Ready to escape into the canopy of a Costa Rican rainforest? 

The Setting

With spectacular rainforest on one side and the glory of the Pacific on the other, Las Catalinas is a new beach town on Costa Rica's Guanacaste Coast. The first hotel in the new coastal town of Las Catalinas, Casa Chameleon built with sustainability as a core principle. It's an immersive and authentic experience that boasts a myriad of outdoor adventures and relaxation endeavors. The adults-only boutique resort embodies classic Costa Rican values, and the architecture and design reflect its presence as a gateway to its Pura Vida. 

Sleep and Sanctuary

With 21 private villas available, and a choice of the three various layouts, privacy and luxury are easy to find at Casa Chameleon at Las Catalinas. Each room has a stunning salt water plunge pool, king size bed, incredibly soft 100% cotton sheets, fully stocked mini-bar, and a private terrace. Que Guapo! While the amenities are sure to be enough, the hotel also boasts many sustainable elements like eco-friendly laundry products, LED lights, locally sourced foods, a recycling program, and a drip irrigation system to water plants. Have we died and gone to hotel heaven?
