The deal: Imagine waking up in your hotel room, opening the curtains, and gazing in disbelief at the larger-than-life volcano before you. No splash of cold water needed to wake you from your dream here, in Costa Rica, this is reality.
The Lost Iguana Resort & Spa, which is inconspicuously tucked away in the dense rainforest at the base of Arenal Volcano, is flaunting a wallet-pleasing Pura Vida Package that includes a seven-night stay on the property, as well as daily breakfast, lunch, and dinner.
Priced from $1,990 per couple and valid April 20 through November 15, the deal represents a savings of over 35 percent from standard rack rates ($3,125), and is crammed with added incentives.
Other extras further sweetening the pot are:
• $1,000 spa credits, redeemable at the resort’s Golden Gecko Spa
(services start at just $45)
• Guided hike on Arenal Volcano or nature trails (valued upwards of $90)
• An evening at Eco Themales Hot Springs (worth $40)
About the resort: Built into the mountainside of Costa Rica’s fertile jungle, the boutique, 42-room Lost Iguana Resort & Spa offers guests panoramic views of the monstrous volcano and close-up encounters with some truly exotic animals.
In terms of amenities, the resort offers guests complimentary wireless Internet access, has two pools (one with a swim-up bar), a restaurant, spa, and fitness center.
