A Day With The Family at Los Sueños Resort

Beach Club Los Sueños Resort Costa Rica

Los Sueños is so full of fun things to do, you don’t even have to leave the resort

Los Sueños Resort & Marina, beautifully overlooking Herradura Bay in the central Pacific of Costa Rica, is probably as close as you can get to the perfect place to vacation in Costa Rica. Though there are so many eco-adventure activities nearby that you’ll be hard pressed to find some down time, there is also much to do right in the resort; if you do feel like taking a break from all that river rafting, ATVing, hiking, horseback riding, and Zip-lining, you can hang right in Los Sueños for a day and still have an amazing time with the entire gang. Her is our top 10 list of fun things to do in a day at Los Sueños Resort & Marina:

  1. Part of the fun in staying at Los Sueños is zipping around in a golf cart all day… golf carts are readily available. Just ask your concierge at HRG and we’ll hook you up!
  2. Prepare an amazing breakfast in the well-equipped gourmet kitchen of your vacation villa or condo; then, enjoy it out on the terrace as you gaze out at the ocean and marina, or across the greens to the forest, and savor a rich cup of Costa Rican coffee.
  3. Head for a few rounds of golf with the entire family- watch for the iguanas, red lapas, toucans and monkeys that will keep you company during your game.
  4. Have lunch outdoors at Bamboo Sushi, alongside the marina; or, eat at La Lanterna on the patio in Marina Village. After lunch, take a stroll along the board walk and check out all the amazing boats that are docked in the marina.
  5. In the early afternoon, head for the exclusive Los Sueños Beach Club. A huge free form swimming pool, with an equally large and shallow “kiddie pool” area, as well as Jacuzzi, the Beach Club is a great place to hang for the afternoon as you enjoy snacks and drinks brought to you at your lounge chair.  Between Al Fresco Restaurant, the swim- up bar and attentive beach club wait staff, you won’t be left wanting for great snacks, meals and drinks.
  6. In the late afternoon, it’s time to head for ice cream cones and sweet treats at La Dulce Vita in the Marina Village. Afterwards, take a stroll around and do a little shopping. At Marina Village, you’ll find an art gallery, a design store, a beach basics and bathing suit shop, Los Sueños wine and spirits, Jimmy T’s gourmet market, souvenir shops and more.
  7. As the late afternoon gloaming sets in, grab a sunset cruise out of Los Sueños Marina, a great way to enjoy the end of the day with drinks and dolphin watching.
  8. Not into boating? A really perfect way to wrap up the day is with a nice long massage at either of the two on-site day spas or right in your own luxury condo or vacation villa. Reservations and appointments can be arranged through your concierge.
  9. After coming in from your sunset cruise, or that wonderful massage, get dressed up (don’t worry, nice shorts and a shirt, or summer dress and sandals will be dressy enough- you’re on vacation!) and head for El Galeon for dinner; its al fresco dining area, amazing food, and exemplary service will leave you feeling pampered.
  10. After dinner, a quiet evening spent “at home” with the family playing charades or Uno is a great way to spend the evening. Or, if you feel like getting out, a night of drinking, dancing and gaming at one of the local casinos is always lots of fun. Need a sitter for the kids? Not a problem; ask your concierge at HRG and they’ll help arrange someone reliable.

With so much to see and do right inside Los Sueños, you don’t even have to leave the resort; but, you’ll want to. Still, it’s always nice to have a relaxing day right at “home.”

kid jumping into pool Costa Rica

Los Sueños Resort & Marina is the perfect place for the family during spring break 2017

