Paquera, Costa Rica (PressExposure) May 15, 2012 -- From its enviable perch on Costa Rica's scenic Gulf of Nicoya, Hotel Vista Las Islas Spa & Eco Reserve has created a uniquely luxurious, yet earthy oasis of relaxation. The elegant amenities, natural beauty, and surprisingly affordable rates make this intimate and exotic resort a preferred destination for visitors from around the world. But with their current getaway package, the charms of this Costa Rican hotel are more irresistible than ever.
Now through June 30, 2012, Hotel Vista Las Islas is offering a very special overnight stay for two in any of their standard bungalows. "Standard" is a bit of an understatement, though, considering these are private bungalows with a deck overlooking either the ocean or lush tropical greenery. Besides stunning views, the contemporary "tropical modern" style rooms feature king-size beds, oversized modern bathrooms and plenty of space to relax and unwind. The hotel's getaway package includes complimentary breakfast, free WIFI in the public areas, a snorkeling excursion off the idyllic Tortuga Island and a tour of the lush Reserva Curú wildlife reserve-all for $178, including taxes!
While some may be tempted to venture no further than the hotel's spectacular ocean-view pool, the boat trip to nearby Isla Tortuga (Turtle Island) is not to be missed. Located just 3km from the hotel, the waters surrounding this lush island are home to the best snorkeling on Costa Rica's Pacific coast. Besides a rainbow of tropical fish, you can spot dolphins leaping playfully out of the water and humpback whales making their way across the ocean. The magnificent white sandy beaches of the island are lined with tall coconut palms, creating the perfect backdrop for an impromptu set of volleyball, hiking, kayaking, or just kicking back in the sun.
Not to be outdone, the nearby Curú National Wildlife Refuge offers an ideal introduction to the many fascinating species of wildlife native to Costa Rica. Despite its relatively small size, the refuge is home to an incredibly diverse array of exotic wildlife, including White-faced monkeys, Howler monkeys, over 200 species of birds and an astonishing variety of plants unique to the area. Within the refuge are five distinct ecological habitats to explore-from tropical, dry and moist forests to coastal and marine habitats. Trails here range from short, easy jaunts to long, strenuous hikes that can take several hours.
Back at the hotel, you'll probably want to take some time to relax. You're in the right place for that! Whether it's a stroll through their beautiful tropical gardens, lounging by the pristine pool with its fully equipped bar, or the soothing therapeutic massages and natural treatments of the Vista Las Islas Spa, you'll quickly develop an affinity for what Costa Rican's fondly call "Pura Vida"-which, loosely translated, means "life at its best." Afterward, savor the culinary delights of the hotel's ocean view restaurant. From Costa Rican favorites like gallo pinto and ceviche to international fare such as filet mignon in brandy sauce, all their tempting dishes are impeccably prepared, reasonably priced, and served with a friendliness and panache unique to Costa Rica.
