We like our beaches peaceful and quiet, but if you’re a bit more into the family-meets-happy-hour-holiday, than Papagayo Beach Club is your thing. Comfortable sun beds, parasols and a pool-style beach make this the ultimate tropical set-up. Cool down in the restaurant for a club sandwich or get the latest news on your iPad while you sip on a cocktail close to the bar. Make sure to bring a sundress and some glitzy sandals, as this place turns into a club later at night with mellow beats, sushi, tapas and lobster. Enjoy the island life!
