 The Resort

Riu Palace Costa Rica is located in Guanacaste, Costa Rica. It is approximately a 1 hour transfer ride from the airport. (Transfer included) IT is right on the edge of the beach of Matapalo and features 4 swimming pools (some complete with swim-up bars), 4 different themed restaurants, an award-winning spa, fantastic night club and countless cocktail lounges. If fitness is your thing, the resort offers many volleyball courts, a fitness studio, or water activities.

The Riu Palace is next door to its sister resort, the Riu Guanacaste, which allows you to have privileges at both resorts, meaning access to even more pools and restaurants, but the Riu Guanacaste Guests cannot come to the Riu Palace.

Each standard double resort room features clean, comfortable beds, dressers and storage areas, air conditioning, free Wi-Fi, satellite TV, a programmable safe and a fully stocked mini bar with beverage dispensers that are restocked regularly. Each resort room also includes a balcony with chairs and towel racks to help dry out your beach wear. The bathroom features dual sinks, a glass shower with adjustable shower head, hairdryer and fresh towels daily.

Food & Drink

You’ll never go hungry at the Riu Palace! This resort features 4 different themed restaurants plus an incredible buffet. Each night we will meet for dinner at a different themed restaurant within the resort. 

There is something for everyone and the breakfast and lunch buffets have endless options, so you are never eating the same thing twice! These feature hot and cold buffet options, live cooking stations, assorted pizza, pastas, salads and a full dessert bar.

With over 12 cocktail bars throughout the two resort, drinks are never far away either. They feature unlimited local and imported beverages 24 hrs a day, premium branded drinks throughout the hotel and they can custom make any drink your heart desires! 


Get ready for an adrenaline-pumping Costa Rica ATV adventure like no other! Brace yourself as you speed through the lush Costa Rican Forest, exploring off-road trails that wind through vibrant vegetation. But the excitement doesn’t end there—engage in the local culture as you drive into a charming small town, witnessing the everyday life of the friendly locals. Led by expert guides, this 2-hour off-road ATV adventure is the perfect blend of thrills, nature, and unforgettable experiences. Perfect for all ages!

On another afternoon of the trip, we will discover the incredible biodiversity of Costa Rica and its wonderful wildlife by booking your place on the Palo Verde Boat Tour. An ecological tour that will forever remain in your memory!

Start this tour in a tourist bus that will take you through the countryside of Costa Rica, where you will see extensive sugar cane plantations. It will take you to the Palo Verde National Park, where more than 60 types of birds used the wetland or lagoon as a migratory stopover. Because of its extensive variety of wildlife, it was declared a wildlife refuge during the 1970s. It is also one of the last dry tropical rainforests that once covered most of Central America.

Upon arrival you will board a boat to navigate the Tempisque River. You will be accompanied by an expert guide, who will inform you about the actions taken to preserve the park, as well as interesting facts about the habitat of howler monkeys, white-faced monkeys, pizotes, American crocodiles, as well as more than 300 species of migratory birds and the famous “palo verde” tree, a true jewel of Costa Rica’s nature!

Workshops & Activities

While your vacation is certainly yours to do with what you want, we have added in some fun programs, workshops and parties exclusively available to RMR guests for you to join at anytime to make the most of your week away!

Every morning we will offer activities to start your day! Maybe you want to try a hot new fitness trend before you hit the beach or take part in a mindful meditation. Perhaps a little friendly competition will get your blood pumping in our sandcastle building contest, or you’ll create a masterpiece in our guided art workshop. If reflection is more your thing, breathe and relax during a sunrise yoga session on the beach or reflect and make goals for the future in our guided journaling workshop. Whatever you fancy, mornings are a great time to reconnect with the group and chat about your previous day. 

Each afternoon around 3pm we will have optional activities like you can attend if you need a break from the sun, like a resort wide Scavenger Hunt (winnner gets some spending cash!), Spanish Dance Lessons, Jewelry Making, Mixology Classes, Intro to Spanish, or ramp it up and set your thrill metre to high as you cheer each other on during our Water Games! 

But the fun doesn’t stop there! Evenings at our Tropical Girls Getaway are filled with entertainment and dancing! After dinner each night we will either be checking out the giant stage shows often featuring Magicians, Acrobats, or renditions of Broadway Musicals or jumping into the themed dance parties hosted by the resort!
