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.

Un personnel au top dans un site de rêve

Une expérience de glamping (mix entre glamour et camping) niveau haut de gamme ! Le site est au milieu de la nature et on peut voir des singes hurleurs, des iguanes, des serpents, même un tatou ! se promener librement. C'est magique. Deux incontournables selon moi : la balade en kayak pour observer le plancton bioluminescent et la visite du parc national de Curu. Les guides nous permettent d'apprendre une foule de choses. Un grand merci et bravo à Daniela, Rafa, Nelson et Jeffrey ! Et tous les autres !

Fabulous island hideaway!



Isla Chiquita is a stunning glamping resort on its own island just off the Nicoya peninsula. We stayed in the master suite at the top of the resort and had an absolutely magical stay. From the outstanding room amenities to the friendly and helpful staff, we made magical memories with our children on this trip. Food was fresh and delicious, we loved using the free kayaks and paddle boards and the evening bio-luminescence tour was a must. Highly recommend!
