The latest acquisition of Papagayo Luxury is Viste de Oro, a three-bedroom, 2,800-square-foot condo within the gated community of Peninsula Papagayo in northwestern Costa Rica. Vista de Oro has three and a half baths and 750 square feet of private terraces, and it comes with access to the private Prieta Beach Club and the Four Seasons Arnold Palmer Signature Gold Course. Jane Moore, of Papagayo Luxury, says the property is ideal for three couples (children must be at least 12 years old). A concierge service handles such arrangements as stockage, transport, restaurant reservations, and golf tee times. To inquire, contact Jane at Papagayo Luxury.

Vista de Oro great room
The villa is equipped throughout with WiFi and satellite TV, a more reliable option in this part of Costa Rica than cable. The great room (above) has a vaulted ceiling, and every room has been fully refurbished, with lots of reflective surfaces and a completely renovated kitchen (below). Peninsula Papagayo is on the Pacific coast near Santa Rosa National Park in Guanacaste, a province known for its beaches, coral reefs, rare tropical dry forest, and biodiversity, as well as such activities as snorkeling, surfing, and sport fishing. Vista de Oro is newly available, so now is the time to book it for a Costa Rican holiday.
