Costa Rica – Day 4

Hello, Everyone!  Below is my final day in Costa Rica.  It’s been a fantastic adventure!  I hope that each of you has the opportunity to experience this destination for yourself!  I also encourage you to check out the various programs that Apple offers – There’s something for everyone! Pura Vida!

JW Marriott Guanacaste Resort & Spa – This EP resort is one of the newest in the area at only 15 months old.  Absolutely stunning property!  Resort features 310 beautiful rooms with flat screen TV’s.  No front desk but rather an intimate air conditioned room with three individual desks for more personalized check in/out.  Free WIFI throughout the entire property or there’s a Business Center with Internet access for a small fee.  Resort offers 2 bars, 6 restaurants, a huge wine cellar, 24 hour room service and a Catholic chapel.  Guests can golf nearby for $80 including the cart or take a class – Yoga, Dance, Pilates, Language or Cultural.  HUGE Spa – Voted by Travel Leisure as the Best and Biggest Spa in Central America!  This resort is truly a winner!

Barcelo Playa Langosta Resort & Casino – Great value!  Resort is located in the Tamarindo area.  GREAT SURFING!!!  Features 998 rooms, 5 bars, 2 restaurants (had lunch here and the food was really good), on site casino and a large theater with a different show every night.  Grounds are extremely lush.  Very nice beach (waves are pretty intense) and nice pool.  There is a surcharge for top shelf liquor.  I would say this is a great resort for anyone looking to be close to the nightlife in Tamarindo or anyone wanting to surf.
