Why Stay At Andaz Peninsula Papagayo
Nestled in tropical rainforests with breathtaking views of Culebra Bay discover a uniquely designed hideout in Costa Rica.
Andaz Papagayo seamlessly blends into the lush foliage of its gently tamed forest surroundings. The airy villas are equipped with air conditioning, Wi-Fi Internet access and walk-in rain showers. Designed using dark-hued native woods, artful carvings and woven fabrics your abode offers access to a furnished private balcony from both the living and bathrooms. Costa Rica's motto is "pure life", so splash around one of the two stunning pools or frolic on the powdery sands of one of the hotel's private beaches and ride the surf jet skiing or body boarding. You may also opt to simply relax during a sugar cane massage at the spa. Three on-site restaurants paint a culinary picture of indigenous culture. Most notable is open-air Rio Bhongo where guests are invited to watch chefs prepare dinner and taste several native dishes at live cooking stations.
Feeling peckish? Raid the mini bar, which is stocked with complimentary snacks and non-alcoholic beverages.
Serious cool factor: A classic VW bus serves as a shuttle between the Andaz and neighboring resorts.
Arrive at Daniel Oduber Quiròs International Airport (LIR) which is approximately 19 miles from the resort. Anticipate about 35 minutes of travel time.Peninsula Papagayo, Guanacaste, Costa Rica

Why We Love Guanacaste
Dense tropical rainforest and nearly three dozen untouched beaches draw visitors to this fertile peninsula. Prepare to see some lively denizens such as howler and squirrel monkeys.
Where to Drink: Ogle the sunset from one of the bright blue Adirondack chairs right on the sand and sip a potent Mai Tai or signature Margarita at beachfront Aqua Sport bar. Bonus: complimentary Wi-Fi for patrons. Drinks for two $15.
Playa Hermosa, Papagayo.
Outdoor Excursion: Change your point of view and book a skywalk with Sky Adventures. Your guide will whisk you off to Monteverde cloud forest to view the leafy canopy of trees and the fauna hidden below from lofty observation platforms, high-up walkways and suspension bridges. 3-hour tour $35 per adult.
Day Trip: Take a 115-mile drive across the border to the historical Nicaraguan town of Granada. Some of the finest colonial-era architecture in the country has been preserved here.
