Situated in a remote corner of the Nicoya Peninsula
in Guanacaste province
, Punta Islita is a secluded, private and pristine area away from the hub dub of Costa Rica’s touristy beaches. The ideal destination for anyone looking for some peace and quiet, Punta Islita is a haven of tranquility and luxury with some of the most stunning scenery in the entire region.
Isolated and uncrowded, not many people come to Punta Islita by themselves. Those who do visit the area usually stay at the Hotel Punta Islita, a luxury resort by the Pacific shore. With its own private airstrip and airport, this hotel offers elegant rooms and luxurious accommodations.
To get to Punta Islita most people catch a daily scheduled Nature Air flight from the San Jose International Airport
in San Jose. With an estimated flying time of less than one hour, getting to Punta Islita can be quite expensive for the budget traveler. However, flying is the best way to get here as most roads leading to this romantic escape are very poor and are dirt paved. Reaching Punta Islita during the rainy season is near impossible, as most of the roads leading to here get either flooded or washed away.
Besides regular commercial Nature Air flights, the Hotel Punta Islita offers its guests private pick and drop facilities when they arrive and depart from San Jose.
