Dubbed the "Gold Coast" by Spanish conquistadors, Costa Rica's Pacific shoreline glitters as it stretches all the way from Nicaragua to the Nicoya Peninsula. Once home to oodles of ore, this flaxen-sand landscape features a treasure trove of gorgeous beaches. Backed by groves of buttonwood trees, the curvaceous beaches of the Gulf of Papagayo boast gentle surf, perfect for pint-sized swimmers and sun-soaked afternoon siestas.
Carved from the side of a bluff teeming with lush tropical vegetation, your plush accommodations at the Occidental Grand Papagayo 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 L'Buffet, 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 massage at the resort spa. 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.
