Hotel Nantipa - Luxury Hotel in Santa Teresa de Cobano

‘Pura Vida’ in Santa Teresa surfer heaven

Step into a Costa Rican paradise. Nantipa is a cloud-nine boutique retreat that redefines barefoot luxury. Every element is inspired by the ocean and sky – right down to its name, which means ‘blue’ in the native Nicoya tribal language. From dawn to dusk you’ll have the sand between your toes and the sound of crashing waves in your ears.

Whether you’re a novice or seasoned surfer, the conditions here are point break perfect. Of course, you could just swing gently in a hammock in your bungalow or beside the pool. The bartenders here will happily mix the kind of cocktail you can only have in Costa Rica, using tropical island spirits and fruits. Dinner will bring you back down to the beach, where you’ll feast on fresh Costa Rican specialities as the sun melts into the horizon.

With the wildlife-rich jungle behind you and the ocean in front, you’ll be surrounded by natural beauty at Nantipa. Beach hop your way along the Nicoya Peninsula, on foot, surfboard or even on horseback. Visit the mighty Montezuma Waterfall. Swap sandals for hiking boots to trek Cabo Blanco National Park and visit Curu WildlifeReserve. Or take a boat and escape to the talcum powder sands of Tortuga Island. The concierges at Nantipa will happily recommend and arrange all sorts of unforgettable adventures.
