Not only does Vista las Islas offer a spectacular view of Tortuga Island but also fun boat tours to the island itself. Costa Rica’s most beautiful exotic island impresses with a magnificent white-sandy beach lined with tall swaying coconut palms. Switching from sunglasses to a snorkeling mask you can also discover the underwater world: The waters around Tortuga are surrounded by volcanic rock reef which is home to many colorful fish.
Nestled in the tropical mountainside, and above 100 meter sea level, Vista Las Islas Eco Boutique Hotel – Reserva Natural is surrounded by lush tropical greenery and offers a unique view of the Gulf of Nicoya and its picturesque islands.
Nowhere else in Costa Rica you will find a view nearly comparable with our stunning prospect. Our view is the best unique selling point a hotel can have.
