Kids Are Back in School- Time for a Grown-up Getaway to Los Sueños Resort, Costa Rica
Let’s face it: Summer vacation with the kids at Los Sueños Resort can be a blast, but a grown-up getaway without them can be even more fun, not to mention relaxing.
You deserve it; it’s been a long summer, and the kids are back in school; now it’s time for mommies and daddies to get away. So call up grandma, or aunt Sue, or the nanny, and ask her to stay. You’ve earned it, you two, a long, sweet, grown-up getaway.
Here are 7 fantastically fun things to do – just the two of you.
A day out on the greens is just the ticket for some beautiful, peaceful, quiet relaxation. A little competition between the two of you is always fun, and La Iguana Golf course just fits the bill. 18 holes of championship design, the course is made extra special by the rainforest that surrounds it and you’ll find that you’re accompanied, not by noisy children, but by toucans and monkeys.
There is nothing like a day out on the water, fishing for blue marlin, that gets the adrenalin pumping, and the feeling of freedom flowing. No kids, no worries- just you, your partner, and the challenge of the big one. With the sun sparkling off the Pacific and a cold one in hand, you’ll enjoy a day of sport fishing off the shores of Costa Rica, with no worries at all other than where you’ll be having dinner that evening.
For a day of challenging rapids, lots of laughter, grown-up good times, and fun, river rafting in Costa is just what the doctor ordered. There are a number of class III and IV rivers near to Los Sueños Resort and, at this time of year (green season!), the rivers are high and fast, the jungle is lush and green, and the animals of the forest are out to be seen.
An evening out on the town is made extra exciting by a night at the gaming tables. With plenty of glamorous, Vegas- style casinos in the area, you’re sure to have a good time and maybe even take home enough winnings to pay for your vacation! Whether black jack is your game, or maybe roulette, you’ll find plenty of exciting fun at the casinos of Jaco Beach, and surrounding areas.
Drinking and Dining
What would a vacation be without food and beverage? The foodies among us will much appreciate the abundant choices of restaurants, lounges, cafes, and bars that are available both inside of Los Sueños Resort & Marina, and out. Whether you’re looking for Italian, Japanese, French, or fusion, the area has much to offer on the food front, and you’ll be happy to enjoy all the delectable offerings, sans kiddos.
Feel like staying in for a romantic, candlelit dinner on the balcony of your luxury vacation condo, sails bobbing on the water just below? Even better! Just give your concierge team a call at HRG, and we’ll set up catering to prepare it all for you, right in your very own kitchen.
There are two wonderful day spas right in the resort, and quite a few nearby. Ask your concierge to schedule your appointments, and set up transportation while they’re at it. From Sebo Spa at the Marriott, to Blush Spa & Beauty Salon you’ve got some wonderful options that are just a golf cart ride away.
Outside the resort, spa junkies might really appreciate Serenity Spa, located just up the hill at Villas Caletas.
Don’t feel like leaving your digs? Ask them to schedule a therapist to come to your vacation villa or condo; what could be better than living in your robe for the afternoon, and then hitting the sack after a wonderful massage?
Lounging by the Pool
Finally, there’s no tropical vacation complete without a day of lounging by the pool. Whether it’s the private pool at your villa, the community pool of your condo, or the exclusive Los Sueños Beach Club (my personal favorite, as it has servers to bring me drinks and delicious snacks from Al Fresco Restaurant & Bar), a day by the pool- book and umbrella drink in hand- is a perfect way to unwind.
No kids. Just the two of you. Rest, relaxation, and fun. What more could you ask for? Book your grown-up getaway today and have a long, quiet, beautiful weekend at Los Sueños Resort. After this summer of family fun; you’ve earned it.
