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.

¡Amazing place, the tends are great and very comfortable!
The food at the restaurant is the best we have tried in Costa Rica.  

Santiago Iacobelli, April 2024

We enjoyed the relaxed environment with few people on the island. The service was exceptional, catering to our every need. We took the bioluminescent tour, which didn't disappoint. Definitely take advantage of this memorable experience. The restaurant overlooks the ocean and boasts aesthetic beauty. We received great service, and the food was delicious.

We indulged in ceviche, tuna, coconut shrimp, a chicken sandwich, a brownie dessert, and breakfast. The tents were next-level, offering a complete luxury experience akin to staying at a resort. As we woke up, a family of monkeys crossed our tent's deck area, creating a special moment we'll cherish forever. This is a one-of-a-kind experience you shouldn't miss!

The Smith's, April 2024

This place is as close to paradise as I can imagine! Not only is the ‘tent’ spacious and comfortable. The view from the deck filled my heart every time I looked! The layout of the relaxation area with hammocks and sunbeds worked really well too, all made even better by the stunning sunsets. The staff were such lovely people, cheerful and attentive. 

Our main reason for choosing the destination was for the bioluminescence, which was an incredible experience, but my husband and son also went fishing from the island. The chef prepared their catch, and the staff joined in celebrating their success!
An amazing experience we will not forget

Un petit paradis…
Accueillis par un cocktail après une courte traversée en bateau taxi, nous avons passé deux jours très agréables dans ce glamping. L’endroit est vraiment accueillant, les tentes confortables, le personnel très serviable. Un petit bémol pour le repas du deuxième soir, avec un vivaneau bien trop cuit, dommage. Les prix sont plutôt élevés et les alternatives difficiles d’accès puisqu’on est sur une île.

La seconde nuit, nous avons peu dormi, tant les animaux faisaient la fiesta…

Reste que le cadre est vraiment magnifique, et nous y serions bien restés un peu plus, si la route ne nous appelait!
