Soak up the sun while sipping on cocktails with your crew far, far away from it all. There is nothing quite like a girls’ trip to recharge your batteries. No men, no kids…just the perfect balance of fun and relaxation. Sound too good to be true? Lay on the beach, party it up in style, and be pampered with a friends’ trip in Costa Rica. You can have it all and more at our all-inclusive vacation rental in Costa Rica.

What Makes Costa Rica Ideal for a Girls’ trip?

Costa Rica is one of the most popular vacation spots worldwide, and for good reason. They take their natural preservation seriously, devoting nearly 30 percent of their land mass to protected zones. This attention to preservation makes Costa Rica a beautiful and lush vacation destination. You and your friends can feel good about traveling to a tropical country that actually cares for its environment.

If you travel to the northwest coast of Costa Rica, you can be sure of great weather year-round. This area of Costa Rica is the driest part of the country. Even during their rainy season from May to December, you can expect short rainfalls in the evening or morning and dry ground and sunny skies for the rest of the day. The one exception is October when the rains are at their peak.

If you plan to stay at the beach, you can expect highs of 28 to 34 degrees Celsius (82 to 93 F) year-round. Too hot? There are several microclimates throughout the small Central American country. Taking a trip just two hours inland can put you in a different microclimate.

Our private outdoor showers, swimming pool, and outdoor living space are the height of luxury and it’s all yours.

You have to shop, meal plan, and cook every day back home, but not on your girls’ trip in Costa Rica. Our all-inclusive vacation rentals include a private chef! She can prepare a variety of meals one day in advance from traditional Costa Rica food to international cuisine. Fresh fruits, pastries, and Costa Rican coffee await you every morning. All you have to do is sit back and enjoy!

Our all-inclusive vacation rentals in Costa Rica are located in the resort residence of Hacienda Pinilla.
