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.
Tent Suite with One King or Two Double Beds
Perfect for families or groups, these tents offer either one king or two comfortable double beds, an en-suite bathroom, a mini refrigerator and a lounging deck with breathtaking ocean or forest views. Our King Tent Suites also include a day bed.
Master Sunset Suite
Set at the cusp of the island, this magnificent suite is our most luxurious. It features an unparalleled 360° ocean view and is furnished with a king bed, two day beds, a spacious en-suite bathroom, a Palapa lounging deck and a bubbling outdoor whirlpool.
The Best of Costa Rica
Seasonal, local seafood, creative cocktails and unmatched views: all of this and more are yours to relish at Donde Tía Nora Restaurant and Harry’s Bar & Restaurant, our signature dining and drink destinations.
Our thrilling experiences are designed to help you achieve mindful harmony with the world around you. Explore the bounty of the land or discover the wonders of the sea through our unique tours, excursions and adventures.
How to Reach Our Hotel

Perfect End to a Wonderful Trip
What a great find this was. We both loved our visit and were so glad we stayed here. The tents are incredible and the bed the best we had all holiday. It is a real oasis and the staff were just wonderful - so welcoming and helpful. Food and drinks were excellent, and it really added to the wonderful time we had in Costa Rica. A little touch of paradise.2020-03-18
Un concepto diferente
Sin duda, algo distinto a lo q había hecho hasta ahora. Un lugar increíble donde nos atendieron excelente desde q llegamos hasta q nos fuimos. Todos los detalles de un hotel 5 estrellas , pero a la vez con la vivencia y el espíritu del “camping”. Las carpas, súper confortables, la vista inmejorable, la comida deliciosa, la atención de diez.
Un plus: los paseos nocturnos para ver la bioluminiscencia. Imperdible!!!2020-03-01
WE WILL BE BACK! Absolutely LOVE this place! The food was the best we have ever had (try the octopus)! And I can’t say enough good things about the staff! Everyone was amazing! We fished with Christian and their chefs prepared our fresh catch of Jack fish! The beds were so comfortable, and the openness of the tents was just amazing! BOOK IT NOW you won’t be disappointed!2019-12-05
Isla Chiquita es EL lugar si quieren descansar...fuimos a celebrar el cumpleaños de mi esposo y disfrutamos un montón. Las habitaciones/carpas tienen todas las comodidades de un hotel con el twist “exótico” o diferente. Desde que nos recibieron en el ferry el servicio fue excelente. La comida es muy rica y a un precio acorde a la calidad... En resumen: 100% recomendado, si quiere disfrutar tiempo de calidad con su pareja. Se puede tanto descansar como disfrutar de un poco de aventura con kayak y paddle boarding. Para todos los ticos y extranjeros que visitan CR, definitivamente es una experiencia que se debe de vivir.2019-12-10
Unique Stay in Paradise
Incredible location a short boat ride from the ferry dock in Paquera. Met at the dock by hotel staff and taken to the island where we were greeted with cold towels and a lemonade. The place is awesome. There are kayaks and stand up paddle boards available for the guests. The food and drinks served on the island are excellent and the service throughout was top notch. The staff is incredibly attentive and gracious. The views from the islands are fantastic. Mind you, this is glamping so forget AC in your room, but I was surprised how well the fans worked at making things comfortable. Went with two teenagers and they loved it. Which is amazing because the experience wasn’t on their phone. That said, tell them not to panic, they have WiFi. Highly recommend this place.2019-12-04
