The Setting

Perched above the rustic Guanacaste coastline, offering some of the most picturesque views in Costa Rica, sits Hotel Punta Islita. Vibrant local culture and rich landscape become one at this Kind Hotel fully committed to a holistic sustainability model that supports an array of local and community initiatives.

For starters, Hotel Punta Islita has created the Islita Art Museum - an innovative cultural program that pairs established Costa Rican artists with local counterparts, literally transforming nearby Islita village into a living museum of mosaics and sculptures (you’ll find local pieces in the hotel, too). They’ve constructed an eco-architecturally designed school and creative center to promote educational opportunities and critical thinking to local children and teenagers.
