The name of the hotel “Capitán Suizo” on the one hand is due to the small island “El Capitán” which is in front of the hotel and on the other hand to the fact that the family that owns the hotel comes from Switzerland “Suizo”.

In 1992, the owners of Captain Suizo, Ursula and Ruedi Schmid leave Switzerland and settle in Costa Rica with their two children in search of new challenges and new adventures. They fell in love with an untouched land, full of tropical vegetation and beautiful native trees, right on the beach of a small fishing village. After three years of construction “by hand”, the dream of a small jewel, in contact with nature and in harmony with the philosophy of this country and its people was born.
