Arco Iris Lodge

50 m south of Banco Nacional, Santa Elena, Puntarenas, 60109, Costa Rica

You're almost in the center of town, but you'd never know it at this tranquil spot set on 4 acres of birding trails where cozy cabins range from rustic to plush and come with porches. You need not be a honeymooner to stay in the sumptuous three-level honeymoon cabin, secluded off on a corner of the property, with private patio, whirlpool tub, flat-screen TV, and DVD player. Budget travelers may wish to opt for a bunk-bed room, which costs half the price of standards. Wherever you stay, start your day with a delicious breakfast buffet (extra), including homemade bread and granola. The laid-back German management can provide good advice about how to spend your time in the area. If you're planning to stay awhile, consider their vacation rental 3 km (2 miles) from Santa Elena. It sleeps eight and is on the farm that supplies eggs and produce for the hotel breakfast.
