Dreams Las Mareas is in a remote area of Guanacaste on the northern coast of Costa Rica. The road from the Liberia airport to the resort is very bad but improvements are underway. It took us about 90 minutes. The resort is very secluded, small mountains on three sides and the beach on the fourth side. The beach has soft brown sand with some shade trees. There were several people snorkeling at the end of the beach.
The grounds of the resort had areas of great beauty and other areas which needed maintenance. Insects were plentiful but we didn’t experience any “biting” ones. There were flowering bushes that were covered with butterflies. The best part of the grounds was the pool area down by the beach… very picturesque.
In the pool area were a few Tiki bars and a Tiki restaurant which made the best nachos ever and the burgers were excellent also. We would rate the food in the restaurants as very good although the selection was a little bit less than most resorts in the same price range. However, we did not sample all six restaurants. This is definitely not a party resort. It is more about relaxation and enjoying the beauty of the area.
The rooms were clean and spacious but some people may not like the lack of privacy in the bathroom area. Also there was not enough closet or dresser space for clothing. The jacuzzi on the balcony was nice but with so many insects around we didn’t use it.
Tours to volcanoes, white water rafting and horse-back riding in Costa Rica and Nicaragua (less than 1 hour from the resort) are available. If you have done Mexico, Jamaica, Punta Cana and you want to try a new beach resort vacation then you may want to consider Costa Rica. Costa Rica’s tourism industry is in its infancy but it has tremendous potential.
