Directions to Hotel Punta Islita, Costa Rica

  • Punta Islita Beach

Hotel Punta Islita is located along the sunny Nicoya Peninsula in Costa Rica’s Guanacaste Province. Regarded by author (and favorite TED Speaker) Dan Buettner as a Blue Zone, Nicoya is one of the five regions in the world where healthy longevity is most common.

Hotel Punta Islita may be accessed from both Liberia International and San Jose International airports. Local 40 minute flights service the regional Islita Airstrip, including private charters. For those who prefer to drive, Hotel Punta Islita can be reached through a good road network connecting with Costa Rica’s main cities. Land transportation takes about two hours from Liberia and about three and half hours from San José.  Please note that driving entails about an 8 mile gravel portion, an SUV vehicle is strongly recommended.

IMPORTANT:  Given our relatively secluded location, we discourage late evening arrivals.  We also kindly ask you to provide us with your arrival details as soon as possible.  Our Reservations Department will glaldy help you coordinate suitable transportation and/or updated driving directions:  reserve@grupoislita.com
