Costa Rica has established itself as a premier tourism destination thanks to a combination of its astoundingly beautiful landscapes and the country's environmentally friendly treatment of those landscapes, and Mint Santa Teresa is a hotel that shows that combination in action. The elegantly designed tourism locale combines the much sought after tenets of European aesthetics with the natural wonder of Costa Rica.
It doesn't take much to create a beautiful living environment in Costa Rica, and Mint Santa Teresa does a great job of letting the land speak for itself. The hotel is built along the slope of a hillside, and it incorporates the flora of that hillside into its gardens and patios, ultimately synchronizing nature with human-focused design principles.
