Five of our top-selling all-inclusive resorts in Costa Rica are highlighted below. The Central American country is a haven for travelers who love nature and outdoor adventure; roughly a quarter of its territory is preserved as national parks or conservation areas. Travelers will find misting rainforests, smoking volcanoes, crashing waterfalls and pristine beaches here. Hummingbirds hover at hibiscus flowers, howler monkeys bellow from the treetops and iguanas may lounge in the sun not far from your poolside chair.
The resorts below are in the northwest Pacific coast province of Guanacaste. The upfront rate includes meals, snacks, alcoholic and nonalcoholic beverages, entertainment and nonmotorized water sports. Click the links to price a stay at any of them, with or without airfare.
