Why We Love This Deal

Lush green jungle and Pacific Ocean views set the backdrop at this intimate adults-only Costa Rican resort situated in one of the world's blue zones (geographic regions where residents live longer, healthier lives). Public rates are nearly $550 per night at this resort in this sought-after locale, but we've negotiated the lowest rates around exclusively for Travelzoo members, who can stay for just $379 per night.

Tap into the fountain of youth with a relaxing 3-night (or longer) stay complete with villa accommodations with a private plunge pool and daily breakfast. Guests will also have access to wellness activities and amenities including yoga classes and spa treatments (fees apply).
