About the hotel

Within a botanical garden, amid a profusion of lush tropical plants and a dazzling array of rare palms, Hotel Villa Decary Bed and Breakfast is a longstanding favorite of bird-watchers and naturalists. The hotel, nestled in a verdant hillside, directly overlooking beautiful Lake Arenal and the stunning Tilaran mountains beyond, is perfectly located along what is considered to be one of the most picturesque drives in Costa Rica, stretching from nearby Nuevo Arenal, a charming little Tico town, to the spectacular Arenal Volcano, a safe 14 miles away.

Boasting a babbling brook and private nature trail through virgin rainforest, Villa Decary abounds with the sights and sounds of nature. Butterflies, hummingbirds, toucans, parrots and over 150 species of birds are regularly sighted. Chirping frogs and howling monkeys often accompany the songs of the birds with an exotic jungle symphony.

Villa Decary offers five affordable hotel guestrooms with balconies and three bungalows with kitchens and private decks. Rated #1 B&B in TripAdvisor, the well appointed and comfortable accomodations have U.S. style bathrooms with plentiful hot water.

The knowledgeable Villa Decary staff is always ready to advise you about planning your vacation. They are happy to arrange activities, tours and transportation including rental cars. An on-site indigenous naturalist is available for nature walks and tours. Gourmet breakfasts are served and many fine eateries are available for dining nearby
