There is a sameness that creeps through tourism, one that I wish couldn't encroach on Costa Rica. Resorts of rocks or even trees made or concrete, 25 item menus that are 23 items the same as the last place. Cayuga's hotels, or the ones I've seen are the antidode. And Latitude 10 is the jewel in their crown. That it's sustainable is icing... You couldn't do better under any set of rules.
I've been coming to Costa Rica for 12 years. I can't bring my young family on the same tour of $5 night hotels, but Latitude 10 absolutely taught them the Pura Vida I remember. Nature isn't just beyond the concrete, it's what the place is made of.
(One of my favorite times at Arenas del Mar was fossil hunting in the pool stones with my son. We did that again at Latitude 10 which is entirely small fossilized invertebrates. It's a good picture of both hotels. Everything is close to life. I'm writing this from a hotel where the rocks are fake, some trees are concrete, and the wood is paint. There's so much stuff here, but nothing natural to share with my kids... There's no soul here. I'd go back to Latitude 10 in a second.)
