Punta Islita is an eco-lux beach resort on the Pacific Coast of Costa Rica’s Nicoya Peninsula. When it opened in 1994, Hotel Punta Islita was one of Costa Rica’s first upscale eco-hotels. Designed by Ronald Zurcher, Punta Islita was created for intrepid visitors–those who happily exchanged ease of access for solitude and nature.
As part of its commitment to the environment, Punta Islita supports an array of local environmental and community initiatives.
LANDED arranges charter flights to the nearby airfield, or private land transfers from destinations throughout the Nicoya Peninsula and Guanacaste regions. Many guests chose to arrive by land from the international airport in Liberia, approximately 48 miles to the northwest.
