Portofino meets the Pacific in the vivid palette and Mediterranean-flavored architecture of El Careyes Beach Resort. Lodgings
overlook the rocky islets that shelter the cove and crescent-shape beach.
Painted in sunset hues, the resort resembles a whimsical Mediterranean village wrapped around a palm-studded piazza.
Guests can bike trails that extend across a golf course woven into the jungle at El Tamarindo.
Marrying palapa roofs, outdoor lounge areas, plunge pools, and obscuring foliage, the 29 villas of 2,040-acre El Tamarindo epitomize the discreet retreat.
The accommodations feature private plunge pools, open living areas, and air-conditioned bedrooms and baths.
