Hotels in Costa Rica
Hotels in Costa Rica are practically as diverse as the country's eco-system. While there are outstanding five-star hotels in San Jose, many of the best retreats are located on otherwise uninhabited beaches and within little-explored jungles. Here, our top picks for eco-tourist digs.
- Asclepios Wellness & Healing Retreat is set on 12,500 acres of rainforest just outside the busy city of Alajuela. Make a reservation at the resort's restaurant to eat meals prepared with fresh ingredients straight from the on-site garden.
- Kura Design Villas is one of the best hotels in Costa Rica and an excellent choice for laid-back adventure. The villa sits in a rainforest in the not lesser-explored Osa Peninsula, just a 20-minute drive from the town of Uvita. It has great views of jungle-lined beaches.
- Florblanca Resort is a collection of private villas staggered on a beautiful hillside steps away from Playa Santa Teresa. Of all the hotels in Costa Rica, this one offers some of the largest and most luxurious villas. The attentive service and the food are also fantastic.
