This week the whole crew is in Costa Rica staying at the Riu Guanacaste. This year is a big year for the family. It is Billy and Frances' 25th Wedding Anniversary and both Alexander and David both graduated. So, this trip is the celebrate us.
The blog posts will be short and sweet as I try to show some of the things we do while we are here. Stay tuned, we plan on seeing as much of Costa Rica as we can in a few days.
These images are from our room balcony. We seem to be properly situated to see the sunset. Sunrise is another story.

This fully equipped hotel offers guests the best service in addition to a fresh water swimming pool, Jacuzzi, gym, sauna and the “Renova Spa” centre with a range of different treatments and massages. Everything you could need to guarantee the maximum well-being during your stay.
The quality of the cuisine prepared by the chefs in our restaurants goes hand in hand with a wide variety of flavours on offer at this hotel, which will make you want to sample all our menus. The All Inclusive system gives you the opportunity to try out the buffet restaurant and the various themed restaurants on offer at the hotel.
If your stay is for work or business reasons, the Hotel Riu Guanacaste is ideal for you. It has five conference rooms, which are modern and fully equipped, allowing you to hold meetings or conferences in a professional and simple way, not to mention the range of services available.
From its prime location, the hotel offers a wide range of activities on its beautiful beaches such as diving or fishing in the Pacific Ocean and ecotourism in the volcanic regions. During the day, we also offer you several entertainment programs for all ages, whether you’re travelling with your family, as a couple or with friends. The hotel includes a gym, table tennis, volleyball, a tennis court, windsurfing, sailing, snorkelling, kayaking and other water activities. If your favourite sporting activity is Golf, the Four Seasons golf club boasts fantastic views over the ocean and a challenging course.
Guanacaste is less tropical, humid and lush than the rest of the country. Its dry grasslands and woods are sometimes reminiscent of landscapes from the African savannah. In the inland areas, you’ll see the natives, local cowboys riding on their horses as they lead their herds, which are authentic figures of the destination’s traditional culture. From the hotel, we offer several excursions which are not to be missed such as a visit to Rincón de la Vieja nature park, the Safari Park or the capital of Guanacaste: Liberia.
