Punta Islita, Nicoyan Peninsula

The Nicoyan Peninsula’s hippest hangout, the award-winning Punta Islita is made up of a perfect group of huts set in their own idyllic secluded bay. Choose to simply unwind on the hotel’s volcanic beach, or beside the heavenly infinity pool, for an experience to soothe your mind and calm your body. Or 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 colorful local Guanacaste communities, this luxury resort goes the extra mile to fuse luxury with a commitment to sustainability and local economic development. A hotel with a heart, just how we like it.

Your room

Everything at Punta Islista is designed for sumptuous comfort and relaxation. The suites come with jacuzzis and private decks (perfect for that all-important sundowner) 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 a villa with it’s own pool, garden and dining 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 real treat you can organise a private dinner on the beach, 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.
