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.

For my daughter and me, it was one of the best stays in a hotel we have ever had. Everything was perfect. We had the master suite. Terrific location! Thanks again to the entire staff. Very helpful, very, very nice. Muchas gracias.

¡Agradable experiencia!

La experiencia del alojamiento es agradable porque combina lo “cozy” de una tienda de campaña con la comodidad de que está montada sobre un deck y con un servicio sanitario y ducha bien acondicionados.
El mobiliario cómodo e impecable, el personal es muy amable y servicial, la comida sabrosa. También lo hace especial el que sea en una isla.

Atención increíble y experiencia única

Pasamos unos días increíbles en Isla Chiquita, la atención de todos sus colaboradores fue IMPECABLE. Además, amé el tour de Bioluminiscencia, fue épico y recomiendo que vivan esto al menos una vez en la vida (el hotel tiene la mejor ubicación para disfrutar de esta actividad, así que 100% recomendado).

The Ideal Relaxing Getaway!

My wife and I had a wonderful, relaxing vacation on Isla Chiquita. The staff, especially Daniela, was exceptional. Daniela's professionalism, friendliness, and attentiveness made our stay truly special. She went above and beyond to ensure our comfort and resolve any issues promptly. Her dedication is a testament to the heart of this place. We'd gladly return and recommend it to others. The food, particularly the seafood, was outstanding, and the restaurant staff excelled in hospitality. Whether enjoying the tent, deck, or pool, we basked in the serene surroundings. It was the perfect escape.

I have traveled all over the world and lived all over the world. The ambiance cannot be beaten. You take a boat to a secluded little island. You arrive at a boat dock that is glittering like diamonds. The people who work there are fabulous. They speak excellent English and are delighted to help. It is so clean and romantic, everything you could hope for in an evening out and more. We had steak, lobster, snapper, and lots of drinks with wine. We even had a delightful dessert. The food melted in your mouth, it was delicious. You feel like you are on a secluded island. The situation and ambiance could not be better. It's absolutely delightful, the service and food are out of this world.

He visitado 2 veces Isla Chiquita, han sido experiencias únicas. Las estrellas de un hotel, a mi criterio, se ganan con la atención, así que para mí, tienes más de 5. Me hicieron sentir como en casa y estaban dispuestos a que disfrutáramos al máximo, y lo lograron. Recibimos un excelente trato desde que reservamos hasta el último momento. Excelencia desde los muchachos del bote, recepción, tours, restaurante, personal de apoyo, todos y cada una de las personas que nos atendieron. Mis felicitaciones y agradecimiento. Sus instalaciones son de lujo y como me encanta la naturaleza, disfruté mucho de mi pasatiempo, la fotografía. En resumen, recomendado 100%.

This place is a hidden gem. Everything about our stay was 5-star! The grounds are beautiful, the staff is amazing, and the tents are wonderful. The tents have great airflow, bug spray, and toiletries. The view is worth 10 stars!!! The food and drinks are show-stopping. I literally cannot say enough good things about this place. We will definitely be coming back and telling all of our friends.
