Trade your to-do list for a do-whatever list at Parador Resort & Spa. With endless stretches of white sand and a lush jungle, you might have to relearn the word “responsibilities” when you get back from vacation. Oh, did we mention the three swimming pools, four restaurants and bars, and world-class spa?
Whether you’re keen to surf, buddy up with the wildlife, or capture reels of choice pics, Manuel Antonio National Park’s got you covered. You’re secluded enough to enjoy the untouched jungle, but not so far off the beaten track that you can’t head to San Jose to see another side of Costa Rica.
The tropical surroundings have a way of bringing friends and couples closer. And after an adventurous 4 ½-hour hike, a 30-minute couple’s massage, and an intimate dinner for two, you and your fellow traveler will be finishing each other’s sentences.
