Hilton Papagayo Costa Rica Resort & Spa
Hilton Papagayo Costa Rica Resort & Spa overlooks the Gulf of Papagayo in northern Costa Rica, and it looks beyond to a seemingly endless stretch of sparkling blue ocean. You can soak up the view from the resort’s sandy beachfront or its three-tiered infinity pool, which is ringed by tropical gardens and a thatched swim-up bar. You can also borrow a kayak or snorkeling gear for free to explore the warm waters of the surrounding bay. There’s no shortage of things to do at Hilton Papagayo, in fact—you can also feel free to play a game of beach volleyball or dance all night to the beat of live music.
There’s no shortage of food and drink, either. All meals and alcoholic beverages are included at a number of onsite restaurants and bars. Feast on a la carte Costa Rican or Italian specialties in the resort’s reservation-only restaurants, or try a little bit of everything at La Cosecha’s breakfast, lunch, and dinner buffets. A thatched, open-air bar serves local and imported cocktails and beers until 1 a.m. daily.
At the end of the day, retire to your gardenview bungalow, where you can relax on a private balcony set with teak furniture.
Guanacaste, Costa Rica: Forested Mountains and Legendary Surfing Beaches
The province of Guanacaste in northwestern Costa Rica takes its name from the Guanacaste tree, an umbrella-shaped species also known, less picturesquely, as the earpod tree. These trees blanket the slopes of the Guanacaste and Tilaran Mountains, helping to shelter the coastline from rainstorms and keep the beaches warm and dry.
Stick to the shore of bustling Playas del Coco and you’ll find plenty of waterfront activities as well as lively nightlife. But it’s worth heading farther afield to take in some of the province’s national parks. Starting in October, Marino las Baulas National Park serves as a major nesting ground for leatherback turtles. And in the north, Santa Rosa National Park is known for its legendary surf breaks, including one featured in the documentary The Endless Summer II.
