Gulf of Papagayo, Province of Guanacaste, Costa Rica
With hundreds of diverse habitats to explore -- including rugged beaches, misty forests, and active volcanoes -- visitors can pack a lot of adventuring into a single day in Costa Rica. But the best way to relax after all that organic hustle and bustle is to soak in the country's natural beauty while, well, soaking: Private pools and Jacuzzis abound at luxe hotels throughout Costa Rica, and here we've compiled photos of some of the most beautiful and relaxing ones in the country. At the Hilton Papagayo Costa Rica Resort & Spa, Junior Suites come with large pool decks, comfortable loungers, and this beautiful private plunge pool. Overlooking the Hilton's lush grounds and the rugged Pacific coastline, this is the perfect spot to wrap up your day.
