Past guests rave about the service and natural beauty at this resort—Escape to Malpais and see it for yourself.

The Destination
Stationed on the southern tip of Costa Rica's Nicoya Peninsula, Malpais is a surfer's dream. A place of exquisite tropical beauty, this coastal community boasts enough recreational opportunities to keep even the most adventurous travelers busy for years. Once a strip of sleepy fishing villages, Malpais and its neighboring towns of Santa Teresa and Playa Carmen have recently flourished, garnering international attention for their killer breaks and lush jungles. Plus, there are several good restaurants and even more open-til-dawn bars to satisfy avid night owls.

The Digs
Perched on a peaceful hill, the adults-only Hotel Vista de Olas is surrounded by stunning views of Playa Malpais, Playa Carmen, Santa Teresa, and more. Each of the hotel's five bright yellow villas is tucked away in the jungle, affording guests extra privacy. The accommodations are appointed with California king canopy beds and mosaic tile floors, along with a private porch, an open-sky bathroom, and air-conditioning.

The Diversions
There's no lack of sprawling, white-sand beaches in Malpais, and surfers have taken note. Both on and off the beach, dozens of other endeavors are ripe for the undertaking, too, like waterfall excursions, fishing trips, sailing, yoga, and ATV tours. Your package includes your choice of horseback riding, a zip-line canopy tour, or a surf lesson, but Vista de Olas is happy to arrange additional activities for you. After a full day of exploring, be sure and schedule a massage back at your villa for a relaxing cap to your romantic Escape.
