The Destination
With rhythmic waves lapping against the shore in one direction, and a symphony of rain forest flora and fauna in the other, Costa Rica's Gulf of Papagayo has the perfect tone and tenor for a remote, restful, and revitalizing getaway. The region is removed, even by Costa Rica's standards, with hardly any human habitation between here and Nicaragua. Here, a world of breathtaking forest preserves, coconut-tree-lined beaches, and the soothing sounds of nature, courtesy of hundreds of species of birds and butterflies, reigns.

The Digs
They don't call it Vista Bahia Beach Resort for nothing. Perched above the gulf, this pool-equipped 33-room boutique resort boasts unparalleled views of the waters below. Here, because of the resort's unique position on the bay, you'll be treated to a thriving ecosystem of birds, fish, and other animals that come to feed in these particularly calm waters. But the resort could also be called Mono Beach Resort, for the tribe of howler monkeys that call the jungle behind the property home.

Rooms are appointed with fully equipped kitchens, ocean-view balconies, living and dining areas, comfortable beds, cable TV, direct-dial telephone, wireless Internet, air-conditioning, and hot water. Come mealtime, sit down to local cuisine at the on-site restaurant, which prides itself on ultra-fresh fruits and vegetables (be sure to start each day with a smoothie!).

The Diversions
Vista Bahia offers the best of both worlds. Just 25 minutes from Liberia International Airport, the resort is also perfectly situated for high adventure. Rent a kayak and paddle to a number of remote beaches, with snorkel equipment, of course. Or, stay right on the beach and try your hand at fishing. You'll also be within 20 minutes of sea turtle nesting grounds, and about an hour and a half from volcanoes, hot springs, and ziplining.
