An open-air design integrates this swanky resort into the surrounding tropical paradise, where you're just a short walk from the surf on uncrowded beaches.

The Destination
Nosara has been dubbed a surfer's paradise, but wave seekers aren't the only ones who appreciate the swell of warm Pacific waters breaking on Playa Guiones or the rugged solitude of Playa Pelada. Even the most devoted of surfers—once they turn their gaze from blue-green waters and tawny shores—marvel at local wildlife encounters, from howler monkeys and exotic birds to sea turtles. Snorkeling, zip-lining, and kayaking are just a rental away. And with tangles of jungle calling on one side and the ocean singing its siren song on the other, this little slice of paradise never fails to leave travelers enchanted.

The Digs
In a country credited with inventing eco-tourism, L'acqua Viva Resort and Spa doesn't go against the grain—but it does stand out. A short distance from the sighing shoreline, this Balinese-style resort features spacious verandas, cool courtyards, and 35 units that blend seamlessly into the area's flourishing flora. Air-conditioned rooms offer king- or queen-size beds, flat-screen televisions, and balconies. The resort's water-centric ethos is reflected in serene pools and fountains dotting the facilities, which are replete with warm woods and bright colors mirroring the golden sun, rich earth, and flowering tropical life on display just outside your door.

The Diversions
Splash. Playas Pelada and Guiones
Toast. On-site bar and restaurant
Explore. Nosara Biological Reserve
Get hands-on. Horseback riding, river boating, kayaking, snorkeling, and more

The Details
• This voucher does not include airfare—Guanacaste airport is about a 2-hour drive
• Leave the kids (yours and others) behind when you stay at this adults-only property

  • This is the most upscale and best equipped hotel in Nosara, and it features some unique and beautiful architectural touches, including a wide range of pools and water features.

    -- Frommer's
  • [T]here's a reason the majority of visitors descend on Playa Guiones. It's quite simply a slice of raw nectar. A wide generous undeveloped arc of marbled sand, with a few pebbles and shells mixed in, excellent beach breaks and plenty of space.
