Located just outside the laidback town of Santa Teresa on the Nicoya Peninsula, Latitude 10 has a similarly relaxed and friendly vibe.

In keeping with much of Costa Rica, the emphasis here is on an affinity with nature, but taken near to its logical extension - think no air conditioning and completely open air bathrooms in the 10 Balinese style private casitas. The owners take environmental concerns very seriously, and proudly claim that no trees were cut down when buildingthe hotel.

The casitas are dotted around in the trees between the main clubhouse and the lovely beach where guests can relax on comfy private sunloungers or take surfing lessons on the forgiving beach break right in front of the hotel. For the less intrepid, there are yoga classes, massages and facials available.

Breakfasts are served on the terrace outside the clubhouse and overlooking the saltwater pool, but there is no actual restaurant at the hotel so instead guests can pre-arrange for lunches and dinners served at their casita by the excellent chef, or wander along the beach to the restaurant at the (equally lovely) Flor Blanca hotel.

Why we love it

The hotel was originally built as a private house, and with just 10 rooms and no locks on the doors, this still feels as if you're staying with friends.
