Pleasant Punta Islita

Punta Islita is a blend of rusticness with a touch of pampering. The facilities are simple, yet charming. What stands out at Punta Islita is the warm hospitality; every staff member was friendly and helpful, yet never too 'over the top'. If I could change one thing--I wished for a pool large enough to swim in. While the resort has two lovely pools, both were 'plunge' pools and even though Punta Islita is an at the ocean resort, having a swimming pool for both children to play in and adults to swim laps in was expected at a resort in Costa Rica.

Hotel Punta Islita is situated on the Nicoya Peninsula in Guanacaste, Costa Rica. This emerald-green landscape is home to mountains, beautiful beaches, and intimate coves. Getting to Punta Islita is best accomplished by taking a small carrier or private charter from the Liberia International Airport to the Islita Airstrip (a short flight of about 35 minutes). From there, a shuttle will take you the remaining 10-minute drive to the hotel (shuttle costs $10 each way).
