How to plan the perfect thanksgiving weekend away with the family in Los Sueños Costa Rica
Thanksgiving is a terrific time to plan a four-day weekend away in Costa Rica; why not grab the entire family and book a nice spacious vacation villa or family condo through HRG Vacations at Los Sueños Resort?
There are a number of great restaurant options in the area for that traditional Turkey dinner; typically, El Galleon serves terrific traditional fare for the holiday, but with six amazing restaurants to choose right in Los Sueños Resort’s own Marina Village, you can also go for something a little more on the non-traditional side, like Italian or Sushi. Jaco Beach, right next door, has a bounty of options to choose from too, and according to one reviewer on TripAdvisor, Lemon Zest Restaurant serves “the best Thanksgiving dinner ever.”
Still, restaurant thanksgivings don’t always feel quite traditional enough and the food just isn’t quite the same as Mom’s or Grandma’s. If you’re looking to create your own Thanksgiving feast in your own home away from home, that’s easy to do too.
Plan ahead by sending a shopping list to your concierge team at HRG Vacations. We can stock your fridge and pantry before you arrive with all the ingredients you need, plus breakfast foods, wine, and beer too.
Or, if you get here with plenty of time to spare, you can easily do your own shopping for those dinner preparations. Between Pricesmart and Don Fernando’s Meats (before you leave San Jose), Jimmy T’s Provisions Gourmet Shop right in the Marina Village, and Automercado just down the street, you’ll have plenty of resources for all the ingredients you need to create the perfect traditional family Thanksgiving banquet.
Want the best of both worlds (as in, no cooking and no restaurant reservations either)? Touch base with our team and arrange for a private chef or catered Thanksgiving dinner for you and the gang right there in your vacation villa or condo; it’s as easy as asking when you make your vacation rental reservation. We can either make all the arrangements for you or put you directly in touch with any number of terrific private chefs or caterers in the area.
Thanksgiving is a wonderful time for friends, family and chosen family to get together, give thanks for all of the abundances in our lives, share some laughter, watch some football and make some memories. Why not do something a little extra fun this year? Make it a long weekend, Thanksgiving escape to paradise. Make it Thanksgiving in Costa Rica.
