You’re lounging in an airy villa – with rain showers and a plunge pool fed by natural hot springs – in the Costa Rican rainforest. A personal host tends to your every need, whether arranging a wildlife-spotting hike or a private yoga lesson in the open-air studio. It’s just another unforgettable day at Nayara Springs, one of the top-rated hotels.

For 19 years and counting, Travel + Leisure magazine has asked readers to vote for their favorite hotels and resorts, evaluating them in categories like value, food, service, rooms and location. More than just a list of the best properties, the World’s Best Awards results also highlight bigger travel trends – including where travelers, as a community, are going.
