Pacific coast: Punta Islita

Punta Islita

Punta Islita is a charming and remote hideaway dramatically set on a hilltop surrounded by lush tropical scenery and overlooking the Pacific Ocean. It is a small and intimate resort of just 30 palm-thatched rooms, each boasting spectacular views over the ocean from a private terrace. Some rooms also have a private outdoor Jacuzzi or plunge pool.

There is a secluded, crescent-shaped private beach just a ten-minute walk or short shuttle journey away, and a bar with staff on hand to serve refreshments. You could simply spend the day unwinding on the shore or beside the pool, but for the more energetic there are also plenty of activities available in the surrounding rainforest. These include horse riding, mountain-biking, trekking and off-roading in all terrain vehicles, as well as sport fishing and both offshore and deep sea excursions. Complimentary bicycles are available to guests for leisurely exploration.

For a romantic end to an idyllic day at Punta Islita, enjoy a candlelit dinner at the excellent open-air restaurant or at a private table prepared for you on the beach.
