Every holiday in Costa Rica can be the best one, but there is something about Valentine’s Day that just shines even brighter in a country that makes love its top priority. Its warmth reflects the heat of your love, its stunning views will pale next to the beauty of your Valentine, and our Stay In Costa Rica romantic love nests will provide an idyllic backdrop to a vacation filled with love, excitement, and luxury. This guide to all the ways to make your Valentine’s Day in Costa Rica the most perfect holiday gift.

Make Valentine’s Day 2024 in Costa Rica Special

There’s a reason that traditions continue to be so, and that reason is that they work, but that doesn’t mean you can’t add a little something new to the tried and true. Breakfast in bed has long been a beautiful way to say, “I love you,” and in Costa Rica, you can easily add to the situation simply by opening the glass doors and letting the outside in. In your wintry hometown, this would not be an option, but you’re not in Kansas anymore! The aroma of tropical flowers blending with the sounds and scents of the sea will make even a simple meal of muffins and mimosas appear more glamorous than a gourmet meal at a five-star restaurant and will offer the perfect beginning to a perfect holiday in paradise.

The Sea Awaits

After your leisurely meal, there are many options as to where this day could go next, but we have a feeling that you will want to start with at least a couple of hours of toes in the sand. Temperatures in February may feel like summer to you, and because this is our dry season, there will be no reason for skipping some time at the beach. Chances are you rented one of our beachfront escapes, and the call of the sea will be louder there and much harder to ignore, so slip into the new swimsuits bought specifically for this trip, fill up a cooler with snacks and beverages and answer that call in the morning hours of your Valentine’s Day adventures.

Luxury Amenities

Of course, the luxury amenities of Los Sueños Resort offer another way to enjoy this day of love and romance, including some lazy hours spent lounging by the pool. Our swim up pool bar will help keep the sparkle in her eyes offering the traditional beverages you love as well as some new tropical delights that are destined to add to the wonder of the day. Hang out in the resort jacuzzi, letting the bubbling waters wash away any lingering traveling plans or, if you just don’t want to leave the luxurious comfort of your love nest, most of our properties provide a private plunge pool to enjoy with the love of your life.

A Spa Day Built for Two

Another romantic favorite, a spa day, can be just the ticket and the Serenity Spa Costa Rica, located in Hotel Villa Caletas, offers a few different packages that celebrate love and romance. It will be easy to determine which package is built for two, and their Romance, Passion, and Pamper packages are where you should look first. Each include a sumptuous massage for two, adding aromatherapy, body scrubs, and in the Passion, a pure chocolate wrap that is even better than it sounds. Again, for those who don’t want to venture far from their holiday hideaway, just contact concierge services and have a masseuse sent to your room for a most luxurious indulgence.

A Meal to Remember

Can you even consider the day a success without a traditional romantic meal? As the sun begins to set, choosing El Hicaco Seafood in Jaco will offer the most delicious way to end your day of love and sunshine. Offering patio views of the sea, sweet seafood that we can promise tastes better here than anywhere else on earth, and providing an extensive cocktail menu, your dinner a deux will be the stuff dreams are made of. Also providing live entertainment, we simply can’t imagine a better place to enjoy a romantic meal.

Explore All that Stay In Costa Rica Has to Offer

We have touched on the idea of staying in and exploring the amenities of your love nest built for two, and our luxurious escapes are designed for just that. Sleep in late, lounge by the plunge pool soaking in the rays, and enjoy a Valentine’s dinner at one of the onsite restaurants, (we recommend Lanterna Italian Steakhouse) ensuring that you don’t have to wander far from your romantic escape. Every day will be as perfect as you can imagine when you choose Stay In Costa Rica and our Los Sueños holiday hideaways contact us to reserve your favorite today!

Your 2024 calendar is soon to be filled with long lists of everything you need to do, so planning a getaway where doing nothing is celebrated can be beneficial to your health and well-being.

Everyone deserves a little luxury in their lives and when a vacation journey brings you to the tropical paradise of Costa Rica, travelers will enjoy more than a little, especially when they choose our Stay in Costa Rica Casa Selva Tica for their vacation accommodations. Casa Selva Tica, roughly translates to house of the monkeypod or raintree, offers six serene bedrooms, five and a half baths, and the room for up to 12 guests to enjoy a getaway they will never forget. This guide to all the luxuries and comforts found in one of our more popular Costa Rican vacation rentals will have you wishing your vacation journey could start right now! 

Property Walkthrough: Casa Selva Tica

The magic of Casa Selva Tica can be found in so many of its amenities, but perhaps for visitors traveling with multiple families, it lies in the versatility of the floor plan, allowing guests to stay connected while providing their own spaces to retreat to at the end of the day. Two separate living areas, both furnished with plush sofas and state of the art televisions allows for separation when the vacation world gets too people-y and an extra large kitchen offers more than enough room for more than one cook at the time. And while four of its six bedrooms offer private baths, the two remaining bedrooms share a bath in a separate but attached cottage on the property, perhaps being a great option for the mother-in-law who has sacrificed so much for her kids and grandkids over the years. Televisions in every bedroom offer more options for some downtime amidst all the adventures you will share and outside, the grassy yard surrounded by rainforest offers a private pool and hot tub for more adventures at home. 

Modern and Comfortable

The interior of Casa Selva Tica matches the modern exterior in style, but the comforts found inside could have come straight from a country farmhouse. Cool colors contrast beautifully with the verdant green of the landscape and as guests nap on lazy afternoons, play board games with the family late into the night at the dining room table, the views from walls of windows will keep the mood peaceful and tranquil. The kitchen, the heart of the home provides gourmet appliances, including a super-sized refrigerator that can easily hold all the cold beverages a traveling party of 12 will need to help make their stay even more enjoyable. And the bedrooms? Each offers something that makes them stand out in a sea of vacation homes. En suite baths, private balconies, views that are unparalleled in beauty, these rooms may be where your quietest and happiest memories are made. 

