Item Description

Costa Rica, which translates literally as "Rich Coast", attracts more than one million visitors eager to catch a wave, bathe under a waterfall, spot a sloth or otherwise enjoy paradise. This tiny Central American country embodies the perfect appreciation of life’s simple delights. It is no doubt that Costa Rica was named "the happiest place" on earth for its most content people, best ecological footprint and the average life expectancy according to the Happy Planet Index (HPI). So, whether you’re a beach bum, surf nut, nature enthusiast or just someone looking to chill out and escape the world, visit Costa Rica and experience a vacation like no other!

Enjoy a total of (6) nights at either or both of these luxury Marriott® resorts in Costa Rica, valid one year from date of purchase. Your stay at JW Marriott Guanacaste Resort & Spa is available year-round, and the Los Suenos Marriott Ocean & Golf Resort is available June 1 through November 30, subject to availability.  Transportation between these two locations is not included.


This province for the active soul draws visitors with its stunning shoreline, incredible bird watching, amazing horseback riding, excellent surfing, superb snorkeling and wonderful mountain lake windsurfing.  Forming the eastern borders of Guanacaste are a chain of volcanoes that stretch out to join the Cordillera de Guanacaste and Cordillera de Tilaran mountain ranges.  Offering some truly terrific hiking facilities, tourists can trek their way to the summit of a number of volcanoes, including Rincon de la Vieja Volcano Area, to enjoy some really breathtaking views of the surrounding countryside.  Tamarindo is perhaps the most accessible beach town on the country’s entire northern Pacific Coast. Enjoy surfing, swimming, snorkeling, sailing, kayaking, jet skiing, boogie boarding, horseback riding and scuba diving, or visit the nearby wildlife refuge of Diria, as well as the Marino Las Baulas National Park, where leatherback turtles come every summer to nest and breed.

JW Marriott Guanacaste Resort & Spa (Tamarindo) - A stunning oceanfront resort quickly being recognized as one of the most magnificent in Latin America, the resort is located on the country's northwestern coast and offers the comforts and luxuries associated with JW Marriott in an environment that is richly and authentically Costa Rican. The resort is located on a pristine secluded beach, unspoiled and peacefully surrounded by the splendors of Costa Rican nature. With a choice of three beaches, championship golf, an equestrian center, world-class spa and more, your experience will be unforgettable. The 18-hole championship course is a masterpiece of golf architect Mike Young. Be sure to pause at the 15th hole overlooking the serene and blue Pacific.  This resort is located approximately 116 miles northwest of San Jose International Airport. Your stay at this resort is available year-round, subject to availability.


Lying to the west and stretching along two thirds of the country’s Pacific Coast, Puntarenas is the largest province in Costa Rica and extends all the way to Costa Rica’s southern border with Panama. Home to a fantastic array of flora and fauna, this province is great if you want to have an incredible eco-adventure or just lie back and take in the gorgeous surroundings. North Puntarenas has a number of beautiful national parks and refuges that one can visit to enjoy the beauty of this province. The region’s most popular attraction is easily the Parque National Manuel Antonio, with its superb white sand beaches and lush green mountains.  A quiet beach some ten years ago, Playa Herradura was an unknown paradise with a superb black sand beach, aqua green waters and a palm tree lined shoreline.

Los Suenos Marriott Ocean & Golf Resort (Playa Herradura) - Recognized by Travel+Leisure magazine readers as one of the "World's Best", this luxurious resort is nestled between the warm waters of the Pacific Gulf of Nicoya and a 1,100 acre tropical rainforest. A memorable Costa Rica beach resort vacation awaits, gliding from tree to tree on a canopy tour or just sitting back and relaxing along the palm-lined free-form pool. This resort also features six restaurants and lounges in magnificent settings that heighten the experience. Set alongside the rainforest, the La Iguana 18-hole Championship Golf Course offers not only a challenging layout, but a gallery of friendly monkeys and brightly hued macaws. Try your luck at the Stellaris Casino or simply pamper yourself with a Costa Rican inspired massage at the new Sibö Rainforest Spa & Retreat.  This resort is located approximately 60 miles southwest of San Jose International Airport.  Your stay at this resort is available June 1 through November 30, subject to availability.
