A concerted development project by the government given Gulf of Papagayo a growing number of luxury and all inclusive resort complexes and turned it into one of the country's leading holiday destinations.
Get outdoors at Playa Avellana and Playa Conchal. Explore the numerous day-trip ideas around Gulf of Papagayo: Playa Hermosa (in Playa Hermosa), Costa Rica Sailing Center (in Playa Potrero) and Playa Flamingo (Los Piratas de Flamingo & Dolphin & Whale Watching). Spend the 21st (Wed) among the fascinating landscape of Parque Nacional Volcan Rincon de la Vieja. Saddle up on the 22nd (Thu) and explore with a tour on horseback. There's much more to do: admire all the interesting features of Pura Aventura, have some family-friendly fun at Hacienda El Roble & Adventure Center, explore the striking landscape of Las Baulas National Marine Park, and take in the exciting artwork at Rojas Bros Boruca Indigenous Arts.
