Why Stay At Cala Luna Boutique Hotel & Villas
A five-minute stroll from Tamarindo, Costa Rica, the secluded, Sardinia-inspired Cala Luna offers easy access to the Pacific and Tamarindo National Wildlife Refuge.
A trip to Costa Rica's Nicoya Peninsula isn't complete without a visit to Tamarindo, a laidback beach town where Italian hoteliers Antonio Pilurzu and Els Depypere set up their Sardinia-inspired escape, the 41-room Cala Luna on Playa Langosta. After years of careful attention and an extensive renovation in 2011, slick hotel interiors now exude an updated, tropical paradise feel, and each room has floor-to-ceiling windows that frame the property's tropical gardens. Head out on a two-minute walk west for the white sand of Langosta Beach, or continue down the coast for Tamarindo, where backpackers and swimsuit-clad locals converge at casual restaurants and oceanfront beach bars.
Explore the area on two wheels: Cab rides are a fixed $5 per trip, but bike rentals at the hotel are only $10 for the entire day.
Arrive at Daniel Oduber Quiros International Airport (LIR) which is approximately 40 miles from the hotel. Anticipate about 60 minutes of travel time.Langosta Beach, 155, Tamarindo, Guanacaste, Costa Rica

Why We Love Tamarindo

Tours leave at 8:30 am and 1:30 pm from Playa Tamarindo and Playas del Coco.
Must-See Monument: Visit Santa Rosa National Park (one hour north of the property), to see the Hacienda Santa Rosa, a 19th-century mansion that dates back to the Costa Rican victory over invading Nicaraguan forces.
Highway 1, Liberia.
Where to Eat: Don't miss Nibbana, a beloved Tamarindo restaurant that serves French-influenced dishes such as tuna tartare. Come nightfall, order a mojito and stroll towards the beach.
