Rainforest Gaming

Talk about out-of-the-ordinary.

“It is truly a unique experience when you can sip Cuban rum and play Texas hold ’em while the toucans and monkeys call to one another from the treetops. The surrounding area is rugged rainforest terrain, so it seems like an unusual place to stumble upon a casino,” says Magan Hunt, director of public relations for stayincostarica.com, a travel and tourism company based in Herradurra Bay that manages the
largest portfolio of luxury properties in the country.

The Los Suenos Marriott Ocean & Golf Resort is a luxury Costa Rican resort hotel between the warm waters of the Pacific and a 1,100-acre tropical rainforest. The resort is also home to the Stellaris Casino.

And Aruba may be a vacation paradise, but it is also a destination that features blackjack, poker, craps, roulette, and baccarat. Caribbean stud poker is an Aruban brainchild, invented here in 1988, and is currently skyrocketing in popularity all over the world.

The Hyatt Regency Aruba Resort, on 12 acres of beachfront property on Aruba’s world-renowned Palm Beach, features a casino with more than 260 slot machines and 21 gaming tables, and a casino bar offering hand-rolled Cuban cigars and exotic drinks.

So although cities like Las Vegas, Atlantic City, and Reno are renowned for their casinos, destinations the world over feature world-class gaming—and that’s a sure bet.
