Our favourite rooms
The two Master Suites are in the best spots, with ideal beach (and sunset) views, and a relaxing lounge area. Each of the six open-plan casitas holds a four-poster bed, shuttered doors and a porch with hammocks. The open-air bathrooms have solar-powered rainfall showers. If you get bugged by mosquitoes, stay in the Guest Room, which is less open to the elements and has air-conditioning.
The ionised infinity pool is surrounded by grass and shaded lounge chairs. Beach and surfing haven Santa Teresa de Cobano in Puntarenas is a 15-minute walk from the hotel.
Your rash guard: Latitude 10 has access to some of the best surfing in Central America.
The hotel offers sustainability tours and eco-excursions for guests who want to understand more about the region’s conservation efforts.
Kids of all ages are welcome.
Even in eco-engaged Costa Rica, Latitude 10 stands out for its green efforts: the hotel functions on solar energy, relies on local food suppliers and uses organic cleaning products. The staff also work to keep the local beaches clean.
