A Hidden Tropical Paradise

Hotel Costa Verde is located in the North Puntarenas region in the Central Pacific area along the Pacific Ocean side of Costa Rica. Just south of Quepos in the city of Manuel Antonio, this incredible resort is tucked away on the side of a small bluff overlooking the ocean. At 157km, or a little less than 100 miles from the main airport in Costa Rica, the San José International Airport (SJO), you can expect a 3 hour car ride to arrive at the Hotel Costa Verde.

Hotel Costa Verde prides itself on being a sustainable property, meaning much of the construction, including the post and beams used were repurposed local Costa Rican wood. The craftsmanship of the furnishings will amaze you, wonderfully designed, artful pieces all decorated with Costa Rican flare.

Beyond the supporting structure, the décor of the property is very unique as well. Recycled bottles have been made into funky lights, planes repurposed in suites and mulch added from recycled trees. Sustainability is the key word here and nothing goes to waste.

Beaches are plentiful in the immediate area including the closest, Playa Espadilla North, just a short 1300 feet from the property. Other nearby beaches great for spending a day soaking in the sun include Playa Playitas, La Macha Beach, Playa Espadilla South and Playa Biesanz.

From the helipad, also known as the wedding deck, you can see nearby Manuel Antonio National Park. The central location provides options for things to do nearby such as sunbathing, horseback ride, hiking and fishing. The hotel is an ideal place for families and a popular choice for a romantic getaway for couples as well.

Each of the 70 rooms on the property have a spectacular plush jungle surrounding, many with ocean views. The way the property and rooms are tucked in the trees allows for the guest to experience the sights and sounds of toucans, monkeys and sloths. Some even believe that there are more monkeys than people on the property!

If you’re looking to stay somewhere truly unique, Hotel Costa Verde has taken three retired planes and converted them into three separate suites on property. Not many people can say they’ve vacationed in an airplane, but with a stay in one of these most unique rooms in Costa Rica, you can say you’ve spent the night in a plane!

The property has a number of onsite restaurants to choose from including the Anaconda, El Avion, Contras Pub, El Wagon, La Cantina and Baguette Bakery & Café. Room service is also available upon request and you can even request a box lunch to take with you on your outings.

When it comes to variety of choices, there really is something for everyone.

Hotel Costa Verde also has three incredible swimming pools. The Pool Bar can be found in the 18 and over Costa Verde ll area. The area provides everything from soft drinks, ice cold smoothies, beer and a full selection of refreshing cocktails. In addition to the Adults only pool there are two other pools on the property which are great for guests of all ages.

Free parking is available if needed and taxis and shuttles can be arranged for an additional charge. Housekeeping is available daily and if you need some items washed, a full service wash and dry service is available. Also know that wifi is offered free of charge in rooms and common areas.

The property has meeting facilities and a tour desk ready to help you plan your adventures. If relaxation is your goal, center yourself with a yoga class or massage for an additional charge.
