1.More information about the property

Papagayo Golden Palms sits on the premier beach destination of the Gulf of Papagayo in Guanacaste, Costa Rica´s best vacation destination. With 40 spacious villas, each with its own terrace that connects the lush gardens and native plants and trees with the colorful and well-appointed inside, this is a relaxed and inviting stay.

Sitting at the far end of Panama Beach, this section is also called Chorotega Beach in recognition of the region’s original inhabitants who left their signature fishing strategy near the rocks for visitors to enjoy. This conveniently located hotel is close to Guanacaste´s favorite beaches, and tourist centers while remaining secluded and far from the madding crowds.  Lay on a hammock or by the inviting pool in the shade of the enormous Guanacaste trees and vegetation that make up the tropical gardens and landscapes.

Papagayo Golden Palms is your base camp for a world of adventure and close-to-nature activities that have put Costa Rica on the favorite-destination map of the world. Choose from exploring the calm waters of the Gulf of Nicoya or going farther afield to other beaches, wildlife-filled rivers, or live volcanoes with thrill-filled slopes.

2. Where is it located

Not only is Papagayo Golden Palms right on the beach, but it is also close to the airport, El Coco, and a world of adventure activities that have made Guanacaste such a popular tourist destination.

From the Airport: Papagayo Golden Palms is an easy 30-minute drive from the Guanacaste International Airport so you will be sitting by the pool sipping on a cocktail after landing.  Flights into the airport come from the major US hubs too so flying and driving time are quick!

Playa del Coco: This tourism hotspot is a 15-minute drive away. The main strip is full of restaurants, bars, souvenir shopping, and supermarkets. This is a fun place for a change of pace and people watching.

Papagayo Golden Palms is located on the secluded Chorotega Beach that blends into the better known Panama Beach. This means you can enjoy an extended walk or run along both for some early morning cardio, or an afternoon walk to take in the fantastic sunsets. Both beaches are perfect for swimming too!

Thanks to its convenient location, Papagayo Golden Palms is also close to the major tourist adventures. Whether you decide to visit the Rincon de la Vieja Volcano, Santa Rosa National Park, or the surfing hotspot of Tamarindo, a drive through the rural, cowboy, and agricultural towns of Guanacaste will be part of the treat.

3. What are its facilities?

Papagayo Golden Palms has a number of amenities that will make your stay even more enjoyable. With the beach and the waves just steps away, you may just want to rest on the hammocks overlooking the beach or just retire to the privacy of your room and enjoy the calm.

For those looking for some more adventure or fun, sun-kissed activities on the property, Papagayo Golden Palms has some great possibilities. Let´s see what they are.

  • Pool:

A great-sized pool sits between the restaurant and the beach giving it a strategic position. Refreshing and surrounded by palm trees shading the lounge chairs, the Papagayo Golden Palms pool is perfect for some Vitamin C and D.

  • Jacuzzi:

The jacuzzi is actually located in the middle of the pool so hop in and out of the jacuzzi for some pool time whenever you wish. This is a swim-up jacuzzi at its best!

  • Kids Pool:

Just by the big-kids pool, is the smaller kids and babies pool with its own slippery slide for the young ones.

  • Restaurant:

Overlooking the pool area, the open-air restaurant is where dining is delicious and delightful! With a Costa Rican-inspired menu with modern twists. Fresh ingredients and innovative meals make dining part of the Papagayo Golden Palms treat.

  • Bar:

Just off the restaurant with views of the pool and the beach, enjoy a tropical cocktail, cold beer, or a refreshing beverage to complement the Papagayo Golden Palms experience.
