Enjoy picture-postcard perfection when you plan a vacation at Hotel Punta Leona in Costa Rica. Pristine, white-sand beaches, crystal-clear aquamarine waters and lush tropical rainforest combine to bring you an idyllic setting that can be as tranquil as a beach at sunset or as heart-thumping as carving a wave or tackling tuna while deep-sea fishing. Punta Leone can be whatever you make it and the hotel offers a variety of options for whatever you choose.

Walk nature trails in the reserve, by night if you dare, with a guide to ensure you don’t miss a beautiful scarlet macaw or bright-colored tree frog. Visit a butterfly garden and drink in the sight of the deep blue morpho. Take a kayak tour or try boogie boarding, surfing or snorkeling off the beach.

Get active and stay fit while you’re on vacation with a variety of instructor-led classes such as tai chi, aerobics or yoga. If you want to enjoy your exercise, join one of a variety of tournaments, including water polo, ping-pong, water basketball and more. Soccer, tennis, beach volleyball and miniature golf are also available.

Stay fueled for fun with your choice of beachfront or rainforest restaurant, light poolside fare or steak and seafood grille that offers couples a romantic setting. When you’re ready for some time off from having all that fun, take advantage of spa services or swimming-pool lounge areas.

The hotel facilities may best be described as a small subdivision, with clusters of like facilities interspersed with resort amenities and restaurants. For example, four-unit apartment clusters are in the same residential area, with a condo building or two toward the side and some two-unit structures toward the back. A swimming pool, restaurant and chapel are also in this general area.

Roughly one-half mile away is a central area that might be considered a “community area/clubhouse grounds” with facilities that include tennis courts, swimming pools, an amphitheater and a mini-mart convenience store. There are also some cabana apartments and a restaurant here. The third main area, another half-mile or so further, moves away from the cluster design to allow villas and condos more privacy.
