Not with this vacation! From the moment I contacted Stay In Costa Rica my vacation planning was so fast and easy that I could hardly believe it. The staff at Stay in Costa RIca (especially Jose) answered all of my questions (and there were MANY of them!), gave me suggestions, information about CR and details that only true professionals would know. They were all so kind, helpful and most important, PATIENT.
I was really nervous about the time of year we were going to be in CR because when we chose the dates for our vacation many friends cautioned us that we would be going at the start of the green season and that the weather would be terrible and that was SO wrong. Jose put my mind at rest and assured me that like with any tropical location, showers happen regularly but that the time we were going that things would be fine and the weather would not ruin the day – he was so correct. We had a few showers but they did not last long. The rain was cool and refreshing and it was really fun sitting in the hot tub sipping a cocktail while the showers were happening.
Here are a few of our highlights:
- The men all got the pleasure of a deep sea fishing trip leaving from the marina which was really close to our condo. The boat was top of the line and they were lucky enough to catch a marlin and sailfish. The marina is full of boats and tours to choose from too so you always have someone to take you fishing if you want.
- The restaurants were really awesome too. Bamboo was my favorite and my kids and husband loved the Hook Up. What a bonus to be able to have food delivered to our condo too! That was a real treat.
- The beach club was fun for the whole family and was safe to let the teenagers go to alone (major bonus!). The sand volleyball court and the game area by the pool was fun.
- The pool at the Marriott was nice and fun to visit and the service at the pool was great.
- The Casino at the Marriott was a lot of fun.
- DAILY MAID SERVICE FOR THE CONDO! I am sure any mother reading this will appreciate that!
- Moonlit swims and walks on the beach

Dear Stay in Costa Rica,
From the moment we got there our driver Alex was the best (we used him all week long), Veronica was great and had everything completely under control with all the prior requests I had made. Los Suenos Resort is the most beautiful place we’ve ever been to. Del Mar 4o was just perfect. We spent time in and around the area with Alex helping us along the way. Saturday two of us went fishing on the Sunny 1 and caught 8’ and 11’ 6” Sailfish while our wives relished in the Spa at the Marriott.
We thank you all and hope to one day come again.

I just wanted to drop you a quick note to thank you for all your help in planning our trip and coordinating our transportation and tours. We had a fabulous time during our stay and the condo (Del Mar, 8C) was absolutely beautiful. We really appreciate you working with us to get us that wonderful view! Everyone at Stay in Costa Rica was extremely kind and very helpful any time we needed anything. And the fishing…..Captain Walton and Cristian [CREW of boat Sunny One] are the best! Thank you for all your help in making our trip so memorable. We are already looking forward to coming back soon.
My group of 9 stayed in the Bella Vista Condos 5 D and 3 C (Jan 7 to Jan 12, 2011) for what the best vacation we have had in years. After visiting in 2008 I recommended the resort to my friends and they were delighted with the place!
The Condos were excellent as were the restaurants, Iguana Golf, the tours and the best of all the fishing as you can see by the attached pictures.
The grounds at Los Suenos are so well kept and lush that you have to see it to believe it. We will come back!
We want to thank you for the greatest vacation we have ever had. Weeks after we are still talking about it and telling everyone we know.
Everyone at Stay in Costa Rica were wonderful and went above and beyond. The accommodations were first rate and the whole resort was five star.
My husband has been battling jaw cancer for the last five years and his biggest wish was to catch a blue marlin. It is hard to travel because he can only have liquids, but your staff made everything so simple. They had our condo rental stocked with everything we needed, and on our three days of fishing they made him a wonderful soup and fruit drinks.
John got his wish, not one but two marlins, a sailfish, four 40lb+ Mahi ( which the staff at the Hook-up cooked for me and my son every night. YUM!) Our son also got his first sailfish.
I am in the hospitality industry and I will say everyone at Stay in Costa Rica and all the staff at Los Suenos were all FIVE STAR.
Thank you again,

On behalf of my son, Jake, myself, and the rest of my family, I would like to express a big thanks to Early Times Whisky, JDC Marketing, and American Bass Anglers for the opportunity of a lifetime. As a recap, my son and I won the 18th Annual Military Team Bass Tournament held 7-9 May 2008 on Dale Hollow Reservoir, TN. As a pledge of support to the military, Early Times Whisky and JDC Marketing sponsored a Costa Rica “fishing trip of a lifetime” for the winning team. We traveled to Costa Rica in early November and I just wanted to give you some highlights of a trip that we will remember forever.
We arrived at the Los Suenos Resort (www.stayincostarica.com) in Costa Rica after a three hour flight from Maimi and a one and half hour van drive. Los Suenos bills itself as the finest resort in Costa Rica with luxurious accommodations in a magnificent 1,100 acre ocean community that provides the ultimate vacation experience for you and your family. In addition to my older son I was able to bring my wife and younger son…and we all agree Los Suenos lives up to its billing. We stayed in a two bedroom, two bath luxury condominium in a complex that included its own pool and fitness center. While there we rented a golf cart and explored the resort’s other facilities including the 18 Hole Championship Eco-Golf Course, casino, 8 restaurants, health spa, private Beach Club (with white sand beaches), and international marina. The marina is recognized worldwide for the excellent fishing it provides.
After meeting our Captain on the first fishing day, we departed the Marina and headed about 25 miles out. Just barely over an hour after leaving the Marina, we had our first “tripleheader.” All three of us were in the back of the boat fighting Dorados (Mahi Mahi) at the same time…it was a bit of controlled chaos as we ducked under and over each other. The action was steady all morning, but started to taper off as we traveled further out. But the reason for focusing deeper quickly became evident. My youngest son’s rod bowed and the water erupted when a giant fish—an almost 400 pound Blue Marlin—engulfed his ballyhoo. What a sight! After nearly 30 minutes of give and take, the beautiful Marlin was released at the side of the boat. It was indeed a fish of a lifetime.
The next day we actually started out further. We did not catch as many fish, but did have one Marlin that got off and my older son and I each managed to land a Sailfish. That evening we dined on some Mahi Mahi we caught that day, prepared by the chef at the Marina restaurant. Fresh fish prepared four different ways…a fabulous meal to top off a fabulous trip.
Once again I would like to thank everyone for an outstanding fishing trip.

We had a fabulous time in Costa Rica. Villa Wagner was spectacular! It was a great place for our family and friends to spend quality time together. Diego ( the chef) was so much fun everyone loved him. We made memories that will last forever! We will definitely return to Los Suenos. The Stay in Costa Rica staff was a pleasure to work with!
Thank you for making our trip so fantastic.

My husband and I just got back from our ten day stay in the Bella Vista. The resort took my breath away and the marina was so well taken care of it made the trip even better.I am recommending Los Suenos Resort and Marina to everone I know. I tell them: “Mark this place on your Things-To-See-and-Do-Before-I-Die list”.
Thank you for the memories!
