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.
The name Maui conjures up images of people lounging on sun-soaked beaches, surfing monster waves, and snorkeling through pristine blue waters. But the island is also full of many secluded spots that have been untouched by the modern world. Maui Hawaiian Village lets visitors step back in time and discover one such pristine, remote location and get a glimpse into native Hawaiian life.
It takes a drive and a short hike to reach the village itself, where an active restoration of a historical valley is in progress. Surrounded by a lush forest, majestic mountains, ancient rock walls, waterways, and Hawaiian agriculture, visitors learn about the island's culture and participate in hands-on activities. These activities allow visitors to personally experience the Hawaiian lifestyle and introduce them to plants native Hawaiians have used for food, shelter, and clothing. Groups can even sample small bites of freshly picked food from the land while reflecting on how Hawaiians have thrived for generations on nature's bounty.
