Costa Rica's Bahia del Sol Offers a Boutique Getaway
This boutique hotel stands at the end of a quiet country road, far from the busy surf towns of Guanacaste. On a gold-speckled morning by the water, it's no wonder why it's called “Bay of the Sun.”

But Bahia del Sol is more than a breathtaking ocean vista: Guests are treated to generous apartments, fully equipped kitchens, and balconies that overlook a labyrinth of tropical gardens. A chorus of exotic birds welcomes you each morning. Walkways invite you to take a stroll with a cup of rich local coffee. And every deep tissue massage takes place in the Nau Spa, an air-conditioned cottage nestled among those primeval trees. The only way to get closer to nature is to enjoy aromatherapy in the middle of an actual rainforest.

Speaking of which, Bahia del Sol takes enormous pride in its sustainable adventure tours. Unlike large commercial resorts, Bahia del Sol caters to small groups, ensuring an intimate experience as you ride horses down the beach, zip-line through the canopy, or soak in natural hot springs. Rest assured: Whether you ride an ATV through the glen or cast a reel on a sport fishing boat, Bahia del Sol's tours have minimal negative impact on the environment.

Bahia del Sol is a cozy hotel with a lot of history (it used to be private social club), and each guest receives superlative one-on-one service. The staff will greet you by name as they set down expertly presented entrees crafted from local ingredients, including fresh seafood caught in area waters. The open-air dining and rotating menu are hallmarks of the Bahia del Sol experience.

This personal touch is just one reason why Bahia del Sol hosts so many weddings: The groomed green lawns, swaying palm trees, and Pacific sunsets are the perfect backdrop for a ceremony in the tropics, and packages include photography services, airport transport, gourmet rehearsal dinners, and in-house coordination, making the planning process as easy as possible. Bahia del Sol is also a dreamy place to honeymoon, thanks to the hotel's special suites, private Jacuzzis, and couples massages. Bahia del Sol is even offering a special package – book the Honeymoon Suite for five days, and your nuptials are free.

With its meditative atmosphere and luxurious accommodations, Bahia del Sol is Costa Rica at its most "tranquilo".