Family time at Los Sueños Resort & Marina during Spring break is easy and relaxed; parents will never hear the dreaded words, “I’m bored!” or “There’s nothing to do!” during a family vacation in Costa Rica- especially when staying at Los Sueños. Here are eight things to do that the kids will love about Spring Break at Los Sueños Resort in Costa Rica. Make friends Kids can make new friends at The Beach club. The beach club has a swim-up bar, large pool, volley ball court and play ground —plenty to keep them occupied. Swim Each Los Sueños Resort community has its own community pool; and sometimes several! Also, vacation villas often have a private pool. The resort’s fantastic Beach Club, a $3 million facility, is exclusive to residents and guests and features a massive free-form swimming pool complete with a huge shallow end for little ones, a swim up bar, the Al Fresco Restaurant, a raised white sand beach, shaded palapas, lounge chairs, tables, great service and more. Mount up A horseback ride to a nearby waterfall at La Quinta Farm has the plant life, wildlife and staggeringly beautiful views to impress everyone, including the kids. A dip in the mineral spring’s waterfall will refresh the entire gang before the ride home. This tour is great for families, as it is suitable for ages 5 and up. Boating Head to the marina, or Herradura Bay, for cruises and charters. Some on-the-water adventures include diving, snorkeling, stand-up paddleboards, and outrigger canoes. The Tortuga Island cruise offers snorkeling and lunch on a semi-private beach. La Fragata Sailing Club offers private lessons, weekend classes and holiday camps suitable for ages 6 – 16. Of course, for those families with older kids and teens, Sport fishing is an incredible way to spend the day at Los Sueños Resort. Zip-lining Jungle canopy tours are suitable for children 7 and older. Guides accompany the group along the cables to help ensure safety and a positive experience.  For the very young or less adventurous, the aerial tram is a great way to see the forest canopy and guides are available to point out animals and explain forest ecology. Touring on wheels Hop aboard an ATV, mountain bike, or a dune buggy and ride along jungle trails while expert guides share their knowledge of the terrain and its inhabitants. Two tours will take the whole family to waterfalls, rainforest and the beach. These tours are best suited to families with older children. Whitewater Rafting on the Savegre River is for families with kids ages 8 and older. The Class II/III river runs through primary rainforest for an exhilarating ride from a different point of view. Professional river guides provide all the equipment, instruction and supervision to keep your family safe. Hiking Nearby Manuel Antonio and Carara National Parks bring the wildlife into focus and are perfect hiking trails for the entire family as they are easy and fairly short. Manuel Antonio features level, paved paths and white-sand beaches. Nearby Carara National Park is where Amazonian and Mesoamerican ecosystems meet, forming a distinctive biological habitat.   From breakfast to dinnertime, there’s plenty to keep the kids occupied in and around Los Sueños Resort & Marina. In fact, if your kids are old enough, they can drive themselves, via golf cart, around the resort which a whole lot of fun all by itself. When you book, just ask the concierge staff for recommendations and to help with booking.

Best Sport Fishing Music For the Los Sueños Triple Crown

Sport Fishing_1

A day out on the water from Los Sueños Marina demands a great music play list for the right sport fishing frame of mind

Some occasions demand a great music play list and a day’s sport fishing charter out of Los Sueños Resort is one of them. In just ten days, Leg III of the Los Sueños Signature Triple Crown competition will begin, and we’ve put together the perfect soundtrack for you and your team. Given the distance from shore, it’s unlikely that streaming services such as Spotify, Pandora, SoundCloud or Apple Music will do you much good—cell service/Wi-Fi will probably be spotty; perhaps even non-existent. The best bet is to buy and download from digital music and store it on your phone or other smart device. MP3 Mixx is a good low-cost source, while music lovers prefer eMusic.com. The Apple Store, Google’s Play Store and Amazon are also treasure troves of your favorite tunes. If your captain has a good sound system aboard, you can probably play a CD you’ve burned; if he has a great system, you’ll be able to connect via Bluetooth to blast your jams. Find out in advance; you may need to bring along a good waterproof, Bluetooth speaker. In order to save you some time and effort in your music search we’ve put together our favorite playlist for a day out on the water. Shoving off:

Owning a Piece of Paradise: The Benefits of Buying a Vacation Home in Los Sueños Costa Rica

RST_5215

Owning a vacation home in Los Sueños Resort delivers so much more than a convenient place to land when you want to visit Costa Rica.

