Maroon yourselves on a tiny, lush island amid the calm waters of the Gulf of Nicoya at this unique Costa Rica resort. Combining glamping-style accommodation with hotel-level services and facilities makes Isla Chiquita the perfect base from which to experience the beauty and wonder of this charming Central American country.
Just 15 glamping tents are situated on the island, all with comfortable double beds and full bathrooms featuring double-basin sinks, as well as a large attractive outdoor decking area from which to enjoy the sea views right at your door.
At meal times you can enjoy fresh fish and seafood right by the water at Tía Nora, the resort’s charming restaurant and bar. There are also a selection of pizzas and vegetarian options available here.
As you can imagine, there’s plenty of opportunity to get out on the gulf itself. Whether by boat, kayak or paddleboard, this is a great way to survey the local coast and maybe spot some wildlife along the way.
The freedom afforded by the island’s small size and safety means children will adore the time they spend here, and we highly recommend it as a stop on a Costa Rica family holiday.
15 glamping tents with king-size bed, daybed, electric lights, ceiling fan and full bathroom. Each tent sleeps up to 3 people.
