inti resort and villas

Inti Resort and Villas is a small, unique and charming world-class Feng Shui resort that is nestled at about 20 kilometers from the picturesque Cahuita village on Costa Rica’s Caribbean coast.

si como no

Introduction

Si Como No is an unassuming, family-friendly luxury eco-resort surrounded by Manuel Antonio’s rainforests. Known for earning the highest CST 5 LEAF Certified sustainable property rating, the resort has been consistently responsible for promoting eco-tourism in the area in form of everything from a fastidious recycling policy to path-breaking conservation programs. Though not a thoroughbred eco-lodge, Si Como No’s owners have made abundant efforts to mitigate the resort’s effect on the surrounding environment and local community. The property’s most significant input to the cause of local eco-tourism comes in the form of a Butterfly Garden and a well-maintained 30-acre wildlife retreat. Not just that, following the vision of founder CEO Jim Damalas, the resort even takes the region’s local eco- cultural practices to adjoining farm villages. Jim Damalas has dexterously woven quality, comfort and convenience with environmentally responsible tourism and seamless hospitality.
