Parador Resort & Spa Is a Nature Lovers’ Nest in Costa Rica

Costa Rica is the reigning capital of green travel and Parador Resort & Spa in Punta Quepos is one of its brightest stars. Located minutes from Manuel Antonio Park, world-famous for its bio-diversity, the luxury resort is on a mission to showcase and shelter Costa Rica’s Central Pacific Coast.

Parador Resort & Spa, the area’s top eco-friendly property, explores a charming combination of preserved rainforest and beaches with its six-night Eco-Friendly Package. Guests enjoy horseback riding, a mangrove boat excursion and walking tour of Manuel Antonio Park, with the respite of an amenity-packed Superior Room. The package starts at $283 per room, per night, valid for travel through December 20, 2011.

Parador Resort & Spa’s experienced bilingual guides lead the way through this diverse ecosystem. Mangrove tours explore the swamps filled with crocodiles, boa constrictors and monkey population. Guests ride on horseback through the jungles and hills to nearby waterfalls, discovering the secrets of the forest and the history of the preserve and medicinal plants. After a walking excursion through the wildlife-laden Manuel Antonio National Park, they relax on the park’s silky stretch of beaches that border the lush jungle.
