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.

El mejor Glamping de Costa Rica

Truly luxurious glamping in one of the most beautiful settings in the world!

The staff was the nicest and most accommodating we’ve met in Costa Rica, which is saying a lot because most people in CR are extremely friendly! The views were breathtaking, the glamping tents were luxury tents with everything you needed to be comfortable in a glamping environment. The bioluminescence tour was amazing and the complimentary kayaks, paddle boats and paddle boards provided hours of entertainment for our family. I would have stayed longer had we known how exquisite and unique our stay would be. It was my favorite stay in Costa Rica!

Un Paraíso cerca de la Ciudad

Estábamos buscando un lindo lugar donde pasar el fin de semana sin ir muy lejos de la Ciudad. Isla Chiquita resultó ser el lugar ideal. Manejamos hasta Puntarenas donde dejamos nuestro vehículo, de allí tomamos el Ferry hacia Paquera donde nos esperaba un bote para llevarnos a la Isla. El hotel es simplemente increible, las habitaciones tipo glamping son muy cómodas y están integradas en la naturaleza, la decoración es muy bonita. La comida en el hotel es increíble, algo que deben probar. Nosotros aprovechamos y relizamos el tour de Bioluminiscencia, muy recomendado.

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 !

Glamping at its finest!

 

 

What a faaaaaabulous getaway! We've done a lot of glamping and Isla Chiquita does it so well. One the location is absolutely incredible--surrounded by the water, islets, and mountains and to feel like you have it all to yourself is priceless. The quality of the accommodations was top-notch and soooo chic.
Plus, they do a great job with activities. We kayaked around the island, went on the sunset boat ride, and the bioluminescence night tour. To see such vibrant bioluminescence alone is worth it. This was all complemented by great food (we're vegan and they had so many options for us!) in a beautiful setting. We can't recommend this place enough!