So many people visit Los Sueños Resort in Costa Rica and dream of owning a vacation condo or home here.  HRG Vacations can help make it happen. Just about an hour’s drive from San José, Los Sueños Resort & Marina showcases luxury condos, villas and sprawling eco-friendly homes—each one with spectacular ocean, jungle, mountain, marina or fairway views. The private resort community sits within a 600-acre rainforest reserve, with plenty to do and see on-site: restaurants, bars and lounges, an 18-hole championship golf course, spa, marina, plenty of retail shops and services.

The region around Los Sueños Resort is a narrow coastal plain fronted by the crystal-clear blue waters of the Pacific and backed rainforest-clad mountains. The surfing beaches extend south to Dominical and beyond. To the north, lie the dry tropical forests of Guanacaste and the cloud forest reserves of Monteverde.

Los Sueños is one of the most popular resorts in Costa Rica. The benefits of vacation home at Los Sueños don’t stop with a luxury base for your own vacations in Costa Rica; location, convenience, income-generation, tax-savings, and a jump-start on an unrivaled ex-pat retirement lifestyle also come into play.

Renting your second home to Costa Rica vacationers can help offset mortgage and maintenance costs, generating income when you’re not using the property. Rental fees vary, but during peak season weekly rental fees equal or exceed the monthly mortgage payment. You may break even with an annual occupancy of about 30% in terms of cash flow.

Depending on personal use versus rental, tax benefits vary. If you rent out your property 14 days or less in a year, you can treat the mortgage on your second home the same as the mortgage on your primary residence. Consult a tax professional or review IRS Publication 527 on vacation rentals for advice on your specific tax situation.

HRG Vacations will take care of marketing and renting out your vacation rental, along with seeing to all the needs of your vacation rental guests. HRG Properties and Rentals can also handle immediate response needs, regular maintenance, and payments for utilities, HOA fees and insurance.

6 Romantic Things To Do During Your Valentine’s Day Escape at Los Sueños Resort

couple holding hands sunset Costa Rica

Valentine’s Day is the perfect time to escape to Los Sueños Resort Costa Rica

This Valentine’s day, make it extra special and escape to Los Sueños Resort. Romance abounds at Los Sueños and its so perfect, you won’t even need to leave the resort. Here are our top 6 favorite things to do for a romantic holiday away at Los Sueños, Costa Rica.

Spend time forest or ocean gazing on your private terrace; enjoy meals al fresco, read a good book, make out on the couch or hammock… the romantic possibilities are endless.

Candle-light dinners are always a romance booster and at Los Sueños Resort you can enjoy one in the privacy of your luxury condo or at one of the many wonderful restaurant options available right on the property. Want to get out on the town for a bit? We love El Hicaco for romantic candle lit dinner right on the beach (great wine list; even better food!).

A unique local experience is always fun and romantic. Sunset drum circles often take place on the beach down on the South end of town, there is weekly surf contest at The Backyard Bar & Grill (complete with barbecue and live music) each Saturday afternoon, and there is a live DJ playing house music on the beach until Sunset on Fridays and Saturdays followed by live music on the beach after dark- all right in front of El Hicaco Restaurant (yep, that means you can catch a show while you dine!).

There isn’t much more relaxing and romantic than a Couples Massage; arrange it through your concierge at HRG for an appointment in your vacation villa or condo or at one of the 2 local day spas located within Los Sueños Resort.

A sunset horseback ride on the beach or an afternoon ride to a nearby waterfall both fall into line with perfection in romance. Just ask; the team at HRG can arrange everything for you.

Adventure and adrenalin never fail to get romance raging and your concierge can connect you with reservations for an amazing zip line canopy tour, ATV ride through the jungle or a day of white water river rafting.

