Punta Islita is one of Costa Rica’s most unique beach hotels. With access to this remote spot usually made by a scenic flight to a tiny airstrip, it one of the few quality beach hotels where you really can escape the crowds. The beach here is best considered wild and natural rather than idyllic, with its black sand and lively surf frequently washing in driftwood used by artists in the local community. However you can still enjoy a relaxing swim in the pool located right on the edge of beach with its own snack bar and pool service, or closer to the main restaurant in the hotel’s impressive infinity pool which boasts sweeping views. All rooms are elegantly furnished and feature their own secluded terrace and hammock, with higher categories offering their own plunge pools. Punta Islita is also a true pioneer in responsible tourism and you will see this in action throughout your stay, from its sophisticated recycling project to its ongoing and meaningful support of the local community, which you can visit during your stay.
