The Destination
With rhythmic waves lapping against white-sand beaches in one direction, and a symphony of rain forest flora and fauna in the other, Costa Rica's Caribbean coast has the perfect tone and tenor for a remote, restful, and revitalizing getaway. The region is removed even by Costa Rica's standards—a world of breathtaking forest preserves, coconut-tree-lined beaches, and the soothing sounds of nature courtesy of hundreds of species of birds and butterflies—that is, if you can escape the laid-back lull of the area's ever-present calypso and reggae soundtrack.

The Digs
Samasati Nature Retreat strives to be at one with its 250-acre forest surroundings, while simultaneously offering a comfortable and luxurious experience for its guests. The hotel's commitment to sustainability is evident everywhere you look—from cottages and bungalows nestled seamlessly into verdant tropical gardens, to guest rooms with polished wood accents (not to mention private bathrooms and spacious verandas with jungle or ocean views), to locally sourced vegetarian fare. And with activities like rain forest yoga retreats and horseback riding on the beach, Samasati is truly a portal into a boundless world of nature-inspired wonder.

  • "Going to Samasati Nature Retreat was one of the best things I've done for myself. The food is so healthy and delicious. And every bungalow has a hammock that you can lie in while listening to the sounds of the jungle."
