Hacienda Pinilla Guanacaste,
FOR NATURE LOVERS and adventure seekers alike, Hacienda Pinilla brims with possibilities. Set along Costa Rica’s pristine Pacific Coast in the province of Guanacaste, the beach resort and residential community immerses couples in a 4,500-acre environment of lowlands and mountains, lakes and rivers, surf, sand and sunshine.
Lodging choices range from 60 rooms set amid tropical gardens at La Posada Hotel to luxury hideaways at Palma Real to furnished villas and houses with multiple bedrooms. With their secluded settings mere steps from the beach, these posh retreats are ideal for couples and their bridal parties.
Anytime before or after their exclusive wedding celebration, brides and grooms can explore the region’s beauty and diversity while surfing, snorkeling or shelling at three pristine beaches. They may play at the showpiece 18-hole golf course or sip cocktails in the Beach Club’s infinity-edge pool. Others fish in area lakes or rivers, hike the nature trails or horseback ride on the beach by moonlight, if they like. An equestrian center on-property houses a riding school and ring, some 40 horses as well as buggies for weddings and romantic tours of the resort and its inspiring surroundings.
