Occidental Grand Papagayo

Guanacaste, Costa Rica

Treat yourself to a twilit swim in the free-form pool while you gaze upon the palm-speckled grounds of this palatial hotel. When you tire of the view (as if) shift focus to the Gulf of Papagayo where wild orange-fronted parakeets have been known to play.
