Located in tiny Santa Teresa on the southern end of the Nicoya Peninsula, Florblanca attracts yoga buffs, spa addicts with an adventurous streak, surfers with money to burn, and celebrities like Leonardo DiCaprio and Gisele Bündchen. Inspired by Balinese architecture, the ten one- and two-bedroom villas—all with sunken tubs and garden showers in the outdoor bathrooms—are constructed of dark hardwoods and have fold-back panel windows on three sides. The beachfront yoga center hosts a year-round program of workshops and retreats and includes an eco-centric spa for natural skin treatments and massages; an on-site biologist leads exploratory hikes into the rainforest. If you still have energy to burn, there's horseback riding, mountain biking, and snorkeling. If not, refuel at the open-air Nectar restaurant, which has a sushi bar (try the creative rolls of fresh-caught tuna and red snapper) and talented young chef Spencer Graves preparing Asian-Pacific-Latino fusion dishes in the kitchen. With a five-leaf rating for green sustainability from the Costa Rican Tourism Board, Florblanca is for in-the-know luxury travelers who want an authentic eco-resort experience without giving up any creature comforts.—Updated by Christopher P.
