THINGS TO DO IN COSTA RICA
Costa Rica has much to offer. El Castillo de Esparza (centrally located to all adventures) as the premier Villa rental in the country, offer you personal services of Ana, the full-time Concierge. Each of your trips from the Castle can be tailored and arranged by Ana. Transportation is usually by air conditioned Coaster or Van.
POOL AND JACUZZI
The pool is at the center of Castle activities. It is a large free form pool with plenty of room for swimming or lounging on floats in the warm water. Water temperatures in the pool are mostly in the mid to upper 80’s…refreshing in the warm Costa Rican sun. Swim up to the pool bar, where you will find four in pool bar stools. Your Castle bartender is ready to serve your favorites…..Margaritas….anyone?
There is also ample room for a spirited game of water volley ball, and many floats just to relax on in the warm waters. Next to the pool is a large six person Jacuzzi…….and a large patio area with sun lounges and a large sun canopy for those wanting some shade.
Sixty five meters of twists and turns down the hillside, our fiberglass water slide and splash down pool may be the biggest in Costa Rica. For kids and adults alike,the water slide is the perfect way to cool off on a warm Costa Rica afternoon.
The Castle tennis court is a hard surface standard size court. Bring your racquet, or use equipment available at courtside.
There are two large greens in the center of the Castle property with six standard golf flag sticks, proving an honest practice area with shots of twenty to fifty yards. The Castle provides a variety of wedges, and plenty of golf balls for your practice, or competition. There are several Tee locations with varying obstacles to challenge everyone.
Costa Rica has just recently been discovered as a fabulous golf destination. Within half an hour play 18 holes at a Championship Golf Course which was designed by a well know golf architect Ted Robinson. After his visit to the undeveloped site, Mr Robinson commented that he had never seen a more natural landscape for a golf course. The result is the first eco-golf that plays into specular tropical rain forest and back to the blue waters of Herradura Bay. This incredible beautiful Par-72, 696-yard golf course will challenge the best golfers. The views, tropical flowers and wildlife combine to make the Costa Rican Golf Course one the unique old experiences of a lifetime.
In the country where canopy tours through the rainforest began, you can soar through the jungle canopy like superman, or relax and enjoy the ride through the tree tops viewing the beautiful surrounding country side. Let Ana plan your excursion from transportation to tickets and take a special ride on your own schedule.
Trips are available in the jungle or the mountains. Let our experienced staff plan the trip with you. Spend a few hours or all day. Ride up to natural waterfalls or take a swim if you like .
