OUR HISTORY

Know more about us

Montaña de Fuego is a Mountain Resort for visitors who wants to connect with nature, relax and refresh energies

Since 1995, a time when the Arenal Volcano was unknown and the only visitors were backpacking explorers, the Villegas family found in tourism a great way to get ahead. In order to provide a more comfortable space for visitors who came to request where to camp on property, the local family owners decided to devote their effort to the tourism business and they invested in the first wooden bungalows. Later on, the hotel grew in stages and other social spaces were built, such as the swimming pool, the restaurant and the Spa, which complemented the experience of the guests very well. Without any doubt, the family have dedicated themselves to work with passion to fill visitors with the light of hospitality, providing genuine experiences and creating a positive impact on the community and the environment.

Whether a Suite for a night, a bungalow for more days or just visiting the property in one day trip, Montaña de Fuego connects the guest to unique natural experiences. With world-class customer service we work with passion to fill the life of our visitors with the light of the hospitality by providing genuine experiences and creating positive impact in our Community and environment.
