Costa Rica's central Pacific coast attracts the majority the country's tourism, and for good reason. Pristine beaches, national parks with incredible biodiversity, and world-class surfing share a relatively small piece of the map. About 6 miles (10 km) south of the hotel, the town of Jaco buzzes with backpackers and locals alike who haunt its beachside restaurants and nightclubs between heavy surf and sun sessions. A few more miles down the coast, Playa Hermosa's black sands afford a unique photo op, and about 25 miles (40 km) south of the resort, the largely deserted beaches of Playa Esterillos Oeste give intrepid travelers a place to consider the top five albums they couldn't live without. Immediately northeast of Hotel Punta Leona, Carara National Park sprawls across 14 square miles (36 sq. km) of protected forest, cut through with hiking trails along the banks of the Rio Tarcoles, where crocodiles are often spotted sunning.Read the Fine Print for important info on travel dates and other restrictions.
Sheltered from the outside world by the rock walls of a secluded valley, Maui Hawaiian Village preserves ancient cultural traditions by living them. It takes a drive and a short hike to reach the village itself, which provides a glimpse into the the history of island life. Guests have the opportunity to watch reenactors go about daily chores?using wauke bark to make clothing, constructing shelters, and roasting food in a traditional underground oven?and learn about the uses and cultural significance of native plants naturally growing nearby. Hands-on activities allow visitors to personally experience the lifestyle. Groups can smash taro for preparing poi, participate in traditional games and recreational activities, and even sample small bites of freshly picked food from the land.
