El Sueño Tropical

Playa Carrillo
Guanacaste , Costa Rica

For travelers looking for a few more niceties of home like high-speed wireless, a business center, and multiple televisions showing professional hockey, football, and basketball games, the Hotel El Sueño Tropical on the north Pacific coast is a popular favorite. The resort is set in the three acres of tropical gardens and consists of 16 rooms with three levels of luxury — standard, deluxe, and bedroom apartments. For meals, guests can partake of American, Italian and Tico, with fresh fish supplied daily by local fishermen. The surf paradise of Samara lies minutes away, as do many area activities including snorkeling, horseback riding and zip-line tours.
