The beachfront hotel Arenas del Mar is set within 11 acres of the nature reserve and covers less than 25% of the area. The remaining 75% acts as a biological corridor for wildlife, connecting the areas surrounding Manuel Antonio National Park. From its foundation, the hotel has a strong commitment to the environment, which is why it has planted 7,000 native trees and thousands of endemic plants to reforest the area. Furthermore, with the aid of guest donations, Arenas del Mar contributes to the efforts of the Titi Conservation Alliance.
At beachfront hotel Arenas del Mar, the staff is hired year long and is exclusively from Costa Rica and predominantly from the local area. As well, the hotel supports local farmers and food vendors while also giving back to the community by preparing and distributing meals for homeless people in the area. In addition, it works to support Sabalo School with two different programs: the first provides the necessary infrastructure and provides essential classroom supplies. In contrast, the second concentrates on education programs that teach young students about the importance of environmental stewardship.
Almost all the food consumed at Arenas del Mar comes from local vendors or the hydroponic vegetable garden onsite. To ensure this, they work closely with local suppliers to ensure that every product is organic, that every chicken is hormone-free, and that every cow is grass-fed.
