Two new reasons to make sun-drenched Costa Rica your destination-to-discover in 2014

Every now and again we all crave to leave behind the hustle and bustle of modern life and escape to a luxury retreat – and with many parts of the UK still heavily flooded, many of us are already mentally planning an escape to warmer shores as soon as we can get away this year.

With work hours and the demands of everyday life more manic than ever, a “do (almost) nothing” holiday lazing on sun-soaked beaches is the perfect battery recharge and now thanks to Interval International, timeshare owners can experience the charms and lush scenery of northern Costa Rica from an idyllic hillside location.

Interval have just unveiled their newest properties, Residence Club at Coco Bay and the Residence Club at Vista Ocotal and both shared ownership resorts are tucked away in the heart of the spectacular northern Pacific Coast of Costa Rica.

Nestled on a hill with million dollar views, within the grounds of Coco Bay Estates, Residence Club at Coco Bay boasts 33 spacious units, each offering stunning views of landscaped gardens or the Papagayo Bay.

Luxurious from the outside in, each residence is elegantly decorated with warm colours and stone floors. The accommodations include a living and dining room, fully equipped kitchen, state-of-the-art electronics, and a covered terrace for drinks or finishing that good book on a warm afternoon.

The second resort, Residence Club at Vista Ocotal, is located in the coastal resort community of Playa Ocotal and has 19 units (all of varying sizes) which are surrounded by lush tropical gardens.

The resort offers real home-from-home comforts for a relaxing self-catering holiday. Each residence has a living and dining room, kitchen with stainless steel appliances and granite countertops, tile flooring, and Wi-Fi access.

Members of either resort enjoy full access to the tempting array of amenities at Coco Bay Estates, including a restaurant, club house, tennis and fitness centre, spa services, sauna, 120-foot swimming pool, and the private Ocotal Beach Club.

This part of the world is a haven for nature lovers. Part of Costa Rica’s world-famous Gold Coast, the region of Guanacaste has some of the country’s most spectacular natural wonders.

While the beautiful beaches will tempt most visitors, there are plenty of other outdoor activities to try – explore the waterfalls, hike to the volcano at Rincon de la Vieja National Park, dive or for an exciting morning out, go deep-sea fishing in Bahia Salinas.
