Costa Rica is a land of wonder, where houseplants grow as large as redwoods and sitting still listening to the howler monkeys is an adventure.  We’ve planned one day of cultural activities designed so you could experience Costa Rica’s romantic past and gain a deeper understanding of Pura Vida. 

But you have more free time to explore this incredible destination. We have arranged for AMSTAR, our Destination expert friends, will be with us each day to answer questions about the area and to help you if you wanted to sign up for an additional tour or activity for Friday or Sunday on your own.  These activities will be arranged by ESP & AMSTAR and must be reserved & paid for at the time of booking.  Options include:

  • Deep Sea Fishing
  • Horseback Riding
  • Ziplining
  • Diamante Adventure Park
  • Spa Treatment: Massage, Body Treatment, Facial, Manicure / Pedicure, Hair


The Guanacaste region is so unique, we want everyone to have a fully immersed experience.  This year, CornerStone Staffing guests will enjoy a regional treasure:

Hacienda El Viejo Wetlands.

Hacienda El Viejo is a Costa Rican family-owned property with a large sugar cane plantation and their own private wildlife reserve bordering the Palo Verde National Park. Their 5,000-acre reserve protects part of the Tempisque River and one of the most important and endangered ecosystems in the world: the tropical dry forest. 

It’s home to the one of the largest numbers of migratory birds in Central America as well as iguanas, crocodiles, bats, monkeys and many more animals.  And guests will be able to view the flora and fauna up close as CornerStone Staffing will have exclusive enjoyment of the hacienda (estate in English) and its 3 different activities including: a cultural tour, wildlife observation boat ride and rum making. 

A group lunch will be provided and we will return to the resort in plenty of time to change for the evening’s dine-around.

Make sure you wear comfortable clothes and shoes for walking.  Bring a hat, sunscreen, insect repellent, sunglasses and a camera.  The Hacienda also has a modest gift shop if you are needing souvenirs. 


In addition to the Resort’s Spa and Fitness Center, the JW Marriott Guanacaste offers a robust schedule of daily activities, many of which we have made private for CornerStone Staffing.  

Please let us know if you have interest in participating in the following:

  • Yoga
  • Mixology Class
  • Water Aerobics
  • Cooking Class
  • Bike Tour 
  • Latin Dance Class

Daily shuttle to Tamarindo  departs from the hotel every hour from 10:00 AM to 2:00 PM, and departs Tamarindo to hotel at 2:30 PM, 3:30 PM, & 4:30 PM.


Please let us know which of the hotel activities you’d be interested in, and Lori and Dara can add you to the class.  If we have enough interest in a class or activity, we will make arrangements for it to be held exclusively for CornerStone Staffing.
