Authentic Costa Rica Culture
Hotel Punta Islita offers a unique cultural immersion setting, based on a close relationship with neighboring communities. The creation of the Islita Art Museum and special outreach initiatives allow travelers to experience authentic Costa Rica.
The Islita Art Museum and the community art associations vividly reflect the region’s intense character and passion for color and form. These experiences pair you with local groups to create a signature piece and unique memento of your visit. Embroidered collages, delicate mobiles, rustic sand candles, handmade paper, and jewelry are some of the projects that will bring out and delight your inner artist.
These engaging cultural experiences are part of the Authentic Costa Rica Program*
The region’s seashells, pebbles, and unique seeds are perfect to create a beautiful keychain and a one-of-a-kind memento of your stay.
Create beautiful sand-candle pieces to take home and enjoy. Includes a fun pick-up soccer game while the candles cool off.
Give life to your own canvas, inspired by Hotel Punta Islita's singular beach. The small outcropping at the far end creates an iconic figure that will stay in your memories.
