I have previously profiled the range of activities for corporate groups in Costa Rica; today, I'm looking at some of Costa Rica's rainforest and beach resorts.
At Nayara Hotel, Spa & Gardens, casitas, suites and villas are set in a lush, rainforest overlooking Arenal Volcano. Rooms offer Wi-Fi, private gardens with rain showers and secluded terraces with Jacuzzis.
Eco tours and outdoor adventures are available nearby.
This 337-room resort on Mansita Beach has 4 meeting rooms offering 7,223 square feet of function space. It has 2 meeting rooms: Classroom-style, Pacuare has a capacity of 170 and Tabacon accommodates 120 participants.
On-site activities include golf, workouts in the fitness center, snorkeling and kayaking.
With 120 guest rooms, 35 suites and 21 villas, this hillside resort with 2 on-site beaches and 3 swimming pools has 4 meetings rooms and El Armadillo, a 4,035-square-foot outdoor tropical event pavilion. There are 3 private cabanas for rent.
Golf, surfing, scuba diving, snorkeling, and catamaran excursions are available on property.
