Welcome to Hotel La Garza - Comfortable, Natural, Simple..... located just twenty minutes from La Fortuna, gateway to the Arenal Volcano area.

What began as a weekend retreat for the city friends of the colonial founders of La Garza has evolved into a small, intimate hotel for discerning travelers.


Like the farm's founders, you can still awaken to the sounds of the birds and monkeys dwelling on the river bank in front of your room. You can still watch the sunrise hitting the awe inspiring cone of the Arenal Volcano and you can still cross a swinging bridge to reach the ranch house to eat breakfast in a casona (main farm house) built 100 years ago.


It's nearly impossible to enter the forest without seeing the wildlife, literally leaping from tree to tree overhead. Standing beneath the magnificent strangler fig (it was an adult tree when Columbus arrived in Costa Rica), you start to realize the meaning of the word "timeless".


The modern, clean, thoughtfully designed guest bungalows have replaced the older main house rooms. The river out front invites you outside, to walk alongside its banks and contemplate on the sheer natural beauty surrounding you.


The beds are comfortable and the hammocks on the individual verandas lets you relax and watch the river for wildlife. Fall asleep at night with the sounds of frogs on the Platanar River running behind the bungalows.


The spacious guest bungalows reflect the ambiance of a former era, when all the "best" homes had smooth, shining hardwood floors, wood-lined interiors and high ceilings, huge showers and simple but comfortable furnishings.
