Travel + Leisure – Hottest New Hotels and Lodges in Costa Rica

Florblanca is proud to be named as one of Costa Rica’s Hottest New Hotels and Lodges by Travel + Leisure Magazine.

Selected as one of eight noteworthy Costa Rica hotels, Florblanca was chosen for its Asian-inspired ambiance, serene locale and plentiful amenities. Here’s an excerpt from the article, published in August 2012:

“Each of Florblanca’s 11 villas is accented with organic fabrics and native hardwoods, and all have terraces outfitted with hammocks. (Book the Surf House, steps from the ocean.) After an evening yoga class on the beach, kick back with a tamarind mojito—or two—from the open-air Nectar bar.”

We couldn’t be more thrilled to receive this distinction and we invite you to come see for yourself what makes this resort so special! Whether you’re planning a surf vacation, honeymoon or an exotic getaway, Florblanca will provide an unforgettable experience.
