Costa Rica and Belize
Westin Playa Conchal
The Westin offers beautiful beaches that stretch for miles, crystal blue waters and villas offering large porches or balconies. Relax in the beautiful pool, enjoy a bicycle ride around the beautiful grounds, expand your horizons by learning Spanish, tasting a variety of tequilas, or learning how to make sushi. The Paradisus also boasts a casino on property, a complimentary sunset cruise, kayaks, snorkeling and a golf course on the grounds. The restaurants serve up a variety of ethnic dishes and room service is complimentary. Need I say more - there's an adults-only section giving adults a private pool with swim-up bar and an additional restauraunt to choose from.
The Riu Guanacaste was built in 2009 and features the beautiful common areas found at all Riu properties. The beach stretches for miles, and you can enjoy deep sea fishing or horseback riding right from the beach on property. The Riu is an active resort, and the pool features the largest swim-up bar I've seen yet. Enjoy a massage on the beach. There is a large casino and shopping arcade also.
Prefer volcanoes, hot springs, white water rafting and ziplining? How about spending a few days at the beach and then a few days in the interior. Arenal Manoa is a great base for enjoying soaking in hot springs, or hiking cloud forests. Enjoy a fantastic view of the volcano from your villa.
