Costa Rica: North Pacific

Four Seasons Costa Rica at Peninsula Papagayo

Spilling down a coastal hillside to an isthmus of golden sand, Four Seasons creates an ambience of simple luxury in this pristine natural setting with two unspoiled beaches, an indigenous spa, championship golf and the magic of the tropical dry forest. Four Seasons is positioned on Costa Rica’s northwest Pacific coast within the province of Guanacaste. Though it’s the country’s second-largest province by area, Guanacaste is the least populated, offering a calm, peaceful ambience. The pampas – or prairie – landscape is an unusual mix of grassy savannahs, immense cattle ranches and tropical dry forest, backed by volcanic mountain ranges. Four Seasons is located on exclusive Peninsula Papagayo, a master-planned resort community encompassing 930 hectares (2,300 acres). This secluded natural sanctuary provides abundant opportunities to experience eco-adventure on land and in the water.
