Costa Rica is a country that boast of it’s conservation efforts. In working in the ecotourism industry we see over 25% of Costa Rica has protected land but we all know it is what goes on to the land that is not protected that is just as important. Becoming a tourist hotspot Costa Rica seems to be split between the Guanacaste Mega-Resorts and very different type eco-friendly eco-lodges. For many people the Mega-Resorts are just too much and for others the Eco-lodges although some very luxurious are unfortunately a little too much jungle for their taste.
The Difference you will Find…
There are a chain of hotels in Costa Rica that have formed a group called the Small Distinctive Luxury Hotels of Costa Rica and it is a perfect blend of luxury, on a small scale, and at the same time very eco-friendly. Working in private family vacations for the last 11 years the I have seen this group of hotels grow as the idea of being small with excellent service and the utmost luxury seems to be a trend that goes best with Costa Rica. All of the nine hotels included in the Small Distinctive Hotels of Costa Rica are amazing in their own distinct self. You can find them from being beachfront to hidden in the mountains, cloudforest, or in the center of the capital city of San Jose.
