Beija Flor weighs in as a surprising good-value retreat. The 11 guest rooms and two villas at this boutique hotel are sparsely chic and set in a tropical garden. When the surf isn’t up on the Nicoya peninsula, guests indulge in spa treatments, yoga classes, and sunset horseback rides. With its nature-rich setting near the Cabo Blanco nature reserve, guests are nearly guaranteed a tropical bird or iguana sighting. The open-air restaurant serves an appealing French-Asian fusion cuisine. Driving to the resort is possible, but flying to nearby Playa Tambor via a local airline from San José is best.
