How To Get To The Island
Isla Chiquita Glamping Hotel is set in Isla Jesusita, a tiny island in Costa Rica’s Gulf of Nicoya. On-site arrival facilities include a floating dock that allows for dry landings by yacht or boat. We also have a clearing that may be used as a heliport.
Isla Chiquita offers courtesy parking at Punta Cuchillos, our mainland facilities located approximately two miles from Paquera, Puntarenas. Our own water taxi provides guests with complimentary round-trip transfers from either Punta Cuchillos or the Paquera Ferry arrival platform (10-minute boat ride).
