W.A.T.W. - The Bachelor in Costa Rica

There are some things in life you should never be ashamed to admit.  In my opinion, Reality TV addiction is at the top of the list!  My TiVo is one of the hardest working appliances in our house and pretty high on the list of what to grab on the way out in the event of a fire!  (I'm kidding of course - or am I?)   Monday nights are a favorite of mine for 2 reasons.  The Bachelor and The Bachelorette.   I know I'm not alone as viewers of both of these popular series number in the millions.  I gather it's no mistake that as the number of viewers rise and more seasons come and go, ABC is finding new ways to keep us watching - as though the drama the show entails isn't enough!  Whatever their reason, it works for me as the various locales are some of the most spectacular in the world!

The latest season of The Bachelor was a season like no other.  I mean they brought back one of the dooffiest (the only word I could think of to describe Brad Womack) bachelors...EVER, rounded up several available bachelorettes and as the season wore on and girls were eliminated, sent the final 8 off to Costa Rica for some mystery and romance.  Once there they stayed at The Springs Resort and Spa.  Since that episode aired we've been getting numerous requests for more information so I thought W.A.T.W. would be the perfect place to share a few details of this quite amazing resort!

The Springs Resort and Spa is a 165 acre luxury boutique five star hotel in La Fortuna, Arenal, Costa Rica with the best view of the Arenal Volcano and the most onsite guest amenities including a 14,000 square foot full service Spa, hot springs, a kilometer of frontage on the Arenal River and a wildlife rescue preserve with 25 rescued jungle cats and monkeys.

The Resort is best described as a romantic boutique hotel that is a perfect honeymoon destination, but also a great family resort with many children’s activities. It is located a mere 20 minutes from the main town of La Fortuna in a secure, self contained and family-friendly resort atmosphere.The resort boasts 18 hot springs pools spanning over 4 acres of landscaped recreational area there is plenty of room to spread out and relax. Each Guest Room and Villa at The Springs Resort and Spa includes a Private Terrace with Balcony and Picturesque Volcano view.

They offer a wide array of on and off-site tours for the adventurous or if you're like me and your idea of vacation is a pina colada, a lounge chair and a great book, their 18 freeform, landscaped pools allow you to do just that.  The resort also offers Destination Wedding Packages, Spa packages and Day Visitor Passes.  Contact us and we'd love to help you find the perfect Costa Rica vacation for you!

Season 22 Bachelor - Brad Womack (sorry, Brad...couldn't resist ;))
 As the bachelorettes were eliminated, the travels continued to Anguilla and South Africa but I'll save those equally exotic destinations for another time.  If you're not a fan of the show, in the end Brad chose Emily.  Word on the street is the engagement didn't last but I'm sure the memories of Costa Rica, a beautiful and magical place, will last a long, long time.
