Hotels in Puntarenas

Seeking a mountain to call your own? Set on a 250-acre preserve, this hilltop eco-lodge draws an A-list clientele (Anderson Cooper, Sheryl Crow, and Al Gore, to name a few) who come for the privacy: check in to one of two new “Treehauses,” which are set back from the main building.

Unless you have a live-in chef, views of dolphins from your bedroom, and 750 acres of rainforest at your doorstep, this five-bedroom Pacific coast villa is better than a home-away-from-home.
