Hoteliers in Costa Rica are extremely conscious of their carbon footprint, and as a result, even the most upscale and boutique properties have sustainable practices. Guests will probably dine on food harvested from the organic, on-site garden and fall asleep in bungalows constructed of natural and recycled materials: polished concrete and bamboo, for example. Whether you opt for a tree house or a private villa, you’re likely to feel very connected with the mineral springs, rain forest, mountains, or pristine beachfront real estate.
