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.

Isla Chiquita Glamping es uno de esos hospedajes únicos de los que nunca te querrías ir. Desde que llegas, el trato del personal es maravilloso; siempre están atentos a todo lo que necesitemos. Cada espacio del lugar es simplemente increíble. El restaurante es delicioso y las actividades que ofrecen son geniales. Realizamos el tour de bioluminiscencia, y fue mágico en medio de la noche. También hicimos kayak y senderismo. ¡Fue extraordinario!

Nos alojamos en la Premium Glamping Suite, que se encuentra en la montaña rodeada de naturaleza. Tiene una de las mejores vistas, cuenta con todas las comodidades y equipamiento necesarios. Además, tiene un delicioso jacuzzi.

Amazing stay with teenagers

Our family of four (two teenage boys) had an awesome two night stay at Island Chiquita! The accommodations are a perfect glamping experience. Excellent food, very well maintained grounds. We had a blast on the Artisian Fishing experience, as well as the bioillumenescence tour. The staff was really friendly and we felt very safe the entire time. We stayed in cabin ten and had an awesome view of the sunset and a group of howler monkeys were hanging around in the trees around our cabin when we arrived!

Vue accueil gentillesse farniente confort et un petit brin d ´aventure avec les singes le soir qui viennent dire bonsoir.

Incroyable j’avais réservé sur internet sans me douter et ça été un surprise extraordinaire le lieu est magique mais les chambres sont très agréables avec une vue à couper le souffle et le personnel est compétant toujours à l’écoute et prêt à rendre service les activités bioluminescence et snorkeling sont biens et les guides très sympas.
Je remercie le batelier qui nous a traversé pour notre départ à 4h30 du matin avec toujours le sourire des Codtaricains.
Merci de ce séjour.

Amazing stay with fantastic staff

This resort was amazing for relaxing while still allowing to see everything Costa Rica has to offer. I expected the lack of AC to be an issue, but it was not as we kept cool in the evening with fans and windows. Food was delicious, I recommend the lobster or whatever is freshly caught (ask for daily specials). For breakfast the avocado toast was the best I’ve ever had. I recommend island kayaking, Tortuga Island, sunset cruise and the Curu preserve excursions.
