Glamping on a Remote Tropical Island
You’ll be heading back across the Nicoya Gulf today, and travelling south towards Jacó. As you hop on the ferry, there is a beautiful little island in the gulf known as Jesusita Island and this will be your stop for two nights.
A glorious, untouched gem of lush green forest and golden sand beaches set in glistening blue waters, it’s an incredible place to get off the beaten track and experience nature at its purest.
During the day you can try your hand at artisanal fishing, your guide will take you to some of the best spots on the island and you can catch fish in the traditional way, spending a day getting to know the slow life of the local fisherme. In the afternoon relax and take in the sunset from your lounging deck, accompanied by only the sounds of nature, the gentle hissing of the surf and the call of tropical birds, in your own private paradise.
On one evening you will have the opportunity to see a rare natural sight on the ocean, as darkness falls and you take to a boat just off the coast where you will witness the amazing sight of bioluminescence! In the dark waters surrounding Isla Chiquita there are high concentrations of light-emitting plankton that create this magical effect. Upon being disturbed, the algae give off a burst of light, and as there are millions of them it looks like sparkles in the water. Depending on the number of algae it appears as bluish or greenish sparkles, and is a magical sight.
