As you step off the plane at Liberia International Airport, we will be there to meet you and provide transportation to the all-inclusive Westin Playa Conchal Resort, less than one hour away in the Pacific Northwest. Set on over 2,000 acres, the Westin complex includes an 18-hole, Par 71 designer golf course, refreshing swimming pools for after a day at the beach, an assortment of recreational activities for adults and kids alike with separate facilities for those desiring an adults-only or family-friendly experience. After exploring the beautiful crushed pink shell beach of Playa Conchal, you can double back through the hotel’s beach access and dip into the refreshing swimming pools or lounge under the white canvas beach umbrellas taking in the smell of the salt air and sound of the surf. You’ll have a full day to discover the resort’s many amenities as well as sample some of the fabulous food found in eleven onsite restaurants. After a day or two of free time luxuriating at the resort, get ready to hit the big time with an all-day combination adventure extravaganza!
Transportation will be provided to the Canyon Lodge headquarters, part of a private reserve located close to the volcanic Rincon de la Vieja National Park. Typically on this full day of adventure, you’ll start out riding horses to get a feel for the famous Guanacaste cowboy countryside. Next, you’ll zip across the forest canopy over the Colorado Canyon. After rappelling down to the cooling Colorado River, you’ll return by way of the canyon’s natural rock wall. After lunch you’ll shoot the rapids heading downriver on specially made whitewater inflatable tubes, ending the day at a volcanic hot spring to soak in the deliciously warm thermal waters and take a mud bath if you like. The order of events may change but the fun never stops.
Once back at the resort, you can enjoy cocktails and dinner at one of the many all-included gourmet restaurants featuring dishes from around the world as well as a taste of local fare. Please note, that some of the restaurants require reservations in advance and may have a dress code. You might like to partake in the live evening activities or stroll the grounds under the moonlight. If you miss the last call, you’ll find 24-hour room service with a limited bar menu. The next day is yours to do as you please, resting under the cabanas, playing a round of golf, getting in a game of tennis, keeping up your exercise routine at the fitness gym, or using some of the resort’s non-motorized sports equipment for some extra fun at the beach. You may want to splurge on one of the many available spa services either indoors, outdoors, or in the comfort of your own room. Families and kids are sure to enjoy the Kids’ Club outdoor playground, special pool, indoor game room plus board and video games, and a variety of movies. Often there is entertainment at night for kids as well. A special Juniors program at the golf course can help your child learn or improve their game on the greens. Use of the golf course, golf lessons, spa services, and some of the beach equipment cost extra. Due to the expansive grounds of the resort, complimentary electric shuttles will provide easy access for guests.
Next up, a relaxing half-day catamaran cruise aboard the Lazy Lizard will introduce you to the many remarkable seafaring animals, from water birds flying overhead diving down to catch a meal, to exploring the underwater world on a guided snorkeling tour at a deserted cove. Costa Rica’s northwestern coastline is one of the least developed shoreline areas accessible to tourists and therefore the waters are often quite clear for excellent viewing of colorful tropical fish living in their natural habitat. It is not uncommon to see turtles, flying rays, eels, and other forms of interesting undersea wildlife. Friendly dolphins like to swim alongside the boat and at certain times of the year, there may be whale sightings as these mighty leviathans migrate south to reproduce in the warm Pacific waters.
After another free day to relax and enjoy the resort’s ever-changing menu of activities, walk the beach or simply reflect on the beautiful experience of being in Costa Rica, you’ll pack up all your recently made memories and head back to the airport by way of our provided transportation services. If you would like to customize your vacation package by adding a tour, perhaps an offshore sportfishing trip, or a trip to Playa Tamarindo for surf lessons, we are here to help you have a dream vacation.
