Hector has been with Latitude 10 for a relatively short time but his experience in hospitality and tourism is extensive. We’re so happy to have Hector working with us and even happier that we were able to celebrate his birthday with guests and staff here at Latitude 10.
If you have a birthday coming up you should spend it with your family and friends in sunny Santa Teresa!
This letter was sent to us by a couple of our fantastic guests!
It has been a week since we left the awe inspiring resort- Latitude 10. The experience of our 5-day vacation was like no other I have experienced. We were welcomed by the most pristine and private setting surrounded by immaculately groomed resort grounds.
The architecture is beautiful as are the furnishings, linens, and smells of the fresh ocean air. The staff welcomed us like friends they had been waiting to see and made us feel right at home. Being immersed in the open environment of the resort and casitas is truly liberating to experience. I welcomed the sounds of the monkeys each night and even an occasional raccoon to our casita. In the morning, I did not want to sleep for I knew the staff would welcome me with fresh coffee, amazing food & most importantly, smiles and conversation. The quiet walks on the beach; the gourmet food, the laughter and the friendships are just a few of the memories I take with me each day.
I feel so blessed to have been able to get to know the other guests that were at the resort during our stay and the Latitude 10 staff! Maricella became a true friend to me very quickly as did ALL of the other wonderful Latitude 10 family. They made sure we had everything we needed or wanted at all times. We have stayed in resorts all over the world and by far- this was the best experience to date. We look forward to visiting the resort each year and Thank You All very much!
Till we return….

But where are the other rooms?
This is a common question we get when we show people their private casita. Many people are used to booking a hotel and getting a small apartment with a bed, a couch if they’re lucky and a mini bar. This is nothing like Latitude 10.
Our staff is the heart and soul of the hotel and the reason we are able to offer such a high level of service.
What we offer is a private, exclusive casita to every couple who comes to Latitude 10. The windows are wide open and the shower is outside but that does not compromise your privacy as you cannot see a single person due to the thick foliage and placement of the casitas. Each of our casitas has so much space that you will never feel crowded.
If you’re looking for privacy, exclusivity and tranquility… you will find it here.
Lighting candles throughout the room is just part of the luxurious turn down service.
Turn down service normally happens at around 5 pm. A normal turn down service would close the curtains, open the covers on the bed and maybe put a couple bottles of water or juice out for you.

Our turn down service is a little different. We do all those things but since our casitas are all stand alone we are able to take it to the next level by laying out candles, rose petals, preparing drinks and dimming the outdoors lights. It’s the kind of experience that can easily take your breath away when you come back from dinner.
Our goal here at Latitude 10 is to make your stay not only as comfortable as possible but also to show off our region and service!
Every “room” at Latitude 10 is its own stand alone casita.
Costa Rica is an incredible place. People who come here are looking for something when they travel here, even if they don’t know what that thing is yet.
The king sized beds will ensure incredible sleep and a great view through the windows
When our guests, or huéspedes in Spanish, arrive at Latitude 10 what they find is an incredibly unique and private experience unlike anything they have experienced before.
When you arrive at Latitude 10 you will be shown to your casita by one of our amazing staff members, given the chance to sample something from our smoothie menu and you will have the chance to see Costa Rica like only a handful of people ever will.
The privacy, luxury, exclusivity, and openness of Latitude 10 is not for everyone, but if you are someone who is looking for that special place that you haven’t found yet we think you might find it here.
The shower at Latitude 10 is right outside your room. Totally private
Latitude 10 is a place for private, tranquil relaxation. The way our hotel is setup is unlike anything else in the Santa Teresa region. Each “room” is actually its own stand alone structure with a private deck surrounded by nature which overlooks the beach.

In the center of the property we have our main building with the kitchen, bar, restaurant and of course the infinity pool out front. This is a great spot to unwind with your travel partner, soak up some sun or have a relaxing swim after swimming through the surf.
A complimentary minibar selection in every room.
Our infinity pool looks out across the beach and is the ideal spot to watch the sunset. Make sure to let one of the staff know if you’d like a fresh fruit smoothie and it will be delivered. Let us show you what makes Santa Teresa so special.

Latitude 10 isn’t just for surfers! Our property is ideally located steps from the ocean which is an amazing place for recreation. Of course we love surfing but we’re also huge fans of fishing!
The waters near Santa Teresa are filled with a wide ranging species of fish and the best way to get out there is in a kayak! Not only do kayaks offer a quiet, eco-friendly way of seeing the water but it also makes the fight for the fish much more exciting!
Last weekend we went out with James and after his second cast with a popper he hooked into a ten pound Jack fish. We released the Jack to fight another day but kept fishing. Jose Pablo then caught a nice little snapper which made a delicious snack.
Latitude 10 resort and our partner hotels have teamed up with Earth Equilibrium to give back to the communities around us. We are very proud of the work that is being done and have set some ambitious fundraising goals to hit.
This year we are trying to reach $4,000 Usd of fundraising which will purchase 70 desks and five shelf units for the local school in Santa Teresa.
If you are interested in donating to this program it can be done right at the front desk of Latitude 10 while you are staying with us. To learn more about Earth Equilibrium visit their website.
There’s more and more review sites that pop up online everyday! There’s TripAdvisor, Hotels.com and Google/Zagat. We’re always keen to see what people are writing about us. Here’s a sample from our TripAdvisor.com page:
“It’s really the best place in Santa Teresa”
“I’ve always been against giving an “excellent” rating to all categories on a review as it might seem a biased or a not serious review, however there is always an exception to every rule. In this case it applies to my recent stay at Latitude10.”
“Understated, casual, luxury. I almost cried when we had to leave!”
“A perfect place to relax….Staff made it memorable”
We couldn’t agree with them more! Thanks so much for everyone who has stayed with us and taken the time to share their experience. We hope to see you again soon!
What do you have planned for the Green Season?
At Latitude 10 we never stop living in paradise. No matter what time of the year it is there is always something to do and great things to see. That’s the beautiful part of Costa Rica. During the Green Season it normally rains for a short period daily. This makes the forests come alive with new growth, the rivers run wild and and gives the farmers some much needed irrigation.
We welcome Green Season at Latitude 10 and would love to share the beauty of this time of year with our friends and family.
Contact us today and let us tell you about our special green season rates!
