Nicoya Peninsula
Santa Teresa, Costa Rica
TEL: 506-2640-0232

Named for the frangipani flower, with rock waterfalls and tropical landscapes, Costa Rica’s Florblanca is an ideal Nicoya Peninsula getaway for beachgoers in search of solitude paired with the occasional fitness class or surfing excursion. On seven acres along the talcum beaches of Santa Teresa and Malpais, 11 pink stucco villas have three-walled living rooms that open to the Pacific Ocean, with low-slung hammocks on every shaded patio. Suites are painted in neutral hues, accented by natural fabrics and local hardwoods, and feature alfresco rain showers, while Pan Pacific touches are found throughout the property (Balinese carvings in the rooms, Buddhas perched around the property, a Japanese-inspired temple of a spa). After a day on the beach or at the spa (where daily yoga and Pilates classes are on offer), join the honeymooners and surfers for fruity cocktails at the Nectar restaurant and bar, overlooking the pool, while howler monkeys call in the distance. For a quiet night on your own, reserve the palapa over the pool for a private meal of freshly caught Pacific mahimahi.

Room to Book:

The two-story Honeymoon House is ideal for privacy seekers who want to unwind in an oceanfront villa with a personal Jacuzzi and sunset views over the open Pacific.

Insider Tip:

Those who arrive in the green season, from May to November, can avoid the muddy road to the hotel by flying from San Jose into the nearby Tambor airport. The hotel will arrange a transfer to the property, a 45-minute drive southwest; the SUV is stocked with cold drinks and beer.
