Exclusivity and luxury are the terms associated with Peninsula Papagayo vacation rentals. Costa Rica's northeastern Pacific enclave is the destination of choice for travelers looking for a high-end vacation experience coupled with impressive natural beauty.

COSTA RICA

Costa Rica comprises 7 provinces. The unbelievably picturesque Papagayo Peninsula is at the northeastern corner of Costa Rica’s Guanacaste Province, on the Pacific coastline. The landmass of this promontory is under 3000 acres. It's where you will find the most luxurious villas of Peninsula Papagayo. Modern, expansive, and charming, these beautiful homes command views over the water and have easy access to the treasures of Costa Rica.

Costa Rica arrived rather late to the tourist trail, and this has been one of its greatest assets. Government bodies made smart decisions to protect the country's natural beauty. Yes, there are glorious resorts and developments along Peninsula Papagayo's Pacific coastline, but they are low-level constructs that meld with their environment.

A typically safe country to visit with a stable democratic government, there's a warm welcome for visitors. The services, restaurants, and amenities reflect a very cosmopolitan vibe. It's no wonder Costa Rica and, most especially, regions like Papagayo Peninsula are celebrated globally as exceptional destinations.

THE AMENITIES

Peninsula Papagayo Costa Rica vacation rentals are the ideal place to base yourself to enjoy the region's amenities. The spectacular Cielo Mar villa, with a huge pool, staff, and commanding views across Prieta Beach and surrounding headlands, comes with golf carts and bikes that you can use to travel around Peninsula Papagayo. In addition, you will find access to the Prieta Beach Club included in your rental where you can enjoy the restaurants and amenities of the exclusive Club.

If you are partial to golf, the nearby Arnold Palmer Golf Course – considered the best in Costa Rica – will delight you. If you are staying at Casa Caiman, one of the Peninsula Papagayo villas of note, you will be happy to have the complimentary use of golf equipment. Again, guests will enjoy the exceptional views from this luxury property. The lush trees surrounding each of the properties of Peninsula Papagayo ensure privacy.

The newly developed Marina in Peninsula Papagayo has become an important staging area for the Eastern Tropical Pacific seascape. Visitors to the area often arrive by yacht and move to one of the Peninsula Papagayo vacation rentals for a land-based holiday before sailing onward to other destinations in the Pacific.

THE ACTIVITIES

Well, it's Costa Rica! There is just so much to do. Water sports are at the heart of any vacation to Peninsula Papagayo. This landmass is surrounded on three sides by water. Eleven miles of coastline with seven gorgeous beaches ensure there's something for everyone.

Sheltered beaches like Prieta Beach, with its exclusive Beach Club, are a firm favorite for families. The Beach Club has a kids' club, several pools, and restaurants. In addition, there's a spa for Mom and Dad, who can luxuriate with some pampering while the tots enjoy socializing and having supervised fun with other children.

The beautiful beach at Playa Blanca is where Peninsula Papagayo home rental guests like to hang out. As the name suggests, the sand is white. The water is beautifully clear too. You will find a lifeguard on duty for periods of the day, a great go-to person for advice on the best swimming and snorkeling locations.

Off-the-beaten-track beaches like the glorious Playa Nacascolo see few visitors from beyond the beautiful homes and resorts of Peninsula Papagayo. Small waves make this a great beach for stand-up paddleboarding, kayaking, and just messing about in the shallows.

Public Beaches

All the beaches in Costa Rica are open to the public. Yet along the Peninsula Papagayo, you will find the beaches aren't over-busy. Luckily, access to the various beaches and coves around this exclusive enclave isn't very easy for non-residents, so only the most organized visitor to the Peninsula generally gets onto the lovely beaches.

Sailing and Fishing

Chartering a boat, ideally with a skipper, is a great way to explore the coastline of Costa Rica. The Peninsula provides several deserted coves and allows you to admire the beauty of the terrain.

If you like to pit your wits against some big game fish, then a fishing charter is a must-do. Even if you don't reel in that historic catch for the ultimate holiday souvenir, you will love the open spaces of the wild Pacific with its limitless horizons. If you time your sailing trip, you can enjoy one of the brilliant sunsets that are all part of the Costa Rica vacation floor show.

Socializing

You won't find the bustle of some of the larger tourist communities on Peninsula Papagayo as this is the ultimate destination for travelers who want to unwind, keep active and switch up the traditional vacation experience. Generally, you and your fellow guests can create your own celebratory events, especially if you are staying at one of the larger self-contained luxury villas like Casa del Mar Resident Estate at the Four Seasons Resort.

In addition to accessing the wonderful Resort amenities like tennis, golf, and spa, there's a terrific teen club and a separate kids club. These are safe spaces for younger guests to make friends. Restaurants, bars, and an in-house DJ provide lots of evening entertainment. If you have a special occasion, why not add a private chef to your booking to deliver a heavenly dinner within the confines of your luxury villa?

WILD AND WONDERFUL

If you want to experience the natural world surrounding all Costa Rica luxury villas Peninsula Papagayo is the place to do it. The cutest White-Faced monkeys move around the trees that fringe the perfect beaches. These mischievous little critters are used to humans and enjoy being the star attraction. In addition, you will find them more than happy to take a healthy treat from you if you encounter them.

Another native of Papagayo is the curious Coati. You won't have any hassle with this cute daytime mammal. Looking like a ring-tailed lima, this little guy weaves in and out of the forests; he's happy to forage for his lunch and then roost in the trees at sunset.

Take a leisurely forest walk if you want to see a sloth or any number of tropical birds. The services of an informed guide will expand the experience for you.

Canopy Tours are a great adrenalin rush. Many, many feet above the forest floor, you can woosh through the air on steel zip lines enjoying views over the trees to the coast beyond. The legacy of so much volcanic activity has gifted waterfalls, hills, and ravines – wonderful for anyone who likes to do some trail biking or hiking.

A good pair of binoculars will allow you to scan the coastline for dolphins or whales. Nearby nature parks like Rincon de la Vieja, with active volcanoes, and Monteverde Cloud Forest, are wonderful day trips.

GETTING THERE

Liberia Airport is the nearest airport to Peninsula Papagayo, only about 30 minutes away. In addition, many luxury villas featured in the Exceptional Villas portfolio offer complimentary airport transfers.

US carriers like Alaska Airlines, American, Delta, Jetblue, Southwest, Spirit, and United all offer services from major US cities.
