Want to explore the jungles, volcanoes, and beaches of Costa Rica in luxury? We found a vacation package that offers a huge savings — and the itinerary is pure relaxation.
You’ll kick off vacation near one of the country's best-known sights, the Arenal Volcano. After flying into Liberia airport, you'll meet your driver for a complimentary private transfer to the Arenal Kioro Hotel, which has great views of the volcano, a tropical garden, and its own on-sight hot springs that you can dip into free of charge (entry is usually $30). With the package, you get three nights for the price of two (you're paying around $576 for the three nights instead of $864 this summer to fall — bringing your total down $288). Daily breakfasts are also included, and you can choose to arrange any zip-lining, rafting, or hiking separately.
Next you'll be transferred from the lush terrain to the beach at Playas del Coco, where you’ll spend four nights at Villa Buena Onda, a boutique adults-only hotel that has a dreamy two-tier pool and ocean views. The package includes four nights for the price of three, bringing your cost down $615, the price of one night for two in a master suite. Lots of extra value comes with your stay, too: all meals are included as well as access to The Club at CocoBay and the Beach Club, two of the villa’s exclusive beach clubs. Plus, you’ll go on a private tour of hidden beaches in the area with a BBQ bash (a $225 value), and get your choice of a complimentary 50-minute Swedish couples massage or a $150 bar credit. All private transfers (to and from the airport and in between hotels) are included.
The seven-night trip starts at $1,797 per person. We priced it out, and if you paid for all this yourself, you’d easily rack up a charge of at least $2,600. That’s around a 30 percent price reduction, which not only offers a significant savings, it takes the planning off your shoulders, too.
The deal is valid to book for travel now through December 15.
