Makeover: Riu Opens First Water Park in Costa Rica

Riu WaterPark in Costa Rica

Splash WaterWorld!  Another water park in the books for Riu – and a first for Costa Rica!

In a nutshell: Riu has opened the first Splash Water World in Costa Rica for guests of both Riu Guanacaste and Riu Palace Costa Rica, located on Matapalo Beach.

This new fun activity was created for kids of all ages.

If you’re a fan of water parks then you’ll find plenty to do at this one as it’s equipped with:

  • Five slides
  • Four-lane Aquaracer slide
  • Two body bowl tubes
  • Aqua-games with jets and water pistols
  • And, a pool area for smaller kiddos

Which Resort in Costa Rica calls out to you?

5-star Guanacaste (10-years old) has 700 rooms, five restaurants, five bars, three pools, and is family-friendly, of course.
Upscale Riu Palace Costa Rica (7-years old) has 500+ rooms, five restaurants, and seven bars. There’s also a casino and spa, shared with Riu Guanacaste guests.
