Spilling down a coastal hillside to an isthmus of golden sand on the tip of exclusive Peninsula Papagayo, Four Seasons Costa Rica boasts two unspoiled beaches and easy access to all the magic of the tropical flora and fauna that make the country so exotic.
Guests can enjoy breathtaking fairways at the Arnold Palmer Signature Golf Course, or calm the senses with a rainforest massage at the spa. Three pools and a whirlpool grotto, all surrounded by lush landscaping and spacious decks, beckon guests to re- lax and unwind. For memories to last a lifetime, guests can volunteer for Growing Together/Creciendo Juntos, which supports local schools and preserves the environment.
