Discover what makes Costa Rica a must-see destination

Situated in Guanacaste Province, on Costa Rica's Nicoya Peninsula, Punta Islita offers a wonderfully serene escape with the perfect combination of leisure, peaceful ambiance, and adventure. A winding, cliff-side road presents incredibly picturesque vistas as one drives into the village. Then, the Punta Islita Beach sits in a small protective cove less than a mile long. It directly connects to another beach called Corozalito, and while still considered a part of Punta Islita, Playa Corozalito is slightly larger in size. It contains a mangrove swamp where visitors are likely spot nesting sea turtles.

Visitors should explore the fabulous trails that lead to rich vegetation amid the hills. Along these trails one can discover local wildlife, including Howler Monkeys and an abundance of bird species. Also in the area, visitors can continue their exploration with a number of tours: Horseback riding, kayaking, jet skiing, and even a lively fishing excursion with experienced local fisherman.
