Beach Eats, Cocktails,
& Your Toes in the Sand

Arenas Del Mar Beach & Rainforest Resort

Feel free to sink your toes into the sand and watch the monkeys swing gleefully overhead.

Your Table is Literally on the Beach

“Playitas Restaurant was my favorite. Your table is literally on the beach and surrounded by beautiful trees and animals. My son especially liked the hermit crabs that came out at supper. Food was outstanding! Everything here is made with organic and local ingredients.”
