The phrase “Pura Vida” can be heard throughout Costa Rica, as a greeting or expression of happiness.  The phrase translates to “pure life,” which accurately describes both the friendly hospitality of the Costa Rican people, and the adventure and wonder that await its visitors.

With an abundance of unique wildlife, landscapes and climates, Costa Rica proudly shelters approximately 5 percent of the known biodiversity in the world and protects 26 percent of its land mass.  Beach lovers, surfers, and anglers quickly feel right at home along the coasts, while adventure seekers are captivated by the country’s volcanoes, rain forests, cloud forests, and rivers.

With the coastal area nicknamed the "Gold Coast", the beaches are superb.

With so much to do, you'll never be bored. From swimming, snorkeling, diving, fishing and surfing to horseback rides, trekking and wildlife watching, Guanacaste has it all.

Situated on Costa Rica’s famed Playa Conchal, a short 35 miles from Liberia International Airport, the newly refurbished Westin Playa Conchal welcomes guests with attentive service, luxurious accommodations, and a full compliment of all-inclusive features... all while being surrounded by spectacular, ocean views, and lush, manicured grounds which are home to numerous animals indigenous to Costa Rica.

Each day, the resort offers dozens of activities such as volleyball, tennis, aerobics, and non-motorized watersports, all a part of the all-inclusive package.  Plus, guests will find a refreshing lagoon-style pool - one of the largest in Central America, a full-service spa & fitness center, and an 18-hole Robert Trent Jones II-designed golf course.  The fun continues well into the evening with five bars/lounges, nightly shows, a discotheque, and more.

While some guests prefer to spend their days relaxing on the beach, those with a more "adventurous" spirit will appreciate the closeness of some of Costa Rica's prime National parks and wildlife refuges - just a few of the many fun-filled eco-tours available in the surrounding areas.

And when you're ready to retire for the evening, your accommodations at The Westin Playa Conchal will be equally inspiring and luxurious.  Each Junior Suite features a plasma TV, minibar, iPod docking station, the Westin Heavenly Bed® and Heavenly Bath®, a living room with couch and a balcony or terrace perfect for enjoying Costa Rica's year-round sun and striking vistas.
