For those seeking an idyllic escape from the hustle and bustle of daily life, Nayara Tented Camp is the ultimate retreat. Nestled in the Arenal Volcano National Park, this luxurious campsite offers adventure, relaxation, and indulgence. The camp consists of 29 spacious tents. Moreover, with an array of activities, it promises an unforgettable experience. First, we'll provide a review of this camp. Then, we'll highlight its best features, activities, and amenities, so you can confidently plan your next getaway.


Nayara Tented Camp offers a luxurious, sustainable retreat. It sits deep in the Costa Rican rainforest. The camp also offers a unique eco-friendly retreat in one of nature's most stunning settings. It is in Costa Rica's Arenal Volcano National Park. It offers guests an unforgettable experience.

The camp is designed for guests to enjoy a luxurious and environmentally friendly escape. Moreover, the camp's beautiful and spacious tents. These are designed to reduce their environmental impact while providing guests with all the necessary amenities. Each tent has a plunge pool and an outdoor shower. It also features a large living room with breathtaking views of Arenal Volcano and the rainforest.

Besides, they use solar panels and hydroelectric plants to power the camp. The camp is also home to a variety of wildlife and plants that are protected through conservation. The property offers guided bird-watching and nature tours for guests. This helps them to discover more about local flora and fauna, volcano walks, hanging bridges, and more. Furthermore, the spa offers massages, and the restaurant serves delicious food. This upscale, family-friendly hotel also has an outdoor swimming pool, poolside bar, and fitness center.


Nayara Tented Camp is in Costa Rica's Northern Planes. It is all about serenity and laid-back luxury. Arenal is a rainforest in the northern plains of Costa Rica. It is home to the conical Arenal Volcano and the country's largest lake. However, that's not the only thing that draws travelers. The Arenal Volcano sits within the tropical rainforest of northern Costa Rica. There's also the nation's biggest lake.

Nayara Tented Camp occupies the first luxury camping site in Central America. It occupies a piece of prime land within Arenal Volcano National Park. It is also positioned on a hill. This gives a spectacular view of the Arenal Volcano. The camp is less than three hours from San Jose Airport (SJO).

Design and Style

The tents are connected by a short wooden walkway along the property's narrow, winding path. But what lies inside is far more impressive than the unassuming outside. Moreover, the tents are inspired by African lodges. As a result, they feature all of the luxurious trimmings. These include a four-poster bed with a mosquito net.

There are also day beds, outdoor showers, freestanding baths, and plunge pools. Furthermore, a glass door reveals a bedroom with sweeping views of the volcanic landscape. There is also an outdoor deck with a hammock and nooks for dining al fresco.


The third resort on the Nayara grounds is this property. It follows Nayara Gardens, and Nayara Springs, owned by Colombian Leo Ghitis. It's located at the base of the Arenal Volcano. Although each resort has a different property area, guests can move between the three. Moreover, they can enjoy the various restaurants, pools, bars, etc.

Nayara was one of Central America's first eco-resorts when it opened, and this ideal has remained constant. Nayara Tented Camp also takes this idea forward, creating a sloth sanctuary through the reforestation of hundreds of indigenous trees. This will grow along with habitats for native birds, frogs, and armadillos.


True to its name, each room is, in fact, a tent. The tents are glamorous canvas-covered multi-roomed tents. The interior is also stunning, with a state-of-the-art, sturdy design. Moreover, there are full sinks, outdoor showers, and clawfoot tubs. Then there's that terrace. This is the show-stopper. Hot spring pools surround the terraces and face the Arenal Volcano.

Besides, the sight of the Arenal volcano and a perfect day is mesmerizing. You can peel back your curtains to see the top of the mountain smoking. There are also hammocks, couches, and tables on the deck. This will make you feel like you don't want to go anywhere. The 21 tents in this resort are all elevated on stilts, surrounded by greenery for as far as you can see.


The Tented Camp is not open to exclusive dining. However, guests can access seven bars and restaurants at Nayara Gardens and Springs. Each of the five restaurants has a distinct taste and appearance. For example, Asia Luna is an eatery with a vibrant color scheme. It serves up a combination of Peruvian, Asian, and other dishes. Their ceviche, in particular, is worth trying. At the open-air La Terraza restaurant, they serve Costa Rican cuisine à-la-carte.

Besides, couples looking for a romantic escape should check out Amor Loco. This adult-only restaurant is known for its carefully curated menu. They also offer cocktails and an intimate setting with touches of Moorish architecture and purple velvet. The menu also features exotic, fresh, and local dishes. Plus, there are decadent deserts as well. Daily breakfast is also available.


Nayara's team of naturalists can help you choose the best activity to suit your needs. Whether it is for the day or at night. Your early morning session may include bird watching. During the tour of the grounds, Pablo, your guide, will take you through a nature walk. You might see parakeets and hummingbirds. And if you can't find any sloths in the trees high above, Tony, the three-toed resident sloth, is there to help.

Moreover, Mi Cafecito offers an excellent afternoon activity: a tasting of coffee. Costa Ricans are serious about their coffee, and it's not surprising: they're the world's 13th biggest producer. You can also try cold drinks. Plus, learn about the blends of beans at the espresso bar.

Explore the Arenal Volcano base, hike, or visit Lake Arenal. This is a popular place for water sports, such as windsurfing, paddle boarding, and kayaking. La Fortuna, a lively town with many bars, restaurants, and shops, is only a 10-minute drive from the property.


Nayara Tented Camp features 29 spacious private tents, each equipped with plush bedding, a private deck, and an outdoor shower overlooking the lush rainforest. Guests can immerse themselves in nature with guided hikes and horseback rides. Or, they can soak in the thermal springs or relax in the infinity pool. So, whether you're seeking adventure or a peaceful retreat, this camp provides a luxury camping experience in one of the world's most beautiful natural landscapes. You will not regret staying at Nayara Tented Camp.
