Punta Islita

Location: Northern Pacific Coast | Costa Rica

Perched on a hilltop above its own private beach, the breathtaking ocean views and utter seclusion at charming Punta Islita make it one of our Costa Rican favourites.
Perfect forR&R. Whilst soft adventure and beach activities are all on hand, dragging yourself away from the infinity pool might be your biggest challenge! Although popular for romantic escapes, the villas at Punta Islita cater perfectly for families too.
In the knowPunta Islita places huge importance on the local community and more than 3% of Punta Islita’s annual turnover goes towards the community. The ‘Destination Tour’ provides a fantastic opportunity to visit the local community and witness these impressive projects.
