Management Transition at Arenas del Mar Beachfront & Rainforest Resort in Manuel Antonio, Costa Rica

After more than 6 years as General Manager at Arenas del Mar and 8 years managing Hotels for the Cayuga Collection of Sustainable Luxury Hotels and Lodges in Costa Rica, Fabian Palma has decided to take a break from the hotel industry and dedicate some time to personal projects and dreams.   Fabian opened the hotel in 2007 and was instrumental in its success as the first hotel in Costa Rica to receive Five Sustainability Leaves AND Five Quality Stars.   Thank you Fabian for an incredible job and good luck with your projects!!!

The new General Manager is Jorge Arrieta.   He has been with Cayuga since 2002 where he was the General Manager of Lapa Rios Ecolodge in the Osa Peninsula before becoming the Director of Operations at Cayuga Collection overseeing the management of its 9 hotels and lodges.   He is excited to go back to hotel operations and take over Arenas del Mar in order to further develop that perfect symbiosis of Luxury and Sustainability.   He has been involved in the hotel since its opening and knows the staff and the operation very well, so that we expect this to be a very smooth transition.   Jorge can be contacted at
