Oceanside Resort with Golf Course and Restaurants Serving Local Cuisine

Costa Rica’s Nicoya Peninsula is considered a "Blue Zone," a place whose residents tend to live measurably longer—many past the age of 100. As noted by Dan Buettner, the writer and founder of BlueZones.com, the people in these zones tend to have an active lifestyle, sleep an average of eight hours per day, and have lower levels of stress. The Nicoya Peninsula is one of only a handful of Blue Zones in the world, and Punta Islita Hotel is located on a secluded beach on the Pacific side of the peninsula. Travel + Leisure named the Punta Islita one of the Best 100 Hotels in the World in 2008.

Punta Islita is surrounded by tropical cloud forest, which is characterized by a persistent fog. On a forest canopy tour, you can explore the nearby rainforest from a steel-cable zipline; during your stay, you'll also be able to try your hand at surfing in a group lesson off the coast.

Located within the property’s tropical gardens, Casa Spa features treatments that draw from the traditions of the Costa Rican healing arts and the practices of local herbalists. You can also sample the area's vibrant cuisine at two onsite restaurants, where chefs craft dishes using fresh, locally sourced ingredients. A 50-foot thatched-palm ceiling covers the outdoor patio area at 1492 Restaurant, which enjoys a front-row view of the water.

The deluxe rooms have nice views of the water as well. Each room opens up to a private terrace area, where you can kick back in a hammock.

Nicoya Peninsula, Costa Rica: Remote Beaches and Cloud Rainforests

The Nicoya Peninsula is covered in jungle foliage and juts out into the Pacific Ocean; such geography makes it a center for activities such as deep-sea fishing, surfing, horseback riding, or ziplining through tropical forests.

You can get a nice introduction to local culture at the Islita Art Museum, which displays a collection of work from local and established national artists. The artists featured here have set about transforming the small community of Islita into a living museum of murals, installations, and sculptures. The museum is one of the Punta Islita’s many initiatives geared toward conservation and sustainability; click here to read about all of their projects.
