Accommodation and Amenities
Tucked away in the heart of Costa Rica’s indigenous vegetation, Latitude 10’s five casitas spell natural charm and class. Each private bungalow is unusually and elegantly appointed, to sport its own unique persona and aura. The private casitas are created out of almond wood and adorned with touches of native art and handicrafts. Guests can discover small treasures and tiny knick knacks in the form if a coconut shell filled with sand or a bamboo ladder. Every room features such creative decoratives that epitomize the spirit of Costa Rica’s natural and tropical splendor.
All casitas are designed and built by an award winning architect without having harmed any trees in the process. The elegant wooded structures have shades but windows, locks and doors are completely missing here. There are open air bathrooms featuring hot water showers and verdant gardens.
