Welcome to Isla Chiquita Glamping Hotel

Enjoy our Glamping Experience in Costa Rica

Rejuvenate your mind, body and spirit as you forge a meaningful connection to nature at Isla Chiquita Glamping Hotel. Perched on the tiny island of Isla Jesusita in Costa Rica's picturesque Gulf of Nicoya, our hotel is the first and only destination of its kind in the country.

Celebrate the island’s artisanal fishing heritage with a delicious seafood meal at Donde Tía Nora Restaurant, or sip a drink at Harry’s Bar & Restaurant as you survey the beauty that envelops you. Embark on an adventure by land or sea; bioluminescence expeditions, birdwatching, forest bathing hikes, snorkeling excursions and island hopping are among the engaging experiences we offer. Upon returning to the hotel, relax in our tropical lounging gardens or soothe tired muscles with a massage on our wellness deck.

What is "Glamping"?

"Glamping" (a combination of the words “glamour” and camping”) blends the adventure and eco-friendly appeal of a camping holiday with the comforts and amenities of a traditional hotel. Isla Chiquita elevates the glamping experience with premium tent accommodations featuring plush bedding, organic bath products and lounging decks with gorgeous ocean or tropical forest views.

Environmental sustainability is of the utmost importance to all of us at Isla Chiquita Glamping Hotel. We’re committed to protecting and preserving the beauty of our surroundings, with a host of green-friendly initiatives and programs.

If it were possible to give 6 stars, then I would. Absolutely incredible. From the moment we arrived by private taxi-boat and were greeted with cold towels and welcome drinks, the experience has been beyond our wildest expectations.

The rooms are extremely comfortable, and we had a fantastic view out to sea. Having a drink, sitting in the plunge pool, looking out across the jungle to the sea is possibly one of the highlights of our trip. And then monkeys arrived just outside our tent to give us a close-up view of these amazing creatures. The food was great, the service attentive, and the staff were incredibly friendly. A truly amazing location and a fabulous experience.

Hôtel vraiment exceptionnel. Situé sur une petite île paradisiaque, on y accède par un bateau de l'hôtel. Un service excellent, des vues à couper le souffle, un super restaurant, beaucoup d'animaux, et énormément d'activités à faire dans les environs (nous avons fait une sortie en bateau avec Bahia Rica... à vivement conseiller), plage. Pour nous, c'est l'une des meilleures étapes de notre voyage au Costa Rica... nous avons séjourné dans d'autres hôtels exceptionnels en termes de qualité et de service, mais celui-ci a un réel avantage... à recommander surtout pour les familles ! Tout est réuni pour passer des vacances paradisiaques !!

We loved everything about La Isla Chiquita: the tents are comfortable and well arranged, the deck outside the tent is great for chilling and doing yoga, and the island is walkable and beautiful. We enjoyed the offered activities (kayaking, the bioluminescence experience, the spa...), and the food, and the drinks from the restaurant are delicious. The beach is small but lovely, and the staff is friendly and very helpful. The access to the island is easy and not too pricey. We highly recommend it!

We stayed in the Master Suite of this wonderful island hotel for three days. The hotel calls itself a Glamping Resort for 'Glamorous Camping' since, for environmental reasons, they could only build something that could be dismantled. But don't be mistaken, there's more glamour than camping there. The lodging is very comfortable. They have an excellent cook, and the staff is empathetic. But the most important thing is elsewhere: The proximity to nature, fauna, pristine beaches, and unspoiled scenery is unique.

I stayed at Isla Chiquita for a week, solo, just to fish from a kayak, relax, and do very little. The place looked fantastic online, with great reviews, beautiful pictures, and I went in with high expectations.Firstly, "glamping" is a bit misleading. The tents are about 400 square feet with a full bathroom and pretty much every amenity you'd find in a hotel room. The housekeeping is impeccable. The space between tents is strategically maintained to break the line of sight, providing a surprising amount of privacy. The staff is incredibly friendly. And the food! The oysters on the menu are literally from the oyster farm across the bay. The mahi-mahi isn't just the "catch of the day;" it's literally caught that day. And if you're looking for an even more authentic experience, if you catch a fish, they'll turn it into your dinner, with fried plantains, salad, and all the rest for $10.

Isla Chiquita Glamping exceeded our expectations in every way. The staff were incredibly sweet and attentive, making us feel right at home from the moment we arrived. The well-maintained garden provided a stunning backdrop for our stay, and the entire property had excellent WiFi coverage, which was a pleasant surprise for a remote location.

The food was simply outstanding, with fresh-caught fish and locally sourced vegetables prepared to perfection, and the prices were more than fair. The calm and beautiful waters around the island were perfect for kayaking, and the fact that they provided free access to kayaks and sunboards with vests was a huge bonus. Our kids absolutely loved every moment of our stay, and we can't wait to return to Isla Chiquita Glamping. It truly is a hidden gem for a family getaway!
