Hotel & Travel



JW Marriott Guanacaste Resort & Spa
Hacienda Pinilla
Guanacaste, Costa Rica


The JW Marriott Guanacaste Resort & Spa is the host hotel for the 50th Anniversary Meeting.  You’ll have an authentic Costa Rican experience at this luxury hacienda-style resort that sits on the oceanfront in Hacienda Pinilla, Costa Rica. Surrounded by the splendors of the country’s rich biodiversity, the JW Marriott offers a top-ranked spa along with an 18-hole golf course nearby.  Off-site activities such as zip-lining, white water rafting and tours to national parks and volcanoes can be arranged on site.  At the nearby village of Tamarindo, you’ll find restaurants, bars and souvenirs in a Pura Vida laid back atmosphere.

We have blocked rooms for March 13 through March 16. Our special room rate will be honored two days before and two days after the meeting, based on availability.

Attendees are eligible for a special room rate (plus tax and service charges) of $325 for a garden view or $365 for an ocean view by:

There are certain states that have not yet met the new ID requirements and as of January 22, 2018passengers in those states will have difficulty traveling without an accepted ID, such as a Passport. Travelers should be prepared for their IDs to be challenged, even in states with waivers, extensions, or grace periods. You can check to see your state's status here. Older drivers’ licenses will be an issue in some states, and we would encourage all meeting attendees to travel with US government-issued IDs/passports, even when traveling domestically, to ensure they do not encounter any issues during this time period.
