Our team is proud to exclusively hold this honour and provide our guests with consistent excellence.”

Beyond The Bucket List

Four Seasons Resort Costa Rica is Latin America’s ultimate coastal retreat offering an unparalleled access to nature in one of the world’s most compelling destinations. Peninsula Papagayo is the utmost location for outdoor adventure travellers, wellness seekers, culinary explorers, and cultural globetrotters.

“We are blessed to have every region of Costa Rica represented by our team and are ready to curate extraordinary adventures for our guests,” says Lucas Medeiros, Chef Concierge. “Connecting our guests with the Costa Rican culture and creating lifelong memorable is what we live for.”

  • Surf with the best with SurfX, the Resort’s in-house outfitter, and be paired with a professional surfer, including members of the Costa Rican National Surf Team.
  • Dine under the stars while learning about gastronomy and astronomy in “Taste the Stars,” a six-course tasting menu with a guided stargazing session.  Making the night more fascinating is the Resort’s resident astronomy expert, Juan Jose (JJ) Fonseca Anchia, a completely self-taught astronomer with astonishing, encyclopedic knowledge of the universe.
  • Make an impact by participating in a Coral Gardening Experience, a restoration program designed to grow new coral through the process of coral gardening.

In partnership with a Chorotega artisan Jose Salomón Villafuerte Grijalba, the Resort will highlight the beauty and artistry of handcrafted Chorotega pottery.
