Costa Rica wins top tourism honors again! Costa Rica nabbed 12 out of 25 spots for “Top 25 Destinations in Central America” in the 2012 Trip Advisor Traveler’s Choice Awards. The internationally renowned travel web site gave Costa Rican establishments 11 awards for “Top 25 Hotels in Central America.” And coming in at Number One for “Best Beach in Central America” is the country’s newly famous Santa Teresa Beach! This makes it the second year in a row that Santa Teresa has placed in the top 10.
Santa Teresa Beach, a little fishing village turned into a rising “off-the-track” tourism gem, lies on the southwestern tip of Costa Rica’s Nicoya Peninsula along the rugged Pacific Coast. Known for its romantic tropical landscapes, spectacular sunsets, epic surf breaks and long wide beaches, Santa Teresa is your quintessential tropical paradise. Picture it … soft powdery white sand, thundering cobalt blue waves rolling onto shore, soft breezes wafting playfully over you as you lounge in the shade of coconut palms, and a warm yellow sun dazzling a zillion sparkles across the water. Your Santa Teresa beachfront oasis, Hotel Tropico Latino, sits right along this tropical beach paradise in a wide, peaceful garden. Tropico Latino features a full-service Spa, a yoga studio with daily classes and activities, surfing and surf instruction right out in front of the hotel, regular yoga and surf retreats, and an award-winning open-air beachfront restaurant nationally-recognized for its organic international cuisine.
Their exquisitely-designed tropical bungalows and suites, built with exotic hardwoods, are surrounded by abundant tropical gardens, giving you the feeling of landing in Shangri-La. Relax by their beachside pool or lounge in a hammock under a grove of coconut and almond trees as you watch a breathtaking sunset. Best of all, enjoy a professional massage while you listen to the rhythm of the waves at the ocean's edge. Hotel Tropico Latino is a Trip Advisor “Certificate of Excellence” winner.
