Costa Rica is a playground for kids and their families. Go horseback riding or hiking, play soccer on the beach, learn how to scuba dive – or let our specially trained staff entertain the kids while the adults enjoy an afternoon by the pool or a romantic dinner for two.

    Providing a convenient opportunity to witness nature in the Costa Rican forest, the Resort offers its own hiking trail.
