Adult-Focused Vacations for All Tastes

Most travelers assume that the only adult-only destinations cater only to couples.

It’s true that there is a great variety of romantic packages for special occasions. Honeymoons, anniversaries, or simple but necessary escapades are all full of possibility.

If you are traveling with friends or by yourself, there are exciting options too.

Make a bachelorette party extra special with a trip to the tropics, or celebrate your graduation with a well-deserved adventure. Summer and Christmas are also great moments to visit Costa Rica and admire the natural wonders and warm culture it offers.

Regardless of your intention, there is somewhere to go without the extra-noise that other people’s children can make.

Make the most of your adult-only package vacation by focusing on what you want to do—adventure, nature, luxury, relaxation, or a mixture of all. The sky is the limit!

Best All-Inclusive Adults-Only Resorts & Boutique Hotels

There are both adult-only resorts and boutique hotels in Costa Rica. Both offer the chance to enjoy world-class service and excellent dining, and their differences only make the stay the more unique.

A child-free environment is perfect for both those who want to rest and seek out more action, so the perfect hotel to stay in depends on the type of experience you want to have.

Boutique hotels are more about privacy and personalized service. They often offer a unique atmosphere as well as seclusion, and they can take you off the beaten path. They are not necessarily all-inclusive, but compensate with great locations and proximity to nature.

Resorts are bigger, and often have more on-site entertainment and activities that allow you to socialize with other guests or go out on adventures.

Costa Rica can provide adult-only experiences on several all-inclusive resorts as well as in smaller destinations. Take a look to check the best adult-only hotels in the country:

Tips to Get the Best Adult-Only Package to Costa Rica

To get the best experience in Costa Rica during your vacation, having insider knowledge is key.

This is why our group of experts is more than happy to help you with tips and recommendations as they craft your ideal vacation.

1. What’s the Minimum Age?

It’s important to remember that most hotels in Costa Rica are catalogued as adult-only when guests are required to be 18+, but there are some that will accept 16-year-old visitors and older.

In addition, some tours and activities will also require you are 16 years or older to participate. Make sure to bring your updated passport and driver’s license in case you need them.

2. Ideal Length of the Trip

In addition, a common idea is that staying at one hotel is the best option to make the most of your budget.

This is true for shorter vacations (five days or less). To get an ever better experience, we recommend a seven-night package and two locations. In this way, you can see two different areas like the tropical forest and the beach and get the best of both worlds.

3. Choose the Best Destination

The best adult-only resorts and boutique hotels are located along the Pacific coastline.

Most are also in Guanacaste, providing beach access and a getaway to a variety of interests, from water sports to sailing. Arenal provides some options as well, guaranteeing a more peaceful and private atmosphere without the happy screams of little kids.

Adventures of all kinds await in these areas: surfing, horseback riding, whitewater rafting, paddle boarding, zip lining, and diving are only examples.

If you prefer to slow down, an easy hike along the forest or a world-class spa treatment are available. If you prefer to lounge at the pool with a cocktail while soaking up the sun, you’re more than welcome to.

4. Arrange Lodgings & Transportation

For these types of trips, most travelers wonder if they can stay in adjoining or neighboring rooms. Most hotels and resorts cannot guarantee these details, but our travel agents will always champion your needs and we will do our best to accommodate you.

We always recommend staying together as much as possible to guarantee everyone in your group has a good time. Private or shared transfers from reliable partners are the best options, and you can add as many vans as you need.

Flying together into the country is also the best option as everyone can start their vacation together. If you must take separate flights, then we recommend you stay a night near the airport so everyone can start the vacation the following day at the same time.

5. Use a Local Travel Agency

The logistics of travelling don’t have to be complicated either.

All this and more is possible with the help of professionals. Have a hassle-free vacation and let us handle all the details: from dinner reservations to transportation, leave it to us to give you the best recommendations.

Tips for Adult-Only Packages
