Amazing view at Stay In Costa Rica

You may think that my life as a traveling frog is pretty leisurely, but it can get hectic bouncing from town to town. That's why when I stayed with Stay In Costa Rica, I took full advantage of the luxury accommodations! There is virtually no reason for leaving this massive complex because everything you could want in a Costa Rica vacation can be found on the grounds. I will warn you, you're not going to want to leave this paradise! There's a reason why the complex was rated as one of the world's best by Travel + Leisure magazine.

Lodging Options

At Stay In Costa Rica, you can choose from three different, yet all very alluring, types of accommodations:

The twelve Private Homes and Villa Rentals provide peaceful escapes near the onsite golf course, the Pacific ocean or the rainforest that are still within walking distance of all the great features of Stay In Costa Rica! Choose from homes with three to eight bedrooms, each with daily maid service. Each private estate comes equipped with upscale dining areas as well as your own private pool and/or Jacuzzi! The villas are perfect for any small wedding or an extended gathering, as they offer plenty of space for entertaining.

If you still want the great views but don't need quite as much space, the Los Sueños Premium Condominiums will likely be just the right fit. With most featuring one to two bedrooms and baths, most condos also provide access to shared swimming pools, sun decks and barbecue areas. Each complex has its own special flair as well, with the Villa Artiv inspired by the movie, The Great Gatsby and the Hemingway Penthouse modeled after the spirit of - you guessed it - the famous writer.

Finally, if you´re looking for something in between, the Luxury Condos will be perfect! Encompassing between 750 to 2,000 square feet, these condos offer enough space for everyone to stretch their legs. All luxury condos are located just a short walk from the resort's main amenities, yet you have access to large pools, soothing Jacuzzis and world-class gym equipment at all times!

The Marina

Many people come to Costa Rica because of the beautiful shoreline and water activities available here, and the nearby Los Sueños Marina is one of the best off-land amenities around. The internationally acclaimed marina gives travelers easy access to calm waters where an abundance of marine life reside. There are plenty of reasons why this marina sticks out from the rest, beyond the outstanding views.

In fact, it's the only government-sanctioned marina in Costa Rica, and includes 100 dry slips and 200 wet slips that you can take advantage of with the help of the friendly on-site staff. Ever wanted to go sportfishing? This is the place to do it! The off-shore water is some of the best for sportfishing, and you can venture out to the deep blue sea on vessels that range from 30 to 180 feet. This world-class marina is strategically placed to give you direct access to the best fishing waters around trust me, it's very likely you'll catch a fish here! Plus, the marine supply store and shopping center has everything you need for an afternoon of sportfishing, and you can store anything you don't want to bring along with you at the mini self-storage units.

Los Suenos is also the site of one of the best sportfishing tournaments on the circuit, Los Sueños Signature Billfish Series. The Marlin Invitational is another popular event that locals and residents of the resort enjoy. While you might not be able to make it here during this time of year, anglers enjoy knowing that they can fish in one of the best locations in the country!

I recommend checking out the on-site restaurants if you want to grab a bite. You can also head to the bar to relax with a beverage or the cafe to sip some coffee and check out the view. The marina village features 40,000 square feet of retail space so you don't even have to leave the marina itself the entire day. If you want a nice meal, head over to El Galeon fine dining restaurant or Lanterna Ristorante Italiano, and finish your meal with some dessert at Dolce Vita Coffee and Sweets.
