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.

Don't miss this!
Glamping glamour. My favorite place in Costa Rica. King size beds, lovely shower with lots of hot water. Top notch service in every respect. Food was very good, and the view and location are absolutely the best. I spent part of one afternoon photographing the howler monkeys that were eating the fruits and leaves on the tree near my patio. I snapped pictures until my arms hurt!
Be sure to partake in the excursions offered, as well as swimming, snokeling, kayaking.
Breakfast is served outdoors, in the shade of lovely trees next to the beach. Dinner is indoors, on the patio. Nice menu, lovely selection.
I'll be back for a third visit soon.
El paraiso le queda corto!
Isla Chiquita es toda una experiencia desde el segundo que llegas. Todo su personal con la mejor disposición y la mejor actitud. Ademas de tener espacios increíbles para desconectarnos de cualquier preocupación y disfrutar de su experiencia. La comida increíble, soy vegetariana y sus opciones son deliciosas, se notan que han tomado el tiempo de pensar y planear deliciosos platillos.
Siempre recomendare a Isla Chiquita y lo llevare en mi corazón como un recuerdo inolvidable.2023-01-11
Spot idyllique et incontournable
Un lieu enchanteur, tout simplement magique. Un écrin de verdure, un instant coupé du monde, une expérience inoubliable. Tout est pensé, tout est parfait, et le personnel irréprochable.
Nous pourrions vous dresser la liste de tous les superlatifs de la langue française pour vous dire à quel point cette île est paradisiaque, mais le plus simple est de vous conseiller de ne rater le détour sous aucun prétexte. Nous y retournerons, c'est sûr, mais cette fois-ci pour plusieurs nuits.2023-01-24
Fun Luxury Stay
We stayed three nights. The “tents” are well designed with canvas and screen exteriors and double glass doors leading to a large deck in front. From the tent we saw howler monkeys daily and has an elevated view of the water. We had a couples massage which may never be matched. The spa is an open sided hut perched on a bluff above the water. The wind, ocean sound and chimes provide a sublime backdrop to a quality massage. 5 star. We did the artisan fishing activity. Great fun. The food is good quality and well prepared. All staff is excellent and eager to assist.2023-02-14

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.2023-02-21
