Costa Rican Club

What is the Costa Rican Club? Think of it as a house concert-meets beach party-meets tropical mystery tour-meets relaxation. Brian and Marty have fine tuned this winter getaway trip to “one resort-one week” of sun and music. Some options are available, but unlike the other tours offered this tour is limited in numbers who can sign up. Costa Rica is on Central Time and roughly five hours flight from Chicago. No jet lag, on the beach the day you leave and intimate, exciting seaside concerts by the guys. It’s not a trip, it’s a club and you are invited!

Costa Rica Club is officially a go with a new format: Thaw Out and Chill Out! The dates of the tour are February 19 through 24, 2020. We are offering an exceptional bargain as we stay at one all-inclusive location: The Occidental Tamarindo. Our group stayed there last year and all agreed that it was one of the finest experiences they had ever had. 

Yes, everything is included in our price of $1979 (except airfare; get yourself there however you like).All meals, snacks, and beverages are covered! Not only is it located on a great Blue Flag Beach (a distinction given to beaches who earn high marks for cleanliness. ecological sustainability and safety), it’s also just next door to the lively surf-side pedestrian-friendly town of Tamarindo. 

The Occidental Tamarindo is just 1 hour and 20 minutes away from Liberia International Airport (LIR) which makes this trip easy, comfortable and the most convenient way to visit Costa Rica. We avoid altogether the hustle of San Jose, plus the long trip to reach the coast. We will quickly get to the Pacific Ocean to relax on Central Standard Time.

Since our group is leaving from several airports, group air for this trip is not available through Southwest, the preferred airline to Costa Rica. If you like, arrangements can be made through Celtic to book your airfare on Southwest. All the information is on the attached application, and Alaine at Celtic will ensure that you get not only the best rate, but also that you arrive on time.

We also are offering two exceptional optional excursions if you wish to leave the beach for a spell. Brian and I will have our annual Sunset Beach concert and other shows will be announced.  

Space is limited so reserve your spot today! We are looking for either 6 more couples or 12 individuals. Download the application, get it in with your deposit, and welcome to the Club!
