Hotel Villa Decary in Nuevo Arenal

Villa Decary is about 45 minutes from La Fortuna Costa Rica and just a mile or so from Nuevo Arenal. One of the views from Villa Decary of Lake Arenal.

Villa Decary describes itself as a country inn but it also has a bed & breakfast feel to it as well. It overlooks Lake Arenal and sits on a beautiful piece of property complete with primary rain forest, howler monkey's and about a zillion different types of birds. Villa Decary is the perfect setting to experience what Costa Rica really is all about.

As I mentioned, Villa Decary is about 45 minutes from La Fortuna and many people who stay there venture into Fortuna after breakfast, take in an adventure tour or volcano hike and head back to the hotel around dinner time. That's not to say there isn't plenty of things to do around the Nuevo Arenal area. HELLO... the lake is just outside the door. So, if you like the water, there's plenty of activities to do such as boating, fishing, boogie boarding, wind surfing (Lake Arenal is world renowned for its wind surfing)kayaking etc. There's also hiking and horseback riding in the area.

And you wouldn't want to miss eating at one of the BEST restaurants in all of Costa Rica, The Gingerbread, which is only about a 4-minute walk from Villa Decary. Really, the best food we've ever had since living in Costa Rica.

People that stay at Villa Decary are the type of people who want to fall asleep with nature and not Jay Leno. And really, that's what Costa Rica is all about.
