herman was a super friendly Tico. He helped us plan the guides that we wanted to do during our stay in Arenal. He went as much as calling up all the booking companies to confirm our reservation for a canopy tour. He also saved us 10$ because we were able to get a student discount...
