Where to Stay

The housing was the hardest part of the trip to plan. When having multiple people with different tastes and levels of comfort, finding an accomdation for almost 20 people was tough. Luckily, I found an all-inclusive resort that we decided would be perfect.

The Hotel Rui Guanacaste, Costa Rica is where we stayed. I have a mixed review about the resort.

The first thing I noticed was that the rooms were very antique and there was no air conditioning there. The plus is that the rooms are very clean, the bar is fully stocked with free drinks, and you aren't in your room that much anyway.

The only time we came back to the rooms as to change and to sleep.

The resort, however, was really nice. There were 5 restaurants including a Buffett (my favorite place LOL), the Renova Spa, beaches, pools, parties, bars, and hella fun stuff to do while on the resort. Hella inclusive might I add.

Unlimited Drinks, Unlimited Food, and Unlimited Fun

What to Pack

Here are some things you and your guests should consider bringing:

  1. Passports and Vaccination Cards

  2. Tote Bags or Beach Bags

  3. Shades and scarves (especially if you're going on the yachts, very windy)

  4. Outfits for outdoor activities/indoor activities/swimsuits/party fits/ etc

  5. Sunscreen/Bar Soap/ Toothpaste/ Necessity items like Lysol, sanitizer, and masks

  6. Shoes - Tennis Shoes/ Flip FLops/ Shower Shoes/ etc

  7. Please bring cash at least $114 USD (resort has an atm machine)

What to Do

We booked most of our excursions through a local company called Prime Tours.

We also hired a driver to get around because there was no Uber near the resort.
