Wildlife & Nature

Arena Alta is situated within a thriving jungle habitat. All four different species of monkeys inhabit the canopy, and vibrant flora and fauna can be found nearly everywhere you look. Sloths can often be seen hanging out in almond trees, and the air is filled with the sounds of green parrots, macaws, and toucans.

World-Class Surfing

Arena Alta is just 250 steps to the gorgeous beaches and super consistent beach break of Zancudo. Zancudo boasts a sand bottom with nice open faces; both left and rights. It can get hollow on the right conditions. The spot is best surfed at low and high tides with nice swells coming from the south and southwest.


Of course, you have one of the longest left points in the world, Pavones, just a short drive away. Surfers travel from around the world just to surf this epic point break. There is another point break that rivals Pavones just down the beach from Arena Alta.

World-Class Fishing

Arena Alta is located next to some of the most productive sport fishing grounds in the world. Many different species of fish can be caught from the beach including Roosterfish, Jack Crevalle, Kubera Snapper, and Spanish Mackerel. Kayak and boat fishing can also be productive, with Yellowfin Tuna, Sailfish, Mahi, and Marlin farther offshore. The town of Zancudo is also home to the world-renown Zancudo Lodge. More than 70 IGFA World Records have been set by boats fishing out of the lodge.
