Evelyn and Roberto (the managers at this hotel) have created a jewel of a place to experience Santa Teresa. From the comfortable bungalows in the rainforest, to the open air restaurant with fresh, delicious food and an outstanding view of the ocean, to the spa and yoga offerings... this place will help make your trip!

I had a unique experience staying at Hotel Tropico Latino. We literally felt like we were in the jungle with an amazing, natural beach a few steps away. But there was no "roughing it" here. We had world class meals in a beautiful outdoor setting where we experienced the beauty of the Pacific Ocean. Our room had all the amenities... More

We couldn´t have asked for more. From the moment we set foot we felt welcomed and spoiled. We had every meal there and it was spectacular, our room was big and comfy. I slept there as one should every day. 100% recommended.

Went back this past weekend with all my staff from work and had a great time. All of them were impressed by the beauty of the place, the gardens and how close we were from the ocean. Like previous times food and service were great. We stayed at the wooden house right by the beach.

Santa Teresa is not as sleepy as it once was - finding tranquillity is not automatic. Hotel tropico Latino is wonderfully quiet, except for surf sounds. Pool is great for kids when waves are too big at the beach. Estaban, Jose Luis Rodigrigues (chef), and other crew at the restaurant go above and beyond. The meal they prepared from the... More
