Four Seasons Residence Clubs Costa Rica at Peninsula Papagayo Destination

Explore Costa Rica

In Costa Rica’s north-west corner, in the Guanacaste Province, Four Seasons Residence Clubs Costa Rica at Peninsula Papagayo is set within a pristine paradise of mountain ranges and waterfalls, tropical forests and scenic beaches.

While Costa Rica has only about 0.1% of the world’s land mass, it contains 5% of the world’s plant and animal species. Numerous national parks and wildlife refuges have helped protect this biodiversity and establish the country as one of the world’s most perfectly preserved ecosystems. More than 25% of Costa Rica is composed of protected forests and reserves.

The natural wonders may be explored with fascinating eco-adventures on land and sea, as well as visits to historic sites and quaint villages. Caressed by the warm, crystal-clear waters of the Pacific, Guanacaste’s beaches are some of the best in Costa Rica.

Renowned for its democratic government and sophisticated educational system, Costa Rica is also well known for its friendly, welcoming citizens – who usually refer to themselves as “ticos.” Their greeting for “hello” and “good-bye” is pura vida – an affirmation for “pure life.”

Your home at Four Seasons Residence Clubs Costa Rica gives you the perfect base for exploring the country and truly feeling like a part of this rich and fascinating culture.

Costa Rica has a tropical climate with two very distinct seasons. The Green Season lasts from May to November, while the Gold Season begins in December and runs through to April. The seasons are so named because they represent the rich colours of the landscape. During the Green Season, there is typically a rain shower late in the afternoon or evening, keeping the landscape green. During the Gold Season, virtually no rain falls, turning the landscape a deep golden brown. In Guanacaste, the dry Gold Season lasts several weeks longer than in other areas.

Temperatures vary primarily with elevation, not with season: on the coasts, the weather is hot all year, while in the mountains, nights can be cool at any time of the year. For the latest weather conditions in Peninsula Papagayo, please contact the Resort.
