Bask in Costa Rica's beaches at this tropical locale, complete with private verandas and plenty of space for sun-bathing.

The Destination
Known as the crown jewel of Costa Rica's Pacific beaches, Playa Carrillo is an untouched enclave of soft white sand, swaying palm trees, and clear turquoise waters. Nestled in a rocky cove with the sounds of lapping waves as a continuous soundtrack, this unspoiled stretch of palm-lined paradise is perfect for the traveler seeking true tranquility. Calm waters provide for hours of snorkeling and swimming, while a short walk into town reveals the traditional colors of a Costa Rican community with a touch of exotic luxury.

The Digs
High on a craggy hill overlooking the beach sits Hotel Leyenda, a lush tropical oasis of villas and crystal pools. Spacious indoor-outdoor suites provide for a beachy ambiance, with traditional tile floors, private verandas overlooking green gardens, and white linen curtains that billow in the breeze. After arriving, slip down to the pool for sun-bathing, game playing, or picnicking under the palms. With complimentary shuttle service to and from the beach, you're never far from your own private cabana on the sandy shore—perfect for soaking up the sun and the occasional dolphin sighting.

The Diversions
At the southern end of the Playa Carrillo bay, La Selva Wildlife Refuge offers an exciting glimpse of Costa Rica's rare wildlife, while the surrounding Bromeliad Gardens provide an equally exotic show. Before retiring to your beach bungalow, grab a bite at the scenic on-site restaurant, where fresh seafood and sizzling grill specialities are the perfect accoutrements to the setting sun.

The Details
• Voucher doesn't include airfare or transportation to the tours
• You'll pay the 13% taxes directly to the property

  • Playa Carrillo is one of the least-developed spots on the Nicoya Peninsula. Framed by mountains, the laid-back fishing village has a white-sand beach just off a palm-lined boulevard (there are no unsightly beachfront buildings).
