I’ll be honest, Costa Rica hasn’t really been on my radar before I went there last summer. It’s not that I didn’t want to go, it’s that I didn’t have any information about it. And, to continue on this honesty train, I still don’t know much about Costa Rica itself and didn’t experience a “true Costa Rica” but I did get to spend a few days on Peninsula Papagayo, which is a gated area of Costa Rica and popular among the wealthy traveler, and this area I can say is absolutely beautiful.
Peninsula Papagayo is Central America’s first environmentally friendly luxury resort and real estate project. It is located in the hills of the peninsula as a collection of estate homes. Residential opportunities include in the first phase of Peninsula Papagayo real estate are custom private estates, oceanfront and ocean view home sites, and luxury condominiums and villas. The Four Seasons Resort offers its own area of private estates and private villas. Each private estate owner can access the benefits of the Four Seasons Resort, such as housekeeping, room service, access to the Arnold Palmer Golf Course, the hotel spa, as well as pool and gym access. There are also condominiums called Las Terrazas which is a new development in the area and overlook the fairways of the Arnold Palmer Golf Course as well as the Bahia de Culebra. Another residential opportunity is the beachfront estates at Playa Prieta, the only beachfront option for housing on the peninsula 15-mile coastline. Real Estate sales are handled through an office at the Four Seasons Costa Rica and may be contacted through the Peninsula Papagayo website.
I traveled to Peninsula Papagayo to shoot promotional footage for an ultra-luxury villa called CieloMar. The following videos were shot by myself.
Take a walk through this incredible villa and see all it has to offer.
Included in your stay at the villa is the ability to access the Four Seasons Ocean Golf course designed by Arnold Palmer.
This location is a jungle paradise and one I hope to return to very soon.
