Where To Stay in Nicoya Peninsula Costa Rica - Los Delfines Villa

Golf, Exotic Animals, Rainforests, Waterfalls and Miles of Perfect Beaches Await

As a part-time golf writer, I am always searching for my next golf travel destination. Some years, you have to think big, and Costa Rica has come up on my radar for the 2020 Golf Travel Destination.

Costa Rica, for me, has always been known for its beaches, volcanoes, and biodiversity. Roughly a quarter of its area comprises a protected jungle teeming with extravagant wildlife, including howler monkeys and scarlet macaws. So why Costa Rica?

Well, it's funny how things pan out. It didn't start by searching for golf courses first, then a place to stay (like usual). It began by finding a fantastic new villa at Los Delfines that just happens to be located on the golf paradise known as the Los Delfines Golf & Country Club beachfront community (gated/guarded w/24-hour security).

You can play golf one day or try some horseback riding. Beachcombing and relaxing on the beach are only a few things you can do without driving from the community.

Variety is life's spice, especially for a golfer looking for adventure in Costa Rica. A rain-forested paradise with rugged coastlines on the Caribbean and Pacific. If you want to venture, how about an ATV ride to a remote waterfall or secluded beach. How about a mud bath at an active volcano or an island trip with snorkelling and food included. All these day tours are arranged on-site.

From Golf Advisor:

Los Delfines Golf and Country Club sits on a bay along the Pacific on the Nicoya Peninsula. This nine-hole course plays 6,374 yards over 18 and has recently been renovated. A round begins on a 337-yard par-4 that requires a driver or 3-wood to an open fairway, followed by a mid- or short iron to the sloping pear-shaped green, steering clear of the front bunker, for par or a birdie. The longest hole is the eighth, a par-5 472-yarder through trees, requiring positioning from the tee, a mid- or short iron lay-up - minding water right and left - to make the two-level green approachable, if well-guarded; birdie if you can. The ninth, a 149-yard par 3, requires good work from the tee followed by a mid- or short iron to the uphill green, though bunkers right and left require accuracy to achieve par.

Spectacular tropical paradise!
