Labor Day weekend is nearly here and you deserve a break! After all that hard work, it's time to reward yourself with a long weekend away at Los Sueños Resort & Marina, costa Rica. Considering the number of short, direct flights from the U.S. to Costa Rica, there's no reason you shouldn't do it!
Here's a short list of things to do over a three or four day weekend at Los Sueños Resort & Marina:
Los Sueños Resort & Marina is one of the best offshore sport-fishing destinations in all of Central America, Mexico, or the Bahamas. For a full day or half day out on the water, just reach out to the HRG Vacations Concierge Team and we'll hook you up with a charter. English speaking captains and crews, snacks and drinks on board, and an exciting day of fishing for Black, blue and striped marlin, sail fish, tuna, dorado, and wahoo – what more could you ask for?
Go snorkeling at Tortuga Island!
For a day of fun on the water, Tortuga Island is just about 45 minutes offshore and full of adventurous things to do. Grab some snorkel gear and check out the schools of brightly colored fish that are abundant around the rock, or better yet, the famous sunken boat!
Sip on a delicious Coco Loco (a run drink made with coconut water and served in the coconut) while the island's resident peccary, a distant relative of the native pig, will come up to have his belly scratched and take any fruit offerings you might have to give him.
Rock climbing, banana boat rides, stand up paddle, and kayaking are just a few of the other fun activities you'll be able to enjoy while on the island. Great for a day trip, HRG can arrange it all; just reach out and ask!
Learn to Surf!
Jaco Beach, just 10 minutes outside the gates of Los Sueños Resort & Marina, is one of the best places in the area to learn how to surf. With gentle waves that are not too much for a beginner, kids and adults alike will have a great time learning the ins and outs of surfing, safety trips, and then finally catching a wave or two.
Surf board rentals are easy to come by in downtown Jaco, and instructors are right behind them. You can book your lessons through the HRG offices, or just head to Jaco and walk downtown he street- you're bound to find plenty of offerings.
Learn to Stand Up Paddle!
Herradura Bay, just outside of Los Sueños resort is a perfect place to do a little Stand Up Paddle Boarding as the cove and marina keep the waters smooth. Board rentals are readily available on the beach in Herradura, and instructors are just as easy to come by. A fun activity for the entire family – not to mention a great workout for grown ups!- Stand Up Paddle has become all the rage in the last ten years.
In addition to the beautiful landscape and its colorful exotic inhabitants, the nightlife in and around the Los Sueños Resort includes more than dinner and clubbing; it's teaming with Las Vegas style casinos too.
The Tárcoles River is one of the most densely populated crocodile rivers in the world, and home to crocodiles from tiny baby size, and up to 17 feet long! From the safety of the river boat, you'll spot crocodiles of all sizes up close and personal, a plethora of different kinds of exotic birds, iguanas, lizards, monkeys, anteaters and more!
Experience the sight of a crocodile feeding, right up close, and learn about the river, the mangrove forest and all of its inhabitants. Tours leave five times per day and you can contact them directly to make reservations.
Have a spa day!
There is nothing quite that says, "I'm on vacation" like getting an in-room spa treatment such as a massage, manicure, pedicure, body scrub, or wrap. Working with only the best in the area, our concierge team at HRG will set you up with the pampered day of your dreams, arranging for expert services from talented local providers, right in the privacy of your vacation rental condo or villa.
