The Springs and Peace Lodge in Costa Rica

By: Debbie Banks, Lago Mar Resort and Club Hi! Sorry about being MIA for a little while but I took the kids on an amazing vacation to our sister properties in Costa Rica. I was lucky enough to go last October with my brother and about 70 of his closest friends to see Peace Lodge, which he opened in 2000, and walk through his La Paz Waterfall Gardens Nature Park and stay at The Springs Resort in Arenal! It was on that spectacular trip ...

Tennis News and Court Updates

By: Debbie Banks, Lago Mar Resort and Club Hi! I am so excited to share some pictures of our newly resurfaced tennis courts on the beach.

Throwback Thursday Before I was Born

By: Debbie Banks, Lago Mar Resort and Club Happy Throwback Thursday to everyone! I wanted to share this picture of my parents standing in the original lobby of Lago Mar a little over 48 years ago. They were actually on their way to Broward General Hospital, where my mom would give birth to me later that day! No one can believe she was 9 months pregnant in that picture but she was. Also, they were at the front desk to cash a check for $150.00 ...

Beautiful Saturday at the Beach

By: Debbie Banks, Lago Mar Resort and Club Hi! I wanted to share a picture of how beautiful the ocean was Saturday morning! The kids and I went over to Acquario for the breakfast buffet and feasted on Chef Henry's delicious Mickey Mouse pancakes. Over the summer the girls play at a tennis academy for 5 hours each day so they have quite the appetite! In addition to the pancakes they had bacon, sausage, and each had their own special omelet made perfectly by ...

Lago Mar’s Connection to the Military

By: Debbie Banks, Lago Mar Resort and Club Hi! Since this month is National Military Appreciation Month, I decided to blog about Lago Mar's connection to the military! My own personal connection is my membership in the Tiffany Circle of the Red Cross. Tiffany circle members are philanthropists who contribute $10,000 annually to their local Red Cross. Each year we have a summit in Washington D.C. and last year I had the privilege to meet and have my picture taken with one of the Seal Team ...
