Cristal Azul is a beach lovers dream destination perfect for small groups, families and destination events. Nestled on a hillside overlooking the surf below, your group will experience unrivaled privacy, tranquility & barefoot luxury at this hidden gem! Four cozy cabinas provide the creature comforts of home while an open air Rancho provides a stunning setting to unplug, unwind, eat, drink & be merry with your nearest and dearest. Surrounded by wildlife & nature, you are truly immersed in what Costa Rica was like before the world arrived.

An award winning Boutique B&B for over 12 years, Cristal Azul is now available to travelers who prefer the experience of a private rental property. Located in the remote and undeveloped beach town of San Miguel your group will enjoy stunning views and barefoot luxury at this tropical playground in paradise. Nestled on 15 acres of hillside property with no public roads to reach us and no signs to point the way, Cristal Azul may take a bit of effort to reach, but we promise, it will be much harder to leave. This is a destination where memories that will last a lifetime are created.


Adventurous Travelers Welcome!

Perfect for the adventurous spirit who likes to stray off the beaten path, half the journey to reach this remote beach is spent traversing bumpy roads only passable with a 4WD vehicle.

Kayaking in the estuary, snorkeling, horseback, waterfalls, tide pools, yoga, surf, SUP, cooking classes, sport fishing and so much more, we are here to help you plan along the way and guide you to ensure you get the most out of the area while here!

A truly personalized experience filled with old fashioned fun, fine local cuisine and culture await you at Cristal Azul. We promise you comfort and barefoot luxury in a place that many consider to one of the last untouched hidden gems of Costa Rica. It is our goal that you leave wishing you could stay a little longer!
