Many golfers prefer to play as many different courses as possible during their Costa Rica golf vacation. Our Golfer's Playground package offers the opportunity to play on two Central Valley courses then travel to the western beaches of Guanacaste to play on two more championship courses. Accommodations include four or five-star hotels strategically located to maximize after-hours entertainment yet within a short drive from the greens. The regions were carefully selected to combine daytime golf with some of Costa Rica's top nightlife. This Costa Rica Golf package can be customized for groups or couples by changing hotels, room types, modes of transportation, or by adding activities or spa treatments.
