Costa Rica HOLIDAY season 2019


WELCOME Welcome to the JW Marriott Guanacaste Resort & Spa, and thank you for choosing us to spend these holidays. We invite you to discover the program of activities that we have prepared, so you can disconnect from daily stress and enjoy your holidays in a natural and unique environment. Do not forget to visit our Spa for total relaxation, or enjoy our varied gastronomic offer in our restaurants. Also this year as a novelty, we invite you to enter the rum universe in our new Flor de CaĂąa Rum Bar. Welcome back and Pura Vida!


COSTA RICA A CUSTOM BLEND Since Costa Rica was a colony of the Spanish Empire, the country’s culture was directly influenced by the Spanish culture in religion, gastronomy, language and traditions. Blended with the native customs, this resulted in a very rich identity that remained until modern days. At present, due to immigration and globalization, people adopted new traditions that made diversity an important part of the costarican celebrations. JW Marriott Guanacaste welcomes you to experience with us this custom blend, and feel the matchless warmth of its people.


ENJOY JW Marriott Guanacaste thanks you for celebrating the coming of a new year with us. Since you chose our hotel to be your home during these holidays, we have prepared unique experiences for your stay. From the Christmas manger assemble to the New Year’s celebration, we want to honor local and global traditions, with a touch of uplifting culture.
