Day 2: Central Valley Hotel - Golfing at Cariari Club - Playa Herradura

After your breakfast, a private transfer with Spanish-speaking driver will pick you up to take you to the first golf course you will play in Costa Rica. Cariari Country Club Golf course is located about 5km from your hotel. If you are looking for a challenge, then this 18-hole course (par 71) is perfect for you. Narrow Fairways and abundant vegetation with a lot of trees call for a very precise game. A creek has to be crossed over repeatedly. But surely the amazing view of the Central Valley´s mountain range and watching the many birds inhabiting the area will calm your nerves and soul.

Afterwards, your journey continues down to the Central Pacific coast where you will arrive at the magnificent Los Sueños Marina.

The afternoon is at leisure. Enjoy the great resort and the beach right in front of the hotel!

The golf course, designed by Ted Robinson, is a challenging one. Long, wide fairways take turns with narrow, tree-lined ones. The Greens are demanding and call for a precise game and good monitoring and estimating of the ball´s rolling path. Monkeys, Macaws, Armadillos, Iguanas, Coatis and countless other animals usually closely watch your swing and provide for distractions and other topics than Golf.

The afternoon is at leisure. You may wish to visit the Carara National Park located close-by, go to Jaco to look for souvenirs or just relax at the pool or on the beach.

Day 5: Hacienda Pinilla Golf Course

The 18 hole golf course at the Hacienda (7300 Yards / 72 Par) was designed by Mike Young. It is a true Bijou, which does not only meet international standards but has also recently received an award for its nature-friendly concept. Wide and partly lined with lush vegetation, the fairways let players realize most different golf varieties. Particularly challenging are the wind conditions here, especially between December and March. You will enjoy the spectacular views of the Pacific ocean: one of the greens lies right on the beach and needs to be played against the surf. It is simply breathtaking! This well-maintained course will definitely thrill you.

The Garra de Leon Golf Course (71 Par / 6‘6956 yards) was designed by Robert Trent Jones II and impresses with its natural beauty. The championship course offers plenty of challenges for all levels, as the different tee areas were cleverly placed. The ever changing wind conditions and a few water hazards require a corresponding strategic game. From the rolling hills, you can catch some great views of the ocean, and from time to time iguanas as well as different species of birds will pass by close to you. This golf course promises an excellent golfing experience on a well-maintained site.
