San José accommodations: Grano de Oro – 1 night

  • The glorious Grano de Oro was once a tropical Victorian mansion. Now, it’s a 40-room hotel just off the main Paseo Colon in the city, a stone’s throw from museums and the bustling urban culture of San Jose. A highlight is the rooftop garden terrace, providing secluded lounging with lawn beds and 2 Jacuzzis.

Arenal Volcano accommodations: Nayara Springs – 3 nights

  • Awards for Nayara Springs include many of Travel & Leisure’s “best” accolades. Located in the emerald rainforests of Arenal Volcano, Nayara Springs is an adults-only romantic getaway. Private plunge pools, dual rain showers, and indoor/outdoor sitting areas all contribute to the intimacy of the suites. Other highlights include upscale spa amenities, and top-flight meals served a plush, purple-hued dining room.

Manuel Antonio Beach accommodations: Los Altos Resort & Spa – 4 nights

  • Multiple elements underscore the lure of Los Altos. The grounds are inspiring, the infinity pool has an ocean view, the spa is deluxe, and the resort has its own private beach. The suites themselves — inspired by Balinese architecture — have additional winning touches, such as floor-to-ceiling windows and spacious balconies.
