Two thirds of the hotel’s beautiful three and a half hectare (nine acres) property is composed of pristine cloud forest including a stream, waterfall and pond. Our forest is home to many endangered species and was included in 2011 in the National Network of Private Preserves. It is also a part of the Bellbird Biological Corridor, a natural corridor to afor the communication of the lowland forests with the temperate cloud forest. The hotel has a short self-guided trail for guests to explore.
Around the two Chalets that compose the hotel you will also find naturally landscaped gardens with luscious native plants, a vegetable and herb garden and a beautiful swan lake with a sun deck. Immersed in the Cloud Forest but with open views of the Pacific Ocean in the horizon, the Hotel Belmar is located in a truly privileged property.
Aside from the private trail in the hotel’s preserve, our property is located in the entranceway of a few other trails. The most notable of these being Cerro Amigos, which is the highest mountain in the entire region. On clear days you can see the Pacific, the Arenal Volcano and even sometimes glimpses of the Atlantic Ocean.
These are some of the species we have spotted in our property:
