Four Seasons is positioned on Costa Rica’s northwest Pacific coast within the province of Guanacaste. Though it’s the country’s second-largest province by area, Guanacaste is the least populated, offering a calm, peaceful ambience. The pampas – or prairie – landscape is an unusual mix of grassy savannahs, immense cattle ranches and tropical dry forest, backed by volcanic mountain ranges.


Guanacaste also offers some of the country’s best beaches – with shores stretching about 160 kilometres (99 miles) from the border with Nicaragua to the tip of the Nicoya Peninsula.


Four Seasons is located on exclusive Peninsula Papagayo, a master-planned resort community encompassing 930 hectares (2,300 acres). This secluded natural sanctuary provides abundant opportunities to experience eco-adventure on land and in the water.


Please note that all visitors to Costa Rica must possess a passport valid for at least six months from the date of arrival. Costa Rica has stringent customs guidelines for packages shipped into the country. Guests are encouraged to travel with all luggage, including personal belongings and golf clubs.
