Originally built as a private summer hang-out, Latitude 10° Resort is the kind of place where you’ll trade stories with friends you’ve just met. With only 5 luxury casitas at our boutique hotel – all open-air – each one is surrounded by overgrown palms and native plants. And the best part? You’re just steps away from the Pacific Ocean.
We’ll help you disconnect from the world at Latitude 10°. At the snap of a finger we can arrange professional therapists for relaxing massages, wellness treatments and private yoga lessons. Enjoy them in our open-air treatment room, by the ocean, or in the privacy of your casita. All you’ll need to do is lie back, listen to the waves, and enjoy those ocean breezes.
Situated within walking distance of a world-famous surf break, Latitude 10° resort is a great place to catch waves… or catch up on your ZZZs. We recommend a little of both. Unplug. Read. Chill. And when you’re craving some action, we’ll organize your perfect adventure. From some of the best snorkeling in Costa Rica to horseback riding through the hills.
We believe that the tastiest dishes start with the purest ingredients. That’s why we source locally and organically, fish responsibly in our own waters, and cook exclusively grass-fed beef and hormone-free chicken. Here, you’ll enjoy fresh and wholesome food from sunrise to sundown. And it tastes even better with a glass of biodynamic South American wine by the beach.
Come for the Santa Teresa sunsets. Pedal into town. Take in the atmosphere of true Costa Rica surf. You’ll feel like a local in no time.
At Latitude 10 Resort, every detail has been carefully designed to make sure you feel right at home. Originally created as a summer residence for two friends, personalized pampering with a smile and all the luxuries of a top resort await you.
