Immerse yourself in the magnificent natural beauty of Costa Rica and enjoy unique guest experiences at the Hotel Punta Islita. This luxury beach resort in the nation's Guanacaste region combines lush landscapes and local pastimes in signature offerings for which it has become known. With more than 3,000 acres, the resort includes an almost private, secluded beach and forest area that you can explore and delight in.

Included with a stay is a variety of complimentary activities that introduce visitors to the culture and people that inhabit this spectacular region. Hotel-led art instruction, horseback rides, zip-line adventures and lessons in local cooking are among an array of activity options and are designed to add to a guest's enjoyment of the resort area and overall Costa Rica vacation experience.

The resort offers guests their choice of rooms, suites or villas, each drawing inspiration from its surroundings. In harmony with nature, the buildings are a blend of Spanish-colonial and regional architecture with a tropical flair in acknowledgment of their location. Families and couples find the setting an excellent choice for family fun or romantic getaways and honeymoons.

The spacious layouts, lush green foliage and tiered foundations that support the terraced guest villas give privacy to those who want to enjoy a unique getaway. Built-in spaces invite visitors to drink in the spectacular view of beaches that stretch into oceans and lush green forest scenes that they can make their own.

On the resort's top terrace is Pacifico Restaurant, one of two restaurants on the property. With a thatched palm ceiling and open design that reflects traditional regional architecture, Pacifico dishes up fresh seafood, tropical fruit and area favorites in a setting that includes a breathtaking view of the ocean beyond. Just outside the restaurant is an infinity-edge swimming pool that offers a refreshing dip.

On the beach level is Los Cocos Beachfront Club, which opens to a secluded beach and tropical gardens. The club offers a family swimming pool and casual ambiance, along with a playground for children and private cabanas. This is a favorite spot for guests to catch some sun, swim and keep an eye out for colorful red macaws. Restaurant fare includes hamburgers, pizza, salads, fresh seafood and specialty desserts.
