Rejuvenate your mind, body and spirit as you forge a connection with nature at Isla Chiquita Glamping Hotel, which is perched on the tiny island of Isla Jesusita in Costa Rica's picturesque Gulf of Nicoya, and is the first and only destination of its kind in the country! When you go glamping, you blend the adventure and eco-friendly appeal of a camping holiday with the comforts and amenities of a traditional hotel. Speaking of adventure, you'll choose between a bioluminescence expedition and island hopping, two exceptional ways to explore Costa Rica's lush natural environment.

Your trip begins with a one-night stay in San Jose at Hotel Grano de Oro, a member of Small Distinctive Hotels of Costa Rica. Located on a shady street just off Paseo Colón, San Jose's main thoroughfare, Hotel Grano de Oro is a true oasis, a sanctuary in the heart of a bustling city. Converted from a Tropical Victorian mansion, the hotel maintains the warmth and comfort of a private home. The hotel's charming atrium terrace and corridors have sparkling fountains and lush tropical planting, and the rooftop deck offers soothing jacuzzis and a spot for secluded sunbathing.

The adventure really kicks off with a 40-minute ride sailing on a yacht across the blue waters of the Pacific Ocean, landing at Isla Chiquita Glamping Hotel, just off the coast of Costa Rica. 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. Celebrate the island's artisanal fishing heritage with delicious seafood at Donde Tía Nora Restaurant, or sip a drink at Harry's Bar.

There is no better way to explore the wonders of the island surroundings than participating in one of the enthralling eco-adventures! Isla Chiquita Glamping Hotel offers a diverse selection of experiences ? from self-guided kayak tours and SUP boarding to forest-bathing hikes, bird watching, snorkeling and a visit to one of the biological reserves for which Costa Rica is known. You have a choice of a spectacular bioluminescence experience, or an island hopping tour! Produced by high concentrations of light-emitting plankton, bioluminescent algae imbues the waters with a starry night effect. This one-of-a-kind evening boating adventure will seek this show in the area surrounding Isla Chiquita. Or you can opt for island hopping, which is the perfect solution for beach enthusiasts! Board an open boat and voyage through the Gulf of Nicoya in search of your favorite sun and sand spot to enjoy swimming, snorkeling or simply lying back and letting the coastal breeze tease your hair. Upon your return to Isla Chiquita Glamping Hotel, relax in the tropical lounging gardens or soothe tired muscles with a massage on the wellness deck.

After another yacht ride back to the port of Puntarenas, you'll spend your final night in San Jose at the Hotel Grano de Oro before returning home.
