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 sunlight bathed, palm-fortified fairways of the beautifully landscaped Kaanapali Golf Course wend around the slatted windows of Paradise Grill, filling each portal with greenery backed by sunsets and rolling ocean. It's a stunning venue in which to enjoy some casual island culture. A high-vaulted diagonal ceiling stretches overhead, lending the eatery a modern feel. The first-floor bar boasts 11 flat-screen TVs and a quieter, second-floor dining room is where guests slice into ocean-fresh fish or pull gooey slices of handmade Round Table pizzas. The chefs whip up breakfast, lunch, dinner, and late-night meals affectionately called Buenas Noshes.
