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.

Sin duda volveremos pronto!
Visitamos Isla Chiquita porque pensamos en darle a nuestros hijos una experiencia única en la naturaleza, además, que fuera muy seguro por la pandemia y realmente este hotel superó nuestras expectativas. Desde el inicio es una aventura, el traslado en bote, la isla, las tiendas, las actividades acuáticas, la piscina, la comida..todo es maravilloso. Nos encantó la experiencia de estar cerca de la naturaleza, relajarnos pero también tener algunas aventuras, ver monos, cangrejos, peces y vivir la experiencia única de la bioluminiscencia. El mar es como una piscina y los niños disfrutaron tanto allí, que querían quedarse hasta ver el atardecer (que también es espectacular). Lo que más hace especial este lugar es su personal, todos profesionales, son cálidos y atentos, siempre pendientes de que nuestra estadía fuera maravillosa.

Definitely an unforgettable experience!

I've been glamping a few times, but this was definitely one of the most luxurious glamping experiences I've ever had. The tents are spaced far enough apart and have enough trees/jungle between them that they feel very private and secluded. Spacious room, bed is very comfortable. The water pressure in the shower is great, and we never had to worry about running out of hot water. The included toiletries smelled SO good!! Definitely, definitely book the bioluminescence tour! It's totally worth it and one of the most unique experiences of my life. At the restaurant, be sure to get the fish, we had the mahi mahi and the local catch and both were amazing and cooked to perfection. For other activities, there's a little hike you can do for beautiful views of the water and we definitely enjoyed kayaking and paddle boarding.

Fantastic luxury glamping experience as a family

As a family with two kids, we love glamping and our stay at Isla Chiquita was in one word fantastic! The luxury safari tents, the beautiful surroundings and animals, the friendly staff, the amazing food, we loved the whole experience. Our family had so much fun spotting monkeys, kayaking around the island, enjoying the sunsets in the hammocks and playing in the pool. We can highly recommend his place for anyone who wants to stay on an island in Costa Rica in a unique setting. Glamping at its best!

Excelente lugar para relajarse y hacer diferentes actividades

Excelente lugar para relajarse y hacer diferentes actividades como kayak, paddle board, nadar, caminar por el sendero o simplemente sentarse a ver el atardecer, incluso quedarse en la tienda descansando puede ser una buena opción por la experiencia que te brindan. La atención que dan es increíble y el restaurante es muy bueno. Me encantó!