Amenities Make the Home

As you lounge around the crystal-clear waters of the pool, music streaming in your earbuds, you can rest easily knowing the full-time maid has ensured the house stays clean and neat, which is just one of the more high-end amenities you will definitely appreciate. A gas grill under the covered patio, multiple places to sit, relax, and dine on the same patio, and from some windows views of the golf course located on the other side of the trees give this home a feeling of Shangri la. Casa Selva Tica is located at the end of a quiet drive, seemingly dropped into the middle of the rainforest and feeling secluded and private, but it also offers a close proximity to the extras Costa Rican living can provide. The amenities of Los Sueños Resort are included with your rental fees and the beautiful beaches of Costa Rica are located just a mile away.  

Margaritas and Moonlight

A nighttime swim or soak in the hot tub may be one of your favorite memories of Casa Selva Tica and as the moon casts its ethereal glow over the landscape and the sounds of nature at night fill your ears with a joyful but lowkey cacophony, you will know that this vacation was the best idea you have had in years. Whip up a batch of margaritas to enjoy under the pergola by the pool, turn on your favorite streaming station, Bluetooth speakers are included, and laugh, chat, and relax until your eyelids grow heavy and your body begins to urge you along to bed. Life in Costa Rica is enjoyed at a slower pace and your enjoyment will be enhanced if you just go with the flow! 

At Home with Stay In Costa Rica

Every day will be an adventure in luxury and comfort when you choose Casa Selva Tica for your home sweet vacation home and every night will be one filled with deep sleep and happy dreams. Contact us today to reserve this stunning sanctuary today and awaken every morning feeling rested and ready for whatever adventures our beautiful country will bring, forgetting that reality exists on the other side of your vacation days! 

A vacation to Costa Rica can be a once in a lifetime experience, and the home you choose to make your own during your magical escape from real life should reflect the wonders of your getaway, something we at Stay In Costa Rica understand quite well. We get that guests should feel pampered, spoiled, and treasured from their first moments under our roofs until the inevitable sad farewell, and our Casa Solara Family abode is the perfect example. Offering 5 serene and tranquil bedrooms, an equal number of baths, and views that will take your breath away, this beautiful Costa Rican vacation home is perched high atop a hill and is filled with all the luxury amenities travelers seek. Spend your days exploring the beauty of Costa Rica with the knowledge that every night will be spending enjoying all the comforts of home. This guide will give you a sneak peek into what a vacation in Costa Rica should provide! 

Property Walkthrough: Casa Solara Family

This would normally be the point that we would begin to extoll the virtues of the inside of our luxurious sanctuaries, but today, we want to do things a little differently, especially as the exterior amenities of this stunning property will make you want to spend as much time as possible, exploring all your piece of paradise has to offer. Perched high in the hills overlooking Los Sueños, the creamy stucco walls, iron railings, and red tile roof create a dramatic contrast to the verdant landscape that surrounds it while still managing to feel cozy and appealing. The indoor/outdoor lifestyle is very popular in our hometown, and as walls of windows open out onto multiple levels of decks, you will never feel cut off from all that beauty. 

The back of the home is where the magic really happens, offering multiple places to lounge, relax, and bask in the stunning views, perhaps even from the infinity edge pool perfectly positioned to enjoy views of the bay and then the sea just beyond the trees. A hot tub will be much appreciated, offering a touch of romance intermingled with serious healing properties; travelers are often surprised at how tired and achy their muscles can get after a day of vacation adventures. Enjoy cocktails at sunset, taking in the panoramic views of green trees, red roofs, and the blue sea beyond until the sun falls into the waters and the velvety black of night reduces visibility. A private barbecue will encourage family pool parties with the main dishes being the catch of the day, caught by you in earlier fishing expeditions. The arched patio cover frames those views, with the covered portion, and the exterior furnishings underneath provide a shaded spot to nap on a sunny afternoon and your dreams of paradise will pale in comparison to the reality! 

Luxury and Serenity

When you can finally tear yourself away from the views outside, (never fear, generous windows in nearly every room ensure you never have to venture far from the vistas that have burrowed their way into your soul!) the interior of Casa Solara Family will stun you with its charm and comfort. Tile floors feel cool beneath bare feet, leading the way to a living room furnished with the softest of sofas and the most modern of televisions. Offering large screens and crystal-clear pictures, these state-of-the-art marvels are nice to have around, but quite frankly, they may lose out to the views that can be found in the space instead! Coffered ceilings, iron scrollwork and wood bannisters, and more arched windows finish up the picture of the most comfortable living room space in Costa Rica! Floor-to-ceiling windows throughout the home add a touch of elegance to the grand vistas that surround the home and can be found in the dining room, a space built to be enjoyed in a variety of ways. Play board games on a rainy evening, enjoy a freshly prepared feast every night of your stay, or simply sit in silence, drinking in the views of the pool, the bay, and the sea beyond. The kitchen is a luxurious space, offering more of those expansive views, an especially large footprint, and professional style appliances that add style and purpose to the room. 

Sweet Dreams

The final part of this tour of beauty takes us to the bedrooms of Casa Solara Family, with each room providing a tranquil magic that will ensure your dreams will be sweet ones. Premium beds anchor these rooms, views are framed in large windows that offer curtains that can be drawn shut against the Costa Rican sun on mornings you just want a little extra sleep. Private entrances to balconies overlooking the village, seating areas where coffee can be enjoyed on quiet mornings, and en suite baths that are sumptuous and luxurious and equipped with updated fixtures, soaking tubs, and soft and fluffy towels are just more extras that we consider standard in this stunning home.
