Latitude 10 Resort, Santa Teresa

Latitude 10 Resort is an ideal luxury Costa Rica adventure vacation retreat for families, friends, honeymoons, and romantic getaways. Originally built as a private house, each of the 5 beach-front casitas still retain the essence of the private resort. As the winner of the 2008 Grand Award in the International Class for second homes, this Costa Rica vacation resort leaves nothing to be desired in luxury and elegance in its natural setting between the jungle and tropical beach of Santa Theresa on the Nicoya Peninsula.

Latitude 10 Costa Rica beach resort consists of five spacious, free standing, individually decorated and private casitas. Each casita has its own tropical décor, situated on seven acres of private beachfront property located near the bustling beach town of Santa Teresa on the Southern tip of the Nicoya Peninsula in Costa Rica. Staying at Latitude 10 is like staying with good friends at their luxury beach house. You will experience personalized service and attention to detail in a relaxed, yet classy atmosphere.

The casitas were designed and built by a local architect without any trees being cut down. The wooden structures have shades but no windows and there are no locks on the doors. The bathrooms are completely open-air with large hot water showers and gardens. It is more than a lovely room, it is a structure enabling you to sleep and reside completely in harmony with nature.

Porches with cozy chairs and hammocks, ceiling fans, safe deposit boxes, and a twice-daily housekeeping service add to your comfort. In the evening, the shades are pulled down, candles and incense lit, and the lights are dimmed; the turndown service is paired with the sounds of nature provides a very tranquil and very Costa Rican experience.
