Eco-Lodges in Guanacaste and the Nicoya Peninsula
On the mainland, sweeping plains bordered by volcanoes hold remnants of Central America's tropical dry forest. On the Pacific-edged Nicoya Peninsula, conservationists try to protect turtle-nesting beaches from the encroachments of ever-grander resort hotels and vacation houses. Some exemplary resorts are proving that conservation, sustainability, and comfort can go hand in hand.
Harmony Hotel, Nosara. This hotel has earned five leaves in sustainability with its use of biodegradable cleaning products and toiletries, solar-heated hot water, and conscientious recycling policies.
Hotel Lagarta Lodge, Nosara. On a 90-acre private reserve, the quaint Hotel Lagarta Lodge minimizes its environmental impact by keeping a sharp eye on its water and energy consumption.
Hotel Punta Islita, Punta Islita. The ultra-luxurious Hotel Punta Islita is a top performer in the technical categories of water management, energy conservation, and waste disposal.
