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. 

Glamping Tent King Bedding

Tent Suite (One King or Two Double Beds) and Premium Suite (King Bed)

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. Our six Premium View Tents put the spotlight on the Gulf of Nicoya with dazzling views.

 It's magical!



This is heaven.  With angels and all stuff. First stay was with family,  which they enjoyed a lot. After our brief stay,  we quickly moved schedules and turned back for a second stay this time as couple,  the second time the hotel prepared a sweet greet for our celebration, we managed for a superior room and the hotel arranged for a fantastic sea view.  Bioluminiscence tour was very interesting. Food was always great. Staff went way and beyond the extra effort to make us feel welcome. As for the place,  you really have to go and see for yourself.  It's magical. Never ever change.  You make  paradise, heavenly. Looking forward to be back.

Han sido días mágicos!

Nuestros días en Isla Chiquita fueron todo lo que necesitábamos para conectar con la mágica naturaleza de Costa Rica, el relax y el confort que estábamos buscando. Las tiendas son increíbles, cómodas y sumergidas en la selva. La comida es exquisita y con un completo menú vegetariano. El staff siempre disponible para ayudarnos, aconsejarnos, muy servicial y simpático.
Han sido días mágicos, la experiencia la repetiríamos mil veces más!
Muchas gracias!

Absolument incroyable!

Absolument incroyable! Tout était parfait, les activités, la gentillesse du personnel, la beauté du lieu, la restauration, les familles de singes dans les arbres, les croisières, les massages.. j’y retourne dès que je peux.

You feel like you were on a secluded island!

I have traveled all over the world and lived all over the world. The ambience cannot be beat. You take a boat to a secluded little island. You arrive on a boat dock that is glittering like diamonds. The people that work there are fabulous. They speak excellent English. They are delighted to help. It is so clean and romantic. Everything you could hope for in an evening out and then more. We had the steak, the lobster, the snapper and lots of drinks with wine. It’s absolutely delightful. The service and food around this world.

Una experiencia única estar en una isla!

El mar es muy calmo, un fenómeno curioso casi no se percibe oleaje, el hotel es muy lindo y el personal es muy amable, te prestan kayaks, tablas para poder disfrutar del agua traquila del mar y el restaurante está contiguo a la playa y para llegar al lugar es bastante cerca.

Formidable séjours en famille, 10/10

L ´accueil,  le personnel  est très sympa , les produits à disposition dans les chambres sont magique. Les tentes sont très bien aménagées et très propres. C ´est très dépaysant , d’ être réveillé par le bruits des singes. Je recommande vivant

Overall highly recommended place

We stayed 2 nights in the master sunset suite at the top of the island. Views are breathtaking! And the room itself is nicely decorated and quite spacious. It was wonderful to sleep listening to the animals in the jungle. We had the feeling we were camping but in a 4 stars tent! We did not get any bugs or mosquitos in the room which was a nice surprise. We expected some! We had a wonderful time.
