The Inspirato Collection features hundreds of stunning vacation homes in equally as beautiful destinations around the world. Among the most unique of these locations is Costa Rica’s Peninsula Papagayo. Located on the country’s northwestern coast, this paradise is beloved for its breathtaking natural beauty, which the area’s award-winning resorts preserve through eco-friendly accommodations and activities.
Inspirato members and guests are certainly fans of Peninsula Papagayo. Members regularly mention the diverse wildlife as a highlight: “We saw howler monkeys and white face monkeys almost every day on the hotel property,” one wrote. Others love the adrenaline-pumping activities, like zip lining and kayaking. There’s no shortage of luxury either, with fine dining and acclaimed golf courses nearby.
Peninsula Papagayo is truly a destination with something for everyone. Below, see what two Inspirato members had to say about their experiences in this lush jungle oasis.
Member Tracey Quance took her family to the gorgeous destination and took advantage of the many activities in the area. “I cannot say enough about how happy we were with this vacation!” Tracey wrote. “Everything from booking, working with the Inspirato Destination Concierge, the residence, our all-day tour, private chef services and our transport to and from the airport was simply amazing. The staff at the resort were impressively attentive.”
The seamless experience proved to be a favorite for the whole family. “A definite win for my husband and I, our 21-year-old daughter and her friend and our 13-year-old son!”
Even with so much to do, Peninsula Papagayo’s beauty is also an ideal backdrop for a more intimate experience. “Our trip to Costa Rica was only a few days but we certainly packed in a lot of memories,” member Thomas Niles wrote. “We loved the zip line tours, caught big Mahi Mahi’s fishing off shore, and enjoyed feeding the animals on the safari tour.”
Hanging out their Inspirato home provided plenty of ways to stay entertained too. “The house was beautiful,” Thomas wrote. “In the evening we would watch the wildlife in the trees from the back deck while sitting in the hot tub. Sunsets from the top of the hill were amazing. Can’t wait to return and bring the kids with us next time.”
