Hotel at a Glance: Latitude 10 Resort
After the sun sets on the Pacific Ocean, wooden torches blaze at Latitude 10 Resort, lighting paths that lead to casitas hidden amid tangled vines and thick palm fronds. If you feel like you’re on a deserted island, you’ve got the right idea. The resort—once a private residence—has been designed to embrace the tropical setting. Guests can sip tropical drinks through natural bamboo straws and spot monkeys and geckos roaming the eco-friendly property, which has garnered praise from Travel + Leisure and Condé Nast Traveler.

Puntarenas, Costa Rica: Scarlet Macaws and Surfing in Popular Ecotourism Getaway
Located along the Pacific coastline, Puntarenas is Costa Rica’s largest province, extending more than 500 miles from the Panama-Costa Rica border up to the Gulf of Nicoya. In Puntarenas, you’re never far from beaches, national parks, and nature reserves, making the area a popular ecotourism spot. The beachside town of Jacó attracts surfers from all over the globe with consistently big waves and good breaks. Just a few miles inland, Carara National Park, an 11,600-acre nature reserve, is home to crocodiles, two-toed sloths, and hundreds of scarlet macaws—a rare sight in most parts of the country.
About 60 miles northeast of Jacó lies the Costa Rican capital of San José, a bustling cultural hub filled with open-air artisan markets and street vendors selling tamales and pupusas (stuffed flatbread). Wandering the streets here you’ll see a confluence of architecture styles—part Spanish, part Moorish—and some of the older neighborhoods still have homes made out of wood and adobe.
