Why choose Nayara Tented Camp


Spa is tucked into pockets of the rainforest, so every massage, facial, and scrub comes with a natural soundtrack. Treatments incorporate locally grown organic coffee, chocolate, and volcanic mud.



Guests can enjoy and relax in a large family-friendly pool or they can seek out the additional plunge pools filled from mineral hot springs and surrounded by dense forest.

Nayara Dining

Nayara Dining

The Tented Camp has access to all of the restaurants of sister hotels: Nayara Springs and Nayara Gardens. They are Relais & Chateaux properties and place rich taste and authentic flavors at the heart of everything they do. The five restaurants they have are distinct in look and feel—from an intimate tapas bar to a lively outdoor terrace, to a colorful “pulperia” that serves a fusion of Asian and Peruvian dishes.

Adults Only Tastings & Experiences

Adults Only Tastings & Experiences

Enjoy in three different bars offered within the resort from Nostalgia wine bar with wine-pairing experiences, Cielito Lindo swim up bar and mixology class to Mi Cafecito Espresso bar with coffee roasting experiences.



Open-air family restaurant serves a-la-carte local and international food. With unparalleled views of the volcano from your table, you’ll enjoy delicious gourmet food and new spins on classic Costa Rican favorites.

Walking and Observation

Walking and Observation

Traverse hanging bridges and trek over dry lava fields to examine pristine rainforests. Discover waterfalls and crystal blue rivers, and soak in hot springs. Stand in the shadows of huge trees, the centuries-old guardians of the forest. Costa Rica is home to over 900 bird species, and Arenal has plenty of tanagers, hummingbirds, toucans, and oropendolas. The birds, multi-colored frogs and amphibians, volcano craters, and exotic plants all make for a unique region to explore on foot.

Sloth Sanctuary

Sloth Sanctuary

Sloths –those adorable and lethargic animals living in treetops- spend much of their lives in the canopies of the Guarumo trees, snoozing and hiding from predators. Our mission is to preserve and grow our tropical rainforest, providing a safe habitat that can support a healthy sloth population.



Calling all thrill-seekers and adrenaline junkies! Arenal is referred to as the adventure capital of Costa Rica for good reason. Experience zip lining across the top of the rainforest canopy, or rappelling down the side of Arenal’s waterfalls. Whether white-water rafting on the Sarapiqui River or hiking the Arenal Volcano, we promise you the jungle adventure of a lifetime.

Wildlife & Activities

Wildlife & Activities

Nayara grounds are bursting with wildlife. You can spot sloths and monkeys on our trails, or join a bird watching walk at dawn. After dark, you can join a frog scouting tour where you can see diminutive red-eyed tree frogs and blue-jean frogs.

Cultural Discoveries

Cultural Discoveries

Learn about coffee cultivation as you visit a plantation, and taste delicious hot chocolate freshly made with organic cacao. Discover the rainforest and the different species of plants and animals while you float along the many hectares of the jungle of the Cano Negro Wildlife Refuge. Visit The Proyecto Asis, where rescued animals are taken care of. Discover the arts and crafts of the Maleko indigenous population with an organized visit to a Maleko village.


Our collection of properties is dedicated to sustainability and responsible tourism. We're updating our website to showcase the sustainability efforts of each retreat, highlighting their initiatives in resource conservation, minimizing environmental impact, and benefiting local communities. We appreciate your patience as we work on incorporating these features. Stay tuned for these exciting updates as we strive to create a positive impact and offer you an enriching and eco-friendly experience.

Probably our best vacation EVER!

HollyDellaVedova, - December 2020

I can’t say enough about this property, the staff and the accommodations! We stayed here two years ago in the garden section and fell in love with it! Now we are here in their new development, the tented camps. Pictures and video do no justice. It’s one of these places you have to see it to believe it. It’s that good! Every single detail has been blowing our minds! Everyone is so friendly, even the grounds keepers. They all stop and say hello. Not only that, it is extremely safe during these Cov...

Nayara at its best

Joachim S, United States - December 2020

The Nayara Tented Camp is the highest category of the the Nayara resort (the others are Nayara Gardens and Nayara Springs). It is by far the best option with an outstanding view on the volcano and a perfect setting nestled in the topical garden that Nayara is famous for. We had been to the resort 10 years ago when it opened and met with the architect Angelo Zaragovia and the manager Jairo Quesada, the latter who is still with the resort today! Needless to say that everything from the facilities,...

Luxurious Rainforest Oasis

Adine M, - January 2021

Wow, such an absolutely stunning place! The Nayara tented camps are truly luxurious villas (with a private thermal infinity pool!) nestled in a lush rainforest. It honestly is a "must stay" in Costa Rica! The staff is exceptional, and went above and beyond to make us happy. They know the area very well, and helped us craft an excellent itinerary for our stay (including for our meals, hikes and other activities). We were a bit concerned travelling to a hotel during COVID, but Nayara is incredibl...
