Calling all families visiting us this month! This coming Monday 15th August, Costa Rica celebrates Mother’s Day. It’s a national holiday – also known as Día de la Madre – where locals take a moment to honor the maternal figures that surround them. Traditionally, families do so by preparing homemade gifts and cards, as well as spending time around the table as they enjoy a special meal together.
Wondering where you can take the family to join in the celebrations? We’ve pulled together some of the best options in Peninsula Papagayo that are nearby to your luxury vacation villa – read on for more details.

The best things in life are meant to be shared – and that’s exactly the philosophy behind this Prieta Beach Club bar.
