The Experience

Looking for the perfect luxury retreat in Costa Rica? Look no further than the beautiful Four Seasons Resort Costa Rica at Peninsula Papagayo. The resort is located on the northwest Pacific Coast and is just 30 minutes from the international airport, making it a great option for families that need a quick getaway. But once you arrive, we promise you may never want to leave!

Whether you’re staying for three nights or thirteen, you won’t find more comfortable rooms in Costa Rica. The 146 rooms and suites were recently renovated, tastefully incorporating indigenous art, local wood, and rich natural elements. Spacious private terraces overlook the rainforest or the bay, complete with comfy seating that’s absolutely perfect for watching the sunrise with a cup of coffee. Traveling with a larger family or friends? Ask us about the Prieta Bay Residences, offering a home-away-from-home with full kitchens and private pools.

Costa Rica is a great destination to combine beach bum relaxation and outdoor adventure, and the Four Seasons is no exception. The resort offers a variety of daily activities (many complimentary!) ranging from paddle boarding and kayaking to chocolate rum tasting and mixology classes. Relax in one of the three swimming pools or enjoy time down at the beach. Golfers absolutely love the 18-hole par-72 championship Arnold Palmer golf course, but trust us – everyone will want to check it out! The Four Seasons Costa Rica staff lead quick nature trips through the course in the evenings by golf cart, when you’re most likely to see wildlife like monkeys roaming around. Whatever you choose to do, you’ll be living the “pura vida” lifestyle!

Good to know: While the resort is very family-friendly, some of the rooms feature cliffside pools or walkways. Your River Oaks Travel Concierge can help you pick the perfect category for your family.

We also recommend visiting the serene spa for a treatment (we recommend the traditional hammam ritual!). While you’re there, take advantage of some of the fitness classes. Morning yoga overlooking the bay is perfect for centering yourself, or schedule a one-on-one ayurvedic session with a wellness ambassador to identify your primal nature.

Of course, somewhere between your adventuring and relaxing you’ll need to eat. At the Four Seasons Costa Rica, you have the choice of four different restaurants that all feature world-class locally-sourced organic cuisine. Anejo is our favorite – Latin-style tapas, great cocktails, and fun music turn the restaurant into a lively hot spot in the evenings. For an elegant evening, dine at Pesce with their classic Italian cuisine, featuring local seafood, pastas and an extensive wine list (plus great views of the ocean!). Families in particular will love the all-day casual dining at Pesce, or venture down to the golf course for the creative cuisine at Nemare.

We highly recommend doing a rum tasting during your stay! You’ll have the opportunity to taste incredible Latin American rums and try your hand at mixing and infusing your own blend.
