Punta Islita, in the Nicoya Peninsula, located only 8 miles (13 km) southwest of Playa Carrillo in the Costa Rican Pacific is quite an interesting place to spend the holidays. Although you can get there driving, we highly recommend that you fly into the resortís landing strip and donít risk yourself in the bad roads unless you have a car with very high clearance and in the middle of dry season. The beauty of the Punta Islita is so magnificent that you would be amazed with what your eyes see. Punta Islita is actually two small secluded beaches, this place and Playa Corozalito, situated between Camaronal Beach and Bejuco Beach. The road that connects Punta Islita with Corozalito is very picturesque. It wanders through wooded hills, 460 feet (140 meters) above sea level, which afford views of brilliant red sunsets, just before the sun slips into the sea. The days in Punta Islita will be unbelievable with all the natural beauty and magic that this beach has to offer, a first class vacation spot. Some people that visit actually consider Punta Islita a more permanent home. Horseback riding along Punta Islita and Corozalito will definitely brighten your vacation and hiking in the nearby hills will give you quite a look of the Costa Rican stunning flora and fauna: howler monkeys, iguanas, butterflies and many different plants are definitely a gift to your eyes. A less than a mile long beach, Punta Islita will be in your memory for yet, many years to come.
