One amazing country, two premium hotels, and eight days to relax, laugh, explore, and have fun with your best friends. It is your turn to be pampered!

The 2 special properties in this luxury girlfriend getaway are Hotel Punta Islita and El Silencio. At Hotel Punta Islita, Costa Rica's best experiences are enjoyed in feel-good equilibrium. Surrounded by lush tropical forest and colorful local communities, this destination resort gazes upon a secluded beach cove along Guanacaste's wide-open Pacific coastline.

Silencio ("silence" in Spanish) befits a destination where daily stress is silenced by nature's crisp melodies. El Silencio Lodge & Spa features a 500 acre private cloud forest reserve, hidden trails and waterfalls, an upscale organic restaurant, a spa, and an organic mini-farm.

Hotel Punta Islita and El Silencio Lodge & Spa are members of the elite Autograph Collection and an official A Relais & Chateaux destination.

Note: for this itinerary, it is best to plan for an arrival in San Jose International Airport (SJO) ideally around mid-day or afternoon, and a departure on Day 8 from Liberia International Airport in the late morning or afternoon.
