If you plan to stay that is not far from the middle of San Carlos, the Chachagua Rainforest Hotel & Hacienda could be an excellent hotel.

The Springs Resort and Spa at Arenal is positioned 10 miles away from the center of San Carlos. Another hotel is the Nayara Hotel Spa & Gardens, which is situated 10 miles away. Alternative accommodation options include the Arenal Kioro Suites & Spa and the Tabacon Grand Spa Thermal Resort.

If you have the time, why not broaden your horizons and enjoy the other sites dotted around Northern Plains while you are in the region? Nature lovers will love Northern Plains's forests and lakes. You should also head to the region's traditional villages. Active visitors can enjoy hiking and shore fishing in this part of Costa Rica.

Looking for more to do? Why not spend some time visiting Baldi Hot Springs, La Fortuna Waterfall and Los Lagos Hot Springs, which you'll find in La Fortuna, 6 miles to the east of San Carlos. Some of our recommended La Fortuna hotels are the Baldi Hot Springs Hotel and Spa and The Royal Corin Thermal Water Spa & Resort. Or, you could stay in El Castillo, 14 miles to the east of San Carlos, where you'll find the Arenal Vista Lodge and Hotel Castillo del Arenal. The Butterfly Conservatory and Costa Rica Sky Adventures are just some of the more popular points of interest to check out while in El Castillo.

Before your San Carlos trip comes to an end, why not spend an hour or two cheering along with fellow sports fans at a local game. You'll find Saprissa Stadium 45 miles to the northwest of San Carlos. Those sports fans wishing to find a bed close to the action can choose from the Hotel Grano de Oro or the Crowne Plaza San Jose Corobici.

For travelers planning on arriving via Juan Santamaria International Airport, you may plan to book accommodation at Costa Rica Marriott Hotel San Jose, or Hampton Inn and Suites San Jose Airport, both of which are close by.
