Take a Father’s Day Trip to Costa Rica

It is no secret that dad loves a good meal, and as everyone also knows, he loves everyone who keeps him fed on a regular basis, so finding the restaurants that will make him happy should be your top priority. The Hook Up, located in Los Sueños Marina Village, is open every day of the week for lunch and dinner, offering a menu filled with local treats with a twist such as their Jalisco and Al Pastor pizzas, but if dad isn’t an adventurous diner, he will definitely appreciate the American meals that dot the menu. The Captain is always a popular choice for hearty diners—it’s a 12-ounce Angus burger topped with bacon, cheese, grilled onions, and cherry pepper aioli. Breakfast at Hacienda Kitchen, located in Los Sueños Resort, is destined to be his favorite meal of the day, as he devours the delicious breakfast options they offer.

La Iguana Fore the Win

The spelling of fore was chosen intentionally, especially as dad loves his golf, and La Iguana Golf Course, located in the Los Sueños Resort and Marina, loves its golfers! Featuring an 18-hole course designed by Ted Robinson, the beauty of our tropical landscape lends itself to a game filled with natural obstacles and a serene vibe. It is impossible to be less than happy, even when the game isn’t completely going your way on this challenging course that somehow manages to not be intimidating. Tee times are available from 6:20 AM-3:50 PM every day and the driving range is open from 7 AM- 3:50 PM as well.

Where the Big Fish Are

Everyone knows how important fishing is to the men in our lives, and there is no better time to help dad make his fishing dreams come true than during your Father’s Day getaway in Costa Rica. Los Sueños offers an array of deep sea fishing expeditions that will combine luxury, serenity, and plenty of chances to catch the big game fish, often including accommodations as well, but if dad is just looking to find a shoreline where he can bring his cooler, his pole, and his bait and spend quiet hours savoring the thrill of man against sea, he can find that as well. Fishermen come in all types and whatever fishing adventure your dad prefers, it can be found right here in Costa Rica.

For the Bravest of Dads

Your dad is the first man you ever loved and has always been the hero of the family, doing his part to provide for the home while performing all the chores on his honey-do list, helping the teens pass their driver’s tests, and always being there with a comforting shoulder to cry on, because nothing scares dad. This next adventure is for the bravest of dads, a crocodile tour that will allow him to feel like an Irwin in a world of scaredy cats, offering a 2.5-hour-long boat ride on the Tarcoles River. The Tarcoles River is home to one of the largest American crocodile populations in the world, and as dad enjoys his leisurely float down the river, he is sure to enjoy all the beauty of the Costa Rican landscape as he views more than a few crocodiles, scarlet macaws, and iguanas and lizards. This tour costs just $50 plus tax per person and is an adventure that will fit into any vacation budget.
