   Let yourself get carried away by Costa Rica’s vibrant soul!

We’re the only hotel in the region that is close to the most attractive of 18 islands surrounding the Southern Nicoya Peninsula. We’re the ideal springboard to go on a tour to San Pedro Island – also known as the „monkey island“ – or to explore the infamous San Luca Island which used to be a prison island. Not only are these islands accessable by boat but some of them even by kayak! Explore the calm waters of the bay between Organos Beach and Tortuga Island by taking a course of Stand Up Paddling.

Vista las Islas offers a unique view of Tortuga Island. This stunningly beautiful, 320-hectare island lies three kilometers offshore of Curú. Tortuga is as close to an idyllic tropical isle as you can get in Costa Rica. Indisputably Costa Rica’s most exquisite island, Tortuga is a favorite destination for excursion boats. The main attraction is a magnificent white-sandy beach lined with tall coconut palms. The waters at Tortuga are surrounded by volcanic rock reef where you can go snorkeling and discover colorful fish. Besides snorkeling, you can go swimming, play volleyball, go hiking, or simply snooze in the sun. There are also oar and pedal boats, water-bicycles and kayaks. King angelfish, porcupine fish, morays, needlefish, spotted eagle rays and a myriad of other tropical beauties make for a phenomenal snorkeling experience. Spotting a group of playful dolphins, marveling at the enormous jumping manta rays or humback whales are just a few examples of marine life.
