Flora & Fauna

As Mother Nature Intended

Nature conservation is an integral part of our sustainable philosophy. Nestled away in one of Costa Rica’s most biodiverse corners, we feel a strong duty towards our natural surroundings and environment.

Our Approach

Caring For Our Natural World
A Healthy Ecosystem

Healthy nature is beautiful nature

We’re blessed with beautiful beaches. In fact, the shores of the Marino Ballena National Park are some of the cleanest in all of southern Costa Rica. So much so that they’ve been awarded the national Ecological Blue Flag award in recognition. We support the local entities that have been set up to make sure that our beaches hold onto this accolade, and we also hold seminars around town and in local schools, teaching the community how to keep our beautiful ecosystems healthy.

We encourage our guests to visit our nearby national parks for a taste of nature at its most pristine. Favorites include the Marino Ballena National Park and Caño Island.

Specialty Tours

We work exclusively with local nature lovers

We offer a number of tours for our guests to explore the surrounding rainforest and beaches, and outsource exclusively to local micro businesses who share our same philosophies on nature conservation. Our preferred guide, Jovino, spent years learning all about rainforest life and nature preservation and his passion makes him a firm guests’ favorite.


“I was awestruck that such a place like Kura can be in existence in the middle of nowhere. None of the pictures do it justice – it’s something you have to experience for yourself. The sheer presence of such nature from the unobstructed panoramic views from pretty much anywhere in the hotel is almost overwhelming. It evoked some emotion that’s for sure.”
