Punta Islita, Guanacaste

Overlooking some of the best views of the Nicoya Peninsula, Punta Islita is an idyllic hilltop hideaway. Choose to simply unwind on the hotel’s volcanic beach or beside the heavenly infinity pool and feel instantly at ease. Or, for a touch of adventure, immerse yourself in the more energetic activities from canopy zip-lining, horse-riding, surfing, or sea kayaking out on the azure ocean.


Situated amid stunning tropical gardens high above a long secluded beach on Costa Rica’s Pacific coast, Punta Islita is magical retreat. Promising rugged landscapes, stunning beaches, a thriving tropical forest and colourful local Guanacaste culture, this luxury resort goes the extra mile to fuse luxury with a commitment to sustainability and local economic development.

Your room

Everything at Punta Islita is designed for sumptuous comfort and relaxation. The suites come with jacuzzis and private decks and locally hand-made four-poster beds. If you’re looking for more privacy and to truly indulge in everything Punta Islita has to offer, opt to stay in one of the villas with its own pool, garden and terrace.

Why we like it

We can’t get enough of the candlelit dinners at Punta Islita’s two exceptional open-air restaurants. For a touch more privacy, opt for a private dinner on the beach as the perfect romantic finale to a day in paradise. We also love winding down at the world-class spa, offering soothing therapies inspired by the local Chorotega tribes.
