Why Stay At Costa d'Este Beach Resort
This 94-room, stylistically retro hotel is just steps from the Atlantic Ocean, with easy access to Florida's legendary beach scene. It's also within walking distance of the Indian River and its bevy of marine life.
This hip beachfront property is a window into 1950's Florida. Expect Midcentury Modern-style touches like rounded walls and wood paneling, plus built-in portholes that recall Miami's days of yore. It's owned by Gloria and Emilio Estefan, and you'll feel their presence the most at The Wave Kitchen & Bar, where the menu features home-style Cuban specialties from the Estefan Kitchen cookbook, including ropa vieja (shredded beef) and pollo asado (roasted chicken)—best enjoyed to the soundtrack of a live, 12-string Latin guitarist who plays every Friday and Saturday evening. Life here revolves around the beach (steps from your room) and pool, where you and yours can cuddle up on a rattan lounger built for two.
The "Splash Stylist" team offers a host of complimentary pampering services while you relax by the pool, from hour-long foot massages to delivering frozen grapes and chilled aromatherapy cloths (all free). They'll even clean your shades.
The mojito is king at this hotel. Guests receive a complimentary glass of the classic Cuban cocktail upon check in, as well as nightly mojito cards that can be redeemed at the resort's restaurant or bar.
Arrive at Palm Beach International Airport (PBI) which is approximately 80 miles from the resort. Anticipate about 90 minutes of travel time.3244 Ocean Drive, Vero Beach, Florida, United States

Why We Love Vero Beach
The city is split by the Indian River—a massive body of water where manatees, dolphins, and seabirds are routinely spotted. Its five miles of Atlantic Ocean coastline are dotted with sparsely packed beaches where you can chill all day long.
3001 Ocean Dr.
Dinner for two $80.
Where to Drink: Steps from the shore, Ocean Grill's wooden shack was built by legendary Vero Beach architect and entrepreneur Waldo Sexton and provides a relaxing respite. Try a Pusser's Painkiller, made with rum, pineapple, and coconut.
1050 Sexton Plaza.
Drinks for two $22.
Best Outdoor Excursion: Less than a half-mile walk from the hotel you can partake in a pontoon ride down the Indian River. Hosted by River Explorer Boat Tours, this two-hour adventure gets you up close and personal with bottlenose dolphins, manatees, and pelicans.
3341 Bridge Plaza Dr.
Best Day Trip: Explore the final frontier at Kennedy Space Center, located 85 miles away. Strap in for a simulated space ride, check out the facility's outdoor rocket garden, and meet veteran astronauts as they share aeronautical history.
