As you approach Isla Chiquita from the water, it’s hard not to be struck by the lusciousness of the foliage that covers this tiny island. Once you’ve arrived and been shown to your high-quality glamping tent nestled amidst the leaves and looking out to the Gulf of Nicoya, you’ll soon feel immersed in the nature that surrounds you.
Children and adults alike will relish the chance to explore the island’s lush interior and perhaps spot some indigenous species. There’s ample opportunity to get out on the water too, with paddleboards, kayaks and boat trips on offer. The resort also offers guided ‘eco adventures’ and serves delicious fresh food at Tía Nora, a restaurant and bar set right on the gulf.
Accommodation is more than comfortable, with each tent featuring a king-size bed and daybed, so it can sleep up to three people. Full bathrooms with double sinks, ceiling fans and electric lights mean that modern comforts won’t be missed. Meanwhile, the spacious decking areas outside each tent allow you to take in views through the trees and out to sea at any time of the day.
