4 Things to do during a romantic escape at Los Sueños Resort . 

Romance is in the air and an escape to beautiful Los Sueños Resort couldn’t be more perfect. 

Just over an hour outside of San Jose and from the Juan Santamaria International Airport in Costa Rica, the resort is perfect for a weekend getaway. 

Travel has been limited this last year and a mini-vacation is much deserved. Los Sueños has everything you need to create a perfect weekend oasis for you and your significant other.

What could be better this Valentine’s day than an escape to Los Sueños Resort & Marina in Herradura, Costa Rica?

Here are four ways to enjoy the warmth, sunshine, ocean air, and lush surroundings of beautiful Los Sueños Resort. 

  1. Enjoy a romantic dinner for two, right on your own terrace.

You’ll enjoy soothing views of the marina, golf course, and/or lush Costa Rica rainforest from any of the spacious luxury condominiums and sprawling, entertainment-focused vacation villas in Los Sueños Resort. 

All of our vacation rental homes feature spacious, well-equipped kitchens and comfortable outdoor living, lounging, or dining spaces. Likewise, every condo or home boasts a formal dining room. 

If you’re looking for a beautiful space where the two of you can cook a romantic meal together, you’ll need to look no further than your own condo rental and vacation villa kitchen. 

Jimmy T’s  Gourmet Grocery has all the goodies you might need and if he doesn’t, Automercado is just down the road in the Herradura plaza. You’ll find an excellent wine selection, imported goods, fresh fish and grass-fed meats or poultry, an abundance of fruits and vegetables, and a bakery -  just about any ingredients you can think of to create the perfect meal.

Don’t feel like cooking while on vacation? Not a problem.

Reach out to your concierge at HRG and we can connect you with a private chef who will come to your vacation home or condo and prepare a meal that will delight the senses. No muss, no fuss, they will handle everything from meal preparation to serving and cleanup.

All you have to do is sit back and enjoy. Better yet? Why not book a couple's massage for either before or after dinner? We can't think of a better way to top off the evening!

  1. Take a romantic sunset sailing cruise

What could be more romantic than a sunset cruise on the calm Pacific waters outside of Herradura Bay, Costa Rica?  

Imagine a warm breeze blowing through your hair, gazing out at the sparkling blue waters of the Central Pacific coast, sipping champagne, and snacking on bocas - just the two of you and one of the most romantic settings one can think of. 

Each tour lasts about three hours and the sunset cruise includes snacks and soft drinks. Don’t forget to bring your camera - it’s not unusual to see dolphins and other marine wildlife while out on the water. 

Rather be getting a massage and preparing to go out to dinner in the evening? Day cruises are available too and they include a stop for snorkeling along with snacks and soft drinks.

Tours vary and depart daily from Herradura Bay and capacity is limited due to social distancing protocols. 

  • Bring: Towels, beach wrap, swimsuits, bug spray, sunscreen, romantic music, and anything else you might want to make your cruise experience as comfortable and romantic as possible.

  • Wear: Sneakers, comfortable clothes, hat, sunglasses.

  1. Enjoy a beautiful day lounging by the beach at nearby Alma Del Pacifico

Beautiful, relaxing, and right on the beach, Alma Del Pacifico is just down the road from Los Sueños Resort in a small beach town called Esterillos. 

Definitely worth a day trip to enjoy the facilities and the gorgeous beach, the resort boasts an excellent restaurant with first-class service, sumptuous cuisine and an excellent wine list, and lounge chairs and hammocks right on the sand under the almond trees. 

A good beach for surfing (especially if you’re a beginner) or boogie boarding, long walks, sunsets, and lounging, we can’t think of a better place to hang on the beach for the day. 

Call or email your HRG concierge for scheduling; we can arrange transportation and book your day-stay at Alma del Pacifico. 

  1. Take a beautiful jungle and waterfall hike

If you and your partner are an active couple that enjoys the great outdoors, you will love this hiking tour through the Costa Rican rainforest and up to a majestic waterfall.

A half-day tour, first you’ll enjoy an authentic Costa Rica breakfast complete with our famous Gallo Pinto and rich Costa Rican coffee. Then you’ll head up the mountain for your adventure. 

After a short downhill trek, you’ll hike up the river along trails and bridges to take advantage of the smaller waterfalls and natural pools. 

There are four unique swimming holes to cool off in the fresh mountain spring water. 

And, what could be more romantic than submerging yourselves under the falls for an invigorating water massage? 

For the more adventurous, there are places to jump into the pools from heights of up to 25 feet!

Valentine's Day falls on a Sunday this year, which makes for a great excuse to take a long weekend and head for Los Sueños Resort & Marina. 

Whether you're flying in from the States or are just driving over from San Jose, the resort is conveniently located close by - fast and easy to get to so you spend your time enjoying nature and sunshine, rather than traveling. 

Reach out today and book your romantic getaway; the ocean and rainforest are waiting for you!