Leg 1 of the 2017 Los Sueños Triple Crown Results Are In

Trolling fishing boat rod and golden saltwater reels

Another stellar year for the Los Sueños Triple Crown Billfish Series: 2017 does it again

It was congratulations all around at the Los Sueños Signature Triple Crown awards banquet on Saturday, January 21, 2017. The Los Sueños Beach Club hosted 237 anglers, who came off of 50 boats, after they released 997 billfish during the first leg of the three-leg competition: 785 sailfish and 212 blue and striped marlin. Day 1 of the competition saw Tranquilo in the lead, Tarheel in second and Agitator in third. By the end of Day 2, Tranquilo was still in the lead and Agitator had moved up to second with Blue Eagle in third on time. Xta Sea would change everything by lines out on Day 3. The Team Xta Sea, with Alexis and Julio Chamorro, Emilio Munkel and Jacob Graves and captained by Ronnie Riebe released 18 billfish, including 12 marlin, to win first place with 6,600 points. Agitator released 30 sails and 7 marlin for a total of 6,500 points to finish second. En Joy reeled in third place with 6,400 points: 19 sails and 8 marlin. The marlin made all the difference in scoring for Xta Sea, giving them a slight point advantage that Agitator and Reel Screamer couldn’t quite catch. Although the bite was off previous years’ record breaking numbers, Leg I 2017’s marlin release (212) eclipsed 2016 (15). The first four years in the tournament’s history saw astonishing numbers for billfish releases. The Triple Crown’s predecessor tournament, Los Sueños Signature Billfish Series, ran for 10 consecutive and very successful years. In their 15th tournament year, Los Sueños has clearly demonstrated it knows how to host a tournament. Costa Rica’s Central Pacific coastline is one of the best global fisheries and Los Sueños Resort and Marina on Herradura Bay is a short cruise across usually calm waters to one of the top-ranked billfisheries in the world. The Billfish Report ranked the area Number 1 in 2015 and 2016. The Triple Crown includes three legs, one during each of January, February and March. The teams are back at Los Sueños Feb. 22, for Leg II. Leg III sets sail March 22. For more tournament information, follow Los Sueños on Facebook or Twitter (@Lossuenosresort) or visit the official Los Sueños Tournament page.

triple_crown

At Last: 2017 The Los Sueños Signature Triple Crown  is here

 

The Billfish Report recently named the waters off of Los Sueños Resort & Marina the Number One Bill Fishery in the World for 2015 and 2016, with good reason. The calm waters and short cruising time to the fishing grounds off Los Sueños Marina make it one of the most productive fisheries in the world. After the hugely successful Los Sueños Signature Billfish Series for 10 consecutive years and the annual Los Sueños Signature Triple Crown Billfish Tournament for three years, expectations are high for the fourth annual Triple Crown. Leg I of III kicks off January 18, 2017.

Team registration begins at 1 p.m., Wednesday, Jan. 18, at the tournament tent on the lawn in front of The Hook Up. Light snacks and beverages will be available there as team members mingle, catch up and trade anecdotes about recent catches. Captains and observers have mandatory meetings until 6 p.m., but anglers and their supporters can enjoy a sundowner, or two, at The Hook Up or any of the restaurants and bars in the Marina Village.

Days 2 and 3 begin early: Boats can leave the marina and go to the fishing grounds at 6:00 a.m. Or, as soon as Tournament Control confirms all observers have checked in and are aboard each boat. Lines will be in at 8 a.m. and out by 4 p.m. Scorecards are due to the Tournament Committee by 7 p.m.

After fishing, dockside cocktails and hors d’oeuvres will be available at the tournament tent next to The Hook Up.

Day 4 is a repeat of the previous two days, except for the awards banquet and ceremony at Los Sueños hottest venue, The Los Sueños Beach Club.

The Los Sueños Resort & Marina the premier luxury resort and marina in Costa Rica.
