Nestled along the palm-fringed sands of Peninsula Papagayo’s Playa Prieta, a short complimentary 7 minutes drive you will discover Prieta Beach Club & Spa. Open guests, this casual oasis is situated in a naturally sheltered cove making it the perfect place to snorkel, playing in the waves or stroll along shore. Facilities include a lap pool, a beachfront bar,and a restaurant
On the south side, Playa Blanca faces Bahia de Culebra, where the waves are slightly rougher and the atmosphere is busier. The water sports pavilion can supply equipment and instruction for an enticing array of activities – from snorkeling and sea kayaking to sailing and sailboarding.
On the north side of the peninsula, Playa Virador faces the Pacific Ocean, yet remains calm with gentle waves. This quiet beach is interspersed with only a few chaises lounges chairs to offer a sense of solitude and seclusion.
The unique location straddled between two beaches gives you more to explore with the one you love – and only a 3 minute walk with the pools located in the middle will give you the time to explore all.
For the ultimate couples retreat choose a one-bedroom plunge pool suite, offering a private balcony, small pool to cool off in, and wide sweeping views of the Pacific ocean all nestled in the hillside of the rain forest.
