Las Catalinas


Why Choose Our Destination?

Las Catalinas is a beach town located on the Guanacaste Coast of Costa Rica. Its purpose is to create a way of life that is healthy, sustainable, fulfilling, and fun. It is a place where it is easy to connect with other people, and with nature itself. Las Catalinas is composed of houses, shops, restaurants, small hotels and inns, pedestrian streets, plazas, parks, and recreational facilities. All elements are arranged to create a series of wonderful, walkable public spaces interwoven with nature. Architecture is adapted for outdoor living. Motorized vehicles are refreshingly absent. A constant ebb and flow of fellow residents and visitors enrich the scene. Every street leads to scenic overlooks. Every home frames incredible views. On one side our town is embraced by over 1,000 acres of spectacular tropical dry forest hills and valleys with extensive hiking, biking, and horseback trails. On the other side is the Pacific Ocean where we have two of the finest beaches in all of Costa Rica with great swimming, stand up paddle boarding, kayaking, boogie boarding, and snorkeling.

Atypical souvenirs, apparel, accessories, homeware, stationery, books and more. The studio specializes in ideas, branding, graphics and web design

Wake Spa

In line with the ideas of new urbanism and community that drive the town of Las Catalinas, WAKE presents a fresh take on the urban day spa. Different from standard, exclusive resort spas, WAKE is an accessible and casual place where both locals and visitors can find excellent body care, esthetic services, a healthy mindset and social connection. We offer a contrast and compliment to the outdoor adventures of Costa Rica and the many active lifestyles in our community. This is a refuge from the elements, a place to regroup and feel clean and cool. Whether someone comes in for a targeted sports massage after a tough workout in nature, or for a relaxing 90-minute massage to relieve accumulated life stresses, or simply for a coffee and a manicure -- our goal is that all guests leave feeling recharged and motivated for healthy living.
