With February still a month away, it may seem much too early to think about a Valentine’s day get-away to Los Sueños Resort and Marina. However, it falls smack in the middle of Costa Rica’s high season and early booking is essential for a successful romantic vacation. As a master-planned community, Los Sueños is a tropical paradise perched on the crystalline blue waters of the Pacific coast set against the backdrop of a tropical rainforest. Los Sueños, literally meaning dreams, is the perfect setting for romance as you drift through magical days and nights. For your Valentine’s Day treat, try Sibö Rainforest Spa and Retreat where the private rooms overlooking exotic gardens provide an intimate atmosphere for a couple’s massage. Take an extra half hour for an indulgent shower or a soak in a tub for two. The resort’s private Beach Club features shade palapas on an elevated, white sand beach overlooking the Marina and Herradura Bay. Other amenities for a languorous day in the sun include pool, Jacuzzi, shower and changing facilities, expansive decks, fountains and a swim-up bar. Finish off a perfect day by booking a private chef for your intimate candlelight dinner for two on the terrace of your luxury Los Sueños condo for complete privacy will make it an evening to remember. For a livelier evening, try any of the resort restaurants for excellent food, soft lights and music, warm tropical breezes and exemplary service. Throughout your stay at Los Sueños Resort, there are plenty of outdoor activities for two to keep you busy.
- Kayak along the coastline to stunning Playa Agujas; you’ll find the scenery is fabulous.
