Famous for its dense jungles, laid-back beach towns and miles of unspoiled coastline, Costa Rica attracts over 2 million visitors every year. The country's tourist offerings range from adventure packages to five-star all-inclusives, accommodating a wide variety of visitors from families to spring-breakers and shoestring backpackers. For singles seeking a resort escape, Costa Rica also offers several noteworthy adults-only establishments where it's possible to enjoy the country's natural beauty without the sound of crying babies drowning out the waves.
The Royal Club Grand Papagayo Resort offers high-end boutique lodging and VIP services with a stunning view of the Gulf of Papagayo on the north Pacific coast of Costa Rica. The adults-only property is a resort within a resort, with its own spa, restaurant, lounge, pool, concierge service and beach area. Guests can enjoy spa treatments, diving lessons and water sports or can simply lounge on the beach -- often the best place to meet other singles.
