Hotel Nantipa

In Santa Teresa, this boutique property sits within Costa Rica’s Blue Zone, a designation applied to areas of the world where residents tend to live longer, healthier lives. The property offers a mix of bungalows, suites and villas, and offers a special Blue Zone Experience, in which you can fully immerse yourself in the array of practices often credited for Blue Zones’ impact on their residents.


Tabacón Thermal Resort & Spa

Set on a rain forest reserve, this resort really lets you disconnect and get away. The resort boasts a large network of thermal hot springs and was the first hotel in the country to achieve an “elite” certification in sustainable tourism. Sustainability efforts include reforestation, water management, environmental species tagging and more.
