Spilling down a pristine coastal hillside high above the Pacific, Four Seasons Resort Costa Rica at Peninsula Papagayo offers the best vantage point from which to explore the eco-adventures that await you.

Bordered by Nicaragua to the north, Panama to the south, the Pacific Ocean to the west and the Caribbean Sea to the east, the location of Four Seasons Resort Costa Rica at Peninsula Papagayo allows easy access to American markets and shares the same time zone as the central part of the United States.

Depending on where you’re departing from in the U.S., you can actually be in Costa Rica in five hours or less (just a 2.5-hour flight from Miami and 5 hour flight from New York.) Also, a new, state-of-the art terminal will be opening at Daniel Oduber International Airport in Liberia in August 2011, just a 40-minute drive from the luxury Resort.

The remote area of Peninsula Papagayo in Costa Rica is home to one of the world’s last intact dry tropical forests. Untainted and extraordinary, this magical world is rich with rare, native plants, mist-shrouded trees and countless endangered species. Ideally positioned on the narrowest portion of the peninsula, the Resort is fringed by stunning golden-sand beaches. To the north, Playa Virador, is a quiet beach that invites leisurely strolls and sea-shell hunts. Playa Blanca, to the south, features a sports pavilion complete with equipment and instruction on an array of water sports from scuba diving to sea kayaking. Sail off into the sunset—literally—on the Resort’s spectacular 47-foot private catamaran.

Home to the blue, black and striped marlin, Costa Rica is also a premier destination for deep sea fishing and world-class surfing. The epic waves of nearby Witch’s Rock, Potrero Grande and Ollie’s Point lure surf enthusiasts to experience the ultimate thrill of riding the perfect wave.

Back on land, one-of-a-kind moments occur on a moment-by-moment basis. Allow the Resort’s Concierge to arrange an awe-inspiring guided nature walk where you’ll come face to face with nearly 300 species of birds, iguanas and the elusive howler monkey. Discover protected breeding grounds for the scarce leatherback turtle, and play the breathtaking, oceanside Arnold Palmer–designed golf course.

Upon your return, retreat to your jungle side suite or villa and soak in the beauty of this wondrous place from the privacy of your personal plunge pool. Succumb to the soothing embrace of a treetop massage. And recount the day’s adventures as you dine under the stars, savouring the sea’s freshest bounty, just steps from the surf.

Begin planning your next luxury Costa Rican vacation adventure and enjoy offers such as a Resort Credit to be used for spa, golf, dining or even your room rate.
