Hotel Punta Islita

160, Islita, Costa Rica 50906 

Tucked away on an undisturbed and undulating hillside overlooking the Nicoya Peninsula and the azure waters of the Pacific Ocean, Hotel Punta Islita is a mirror-like reflection of Costa Rica's enduring culture, vast natural beauty, and its authentic customs and traditions.

The hotel's sequestered setting minimizes distractions and allows you to slow down and enjoy all that a great vacation has to offer. That includes spectacular views that extend beyond the hotel's crystal-clear infinity pool; luxurious rooms and villas topped by 50-foot thatched palm cone ceilings with exposed wood frameworks; alfresco dining at gourmet restaurants specializing in traditional Costa Rican cuisine; open-air public spaces; a 9-hole golf course; and the relaxing treatments offered at our on-site, full-service spa.

But just because Hotel Punta Islita is secluded, that doesn't mean that it's isolated from the surrounding Costa Rican community. At the hotel, you can learn how to make authentic ceviche or picadillo dishes from local experts, or work along side community artists to create original Costa Rican pottery or embroidery. Nearby, you can enjoy Costa Rican eco-adventures like river kayaking, zip lining, monkey-spotting safaris, night-time sea turtle watching excursions, or bird-watching hikes lead by local guides.
