Costa Rica’s top 10 hotel views

August 2, 2013

Here at The Tico Times, we know Costa Rican hotels, because we’ve stayed just about everywhere. From the finest luxury hotels and adorable boutique inns to the very worst, cockroach-ridden hostels, we’ve been there. Though all very different, the following hotels have one thing in common: mind-blowing views of Costa Rica’s beautiful landscape. 

Villas Alturas, Dominical

It’s called “High Views” for a reason. Poolside sunbathers at Villas Alturas get a full sweeping view of Dominical’s lush rain forest and lucky guests might even spot a breaching humpback whale out in the ocean.

With good timing, guests dining at Rancho Pacifico can gaze upon Uvita’s famous beach, shaped like a whale’s tail, which is visible at low tide.
