There are many destinations to choose from when you take a vacation, and I have been to a lot. But nothing compares to Palacio Tropical in Costa Rica. It is absolutely beautiful and a great time whether you’re with friends or family. The staff is unbelievable and it is without a doubt a five star resort! I can’t wait to go back. – Jim Kelly

Our first time to Costa Rica and we had the time of our lives. My wife and I celebrated my 50th birthday with 7 other couples. The house and location is amazing. We were taken care of like royalty by 6 staff members for the 7 day trip. The food was fantastic. We will definitely go back.

Our first trip to Costa Rica was epic and all we can say is WOW! Palacio Tropical is such a beautiful home with all of the amenities. Full service in every way. We took 6 other couples (7 couples / 14 people total) and everyone had the trip of a lifetime. Kim was a pleasure to deal with from the start handling every detail including meals and transportation from the airport to the home and then from the home back to the airport. Every meal was prepared by the staff at home and every meal was incredible. They even made us a great breakfast “to go” for our trek back to the airport when we left. We had a driver and a 14 seat van and the staff was happy to take us anywhere we wanted to go. The home works best for 7 couples or 14 people. 7 main bedrooms in the home all with bathrooms. 14 seats at the dinner table and 14 seats in the van. No need for a rental car! I highly recommend the meal package since there are very few restaurant choices around the home. The food was incredible and I don’t think that we could have had a better meal at a restaurant. There is so much adventure right by the home. A great beach right out the backdoor and waterfalls that spill right into the ocean within walking distance from the home. Zip-lining, great surfing beaches, waterfalls, hiking and other adventures that are just a short drive away. All of our friends are all still talking about “Our Epic Trip to Costa Rica”! We can’t wait to go back!
