We left the Agua Inn not long ago, and already miss it so much. Whenever my husband and I travel, especially to Costa Rica, we seek out interesting new places to stay. The Agua Inn did NOT disappoint! The location is right off the main highway, 5 minutes from Nuevo Arsenal. That being said, you arrive at the actual lodging...

The Agua Inn is situated a very short drive away from the town with a good choice of restaurants. The Inn itself is in a beautiful setting with it's own small swimming pool in it's own mini cloud forest, perfect for relaxing. The rooms are a good size, clean and comfortable. Breakfast was fresh fruit followed by eggs cooked in...

The Agua Inn is a well appointed b&b near Arenal and about an hour from the Volcano and its attractions. Breakfast is plentiful and the rooms although quite small are perfectly adequate. What impressed me the most was the kindness of the owner Trent. I had brought with me a dose of English flu that manifested on the first night...

Agua Inn is simply the best place you could stay in Nuevo Arenal! The hotel features a river going around the building and its sound is the most relaxing thing ever. Breakfast is also lovely and the owners are really nice and up for a chat in case u need tips 😊 We are definitely coming back! Terry&Keith

Agua Inn is a secluded retreat located right next to a rushing river. The owner is an expat from California who was welcoming, friendly, and helpful while offering space and privacy. The breakfast was delicious and filling while accommodating our vegan diet. The fact that we are a queer couple posed no issue at all. Note: when driving from La...

This is a brilliant location with a very strong Costa Rican rainforest vibe. It was very easy to find and was incredibly relaxing and easy going. The host was very friendly and offered a great option for dinner. Sleeping accommodation was very nice, you could hear the flowing river nearby. Bathroom wash very nice as well, with hot water and...

Had an extra night on the way to La Fortuna, wasn't expecting much here, but, was pleasantly surprised by Aqua Inn. Coming from Canas, take a right downhill after the Inn sign. More visible is the sign for the owner's architecture business...our gps told us to go right past the turnoff...so, keep a sharp eye. We were met at the...
