As a travel destination, Las Catalinas has grown in importance in recent years, being featured and on covers of major travel publications such as Travel + Leisure . Described as a "Costa Rican paradise, made to order for travelers", this coastal resort town has gained international acclaim for its small-town vibe, authentic Costa Rican culture, and scenic beauty. While its luxurious boutique hotel Casa Chameleon has won awards for its zero-edge infinity pool, the town grounds also offer a large share of its 70+ villas and apartments as vacation homes, with guests being able to mingle with full and part-time residents and turning this local community into a more international, cultural melting-pot of a like-minded collective.
