The Pacific Ocean’s Gulf of Papagayo offers what those in the know treasure about Costa Rica: Quiet afternoons, sun-drenched beaches and a host of natural splendors. Papagayo’s clear, blue waters are guarded to the north and south by peninsulas that provide the gulf with a calm slice of the ocean ideal for swimming and relaxing. We are thrilled to be able to announce this idyllic hideaway as our 2023 Chairman’s Council Awards destination.

This area boasts a number of protected areas that include water, land, mountain and coastal ecosystems teaming with life. The incomparable beauty of the landscapes, which range from tropical dry forests to lowland mountain forests, the warm climate, as well as the flourishing surrounding nature have made Papagayo’s Guanacaste region one of the most visited by local and international travelers.

An array of white-sand beaches with intense-blue waters spread along the Guanacaste coastline. And, at just five hours northwest of San Jose and a quick 30-minute drive from Liberia, the Papagayo Gulf offers the accessibility for a quick visit, but the seclusion of a romantic getaway. We can’t wait to serve as your hosts in this Costa Rican paradise.
