TRAVELS > LAS CATALINAS

Las Catalinas, a very unique town in Guanacaste, Costa Rica.

The founders of Las Catalinas, a New Urbanist beach town located in Costa Rica, had a dream to slow time down while creating a sustainable way of life. They took the best from the world architectural heritage to design an idyllic place to vacation or even, to live.

DESIGN PHILOSOPHY

The vision was to make Las Catalinas environmentally friendly and walkable, but approachable by intertwining the private and public spaces. They adhered to the following design tenants:

Creating architecture that is timeless and simple. Taking advantage of every view – to the sky, to the sea, to the mountains. Ensuring longevity by using sustainable, durable materials. Honoring the location and climate by designing buildings that can sustain the extremes. Perpetuating the honesty and purity of the site by implementing multiple environmental standards to minimize the footprint of the development.

TOP RATE RESORT

It should not be forgotten that this is a resort town – full of amenities to delight all types of travelers. Whether your passion is swimming, sunning, hiking, or cooking – every need has been anticipated and every detail designed for maximum pleasure.

ARCHITECTURAL ELEMENTS

Everything is deliberate here. The deep overhangs guard against the strong afternoon sun and/or showers. Views are towards the ocean or the mountains. Local iconic elements are interspersed throughout the development to enforce a sense of place.

The Color Palette

There is a very distinctive, deliberate color scheme here. Hues drawn from nature – the sky, the sea, the sand – are everywhere. Bold punches of color accentuate the neutrals and create a harmony with the surroundings. The "harmony" created by the colors above invokes a sense of calm and serenity. The darker hues ground the palette by creating a strong foundation. The lighter ones emit a warm energy.
