If this is your first time traveling to Costa Rica, I highly recommend Azura Beach Resort. The property is beautiful and incorporates a lot of natural elements into the resort. While we were there, the pool and beach were practically empty. The food was excellent and the drinks made by Marco were absolutely delicious! What truly makes this resort special is the staff. All were incredible but Marco, Melanie, Naun, and Phillippe treated us like family and ensured we had the best time possible. At our time there, we scheduled two excursions and Phillippe worked so hard making sure we were able to do the activities we wanted. In addition, the tropical fruit massages we had at the resort were such a unique experience. When else can you have papaya and pineapple rubbed all over your body?! Being a young adult it can be intimidating coming to a new country, but this resort is so friendly and made us feel extremely safe the entire trip. 10/10 recommend!!!
