Just as the fiery Pacific Rim has toasted the sands of Northern Costa Rica to a crisp golden gray and black, so too will you find tropical flavors cooked to perfection into today's Escape to Occidental Allegro Papagayo.
Simmer down for an all-inclusive stay for two in your Spanish-style Superior Suite for three ($389), four ($509), or five ($629) nights between October 7 through December 22 or for three ($619), four ($799), or five ($988) nights from January 3 through March 31.
Carved from the side of a bluff teeming with lush tropical vegetation, your plush accommodations bubble over with amenities. Tiptoe across terra cotta tile to your balcony, where seaside clouds pepper stunning sunrises and sunsets.
In the morning, sounds of scarlet macaws and howler monkeys spill forth from the surrounding rain forests as you sit down to an international buffet-style breakfast at Los Corales, replete with fresh local fruits and vegetables and native Tico fare including savory rice and beans.
Iron out your kinks on the table with a 20-percent discount toward massages at the resort spa before you burn off stress with a free aerobics lesson. Then, warm up by the pool in a chaise lounge or grab a cocktail by the swim-up bar. The resort's private beach offers some of the hottest activities from sand soccer and volleyball on the shore to water polo in the surf.
Take advantage of a private scuba lesson—you never know what will bubble up from the deep of Papagayo Bay, from white-tip reef sharks to stingrays, turtles, octopus, and Angel fish. Paddle out over a cauldron of coral reefs on a kayak, or let things get steamy with a trip to one of the country's countless hot springs or the iconic Arenal Volcano.
Get those exotic travel plans off the back-burner and serve yourself a helping of Central American amusement with this Escape to Costa Rica that simply can't be overdone.
