We stayed in Bungalow 3 (two double beds and a private porch) for three nights at the start of our week long vacation. The room was very spacious and comfortable with high ceilings with fans, plenty of room to move around, AC, mini fridge, and bathroom with a rainfall shower. The porch had a private hammock and chairs for relaxing....

We stayed in the studio apartment at Hotel Tropico Latino in March. The apartment had all of the amenities we could ask for, with an incredible location- steps from the beach! The studio features a full-sized kitchen with adjacent dining/living room, private bathroom, and comfortable bedroom with a queen sized bed. The living room also featured an additional single bed....

Our locations is definitely one of the things we are very proud of about our hotel. We are so lucky to have a property in the heart of Santa Teresa and a very strategic location that brings our guest just a few steps away from the beach.

I thoroughly enjoyed the entire hotel experience, from the hotel rooms to the grounds to the staff and food.I will be returning back again in the future, this time hopefully with friends and/or family. The Surf Camp (Pura Vida Adventures) was everything I'd hoped for and then some.

2nd time in three years. I´m ready for the 3rd and more. Peaceful, lots of nature, staff ready to help. At walking distance from restaurants, and surf rentals. If possible, avoid late arrivals, because the regular staff leaves around 19:30 pm.

I didn't stay at this hotel but I did spend some time here. I took a yoga class and had 2 spa treatments. The yoga was great. I went to a beginner class and the experience of having the ocean breeze and sound was very relaxing. I had a massage and a special wrap/massage/facial for $130. Natalia, my therapist was...
