Proof you’re in paradise: 16 airy villas, set along a jungle-swathed ravine, fitted with Venetian mirrors, hand-loomed rugs, and greenstone-lined plunge pools filled with mineral-rich spring waters, courtesy of the adjacent Arenal Volcano. Ask your personal host to arrange a tour with one of the expert local guides, who will lead you to spot howler monkeys, metallic blue morpho butterflies, and mimosa plants that snap shut when touched. $$$$
