About the area:

Punta Islita is a pristine beach located on the Nicoya Peninsula southwest of Playa Carrillo in the Costa Rican Pacific Coast. The area is accessible by land or by local flights using Nature Air. The drive from Liberia (Daniel Oduber) International Airport takes about 3 to 3.5 hours, and from San José is about 4.5 to 5 hours. The local flight takes around 30 to 45 minutes and you arrive to the Corozalito airstrip, which is about 10 minutes away to Punta Islita town.

Punta Islita is actually two small secluded beaches, Islita Beach and Corozalito Beach. These two beaches are situated between Camaronal Beach and Bejuco Beach. The road that connects Punta Islita with Corozalito is very picturesque, crossing a waterfall on the road, scenic views of the ocean and cattle farms. Punta Islita beach is less than a mile long and it lies in a small cove. It is watered by two streams that form estuaries. Corozalito is slightly larger and has a beautiful mangrove swamp.

Punta Islita is a small village tucked in a valley at a bend in the road. In its plaza sits an amazing picturesque little white church and bell tower.

Driving downhill you arrive at the village of Islita. In 1994 the luxury resort of Punta Islita was opened and the hotel did more than providing only jobs: residents could participate in classes of English, computer skills and arts. Creativeness and personal development was encouraged and the results are visible: the community of Islita is tidy and relatively wealthy, and the village cheerfully adorned with naive paintings and mosaics.

From Punta Islita it is around 30 minutes drive to Carrillo Beach and 45 minutes to Samara Beach.

The luxury of nature

When you think about luxury you think about marble floors and crystal lamps, but luxury in paradise is another kind of luxury.  It has to do with the luxury of pure air, natural forest, blue unpolluted skies, crystal clear rivers and the sounds of wild animals as the background.  That kind of luxury is not common any more, and it is kind of a rare find, especially when you are looking for that unique piece of property in paradise.  More and more foreigners come to Costa Rica every year looking for the luxury of nature, and many of our listings are the perfect match between nature and luxury.   Villa Selva Mar is the best example of this unique quality that a million dollar home in paradise has to have.  More details here.  http://www.costaricamilliondollarhomes.com/Casa-Villa-Selva-Mar/index.html
