Top Pre-Packaged Vacations & All Inclusive Resorts in Puntarenas

Costa Rican cruise port, gateway to the Pacific and former playground of the wealthy: Puntarenas has been many things throughout its storied history, but it’s never been boring. Situated just beyond the bustling borders of San José, this oceanfront destination is a favourite weekend getaway for locals, and international tourists often use Puntarenas Costa Rica all inclusive packages as jumping-off points for explorations of the surrounding areas. Spend a little time getting to know the city itself, however, and you’ll discover a local character that’s easy to adore.

The city’s most popular sight is the Paseo de los Turistas, and this coastal promenade is a great place to start your vacation in Puntarenas. Perched on the city’s southern side, this boulevard offers beautiful beach views by day and vibrant bars by night. You’ll find several spots to grab a quick lunch or shop for unique souvenirs, but the avenue’s seaside location is its true allure.

If you’re searching for the best bird watching opportunities, plan a visit to the northern estuary. You’ll find mangrove forests packed with native wildlife, and it’s not difficult to track down guided eco tours through the greenery. For an even more remote retreat, take a sailing trip to Isla Tortuga, Isla del Coco or Isla de Chira. Each of these islands offers pristine beaches and an unparalleled sense of seclusion, and Isla del Coco is renowned for its diving areas.

Of course, there are plenty of options for the less adventurous set, too. Puntarenas Marine Park offers a family-friendly aquarium that focuses on Pacific sea life, and Museo Histórico Marino tells the story of historical Puntarenas with an array of photography exhibits and expertly curated artifacts. Art lovers can spend their Puntarenas vacations browsing local galleries like La Casa de la Cultura, and relaxation seekers can venture to the Puntarenas all inclusive resorts located in nearby beach towns for the most tranquil escape.
