Next up we head to the beach area to the modern Andaz Peninsula Papagayo (via helicopter which was AMAZING – took our 3.5 hour transfer between resorts down to 30 minutes- HIGHLY recommend). This resort pairs perfectly with Nayara; once you’ve worked up a sweat hiking or in the jungle, you can spend the last few days of your trip relaxing on one of their comfy bean bag loungers poolside, with a freshly made margarita in hand.
The dining at this resort also will not disappoint. Opt for traditional Costa Rican tapas at Chao Pescao (don’t get me started on those arepas), fine dining at Ostra, or take in the breezy, open air Rhio Bongo (where your complimentary breakfast is served daily). This property also offers a good number of excursions, so you can fill your days with zip lining, sunset cruises, paddle boarding, or more. Or, stay on property & opt for a mixology class or ceviche demonstration (both of which I took advantage of & loved!).
