Perched on a hill in a gated community estate overlooking Quepos, your private apartment awaits. The forest surrounding your apartment is bursting with life, from monkeys to birds to iguanas.

The apartment is situated in an ideal location, walking distance to Quepos and just off the main road leading into Manuel Antonio. You can walk to anything Quepos has to offer and find a taxi or bus just outside the gated entrance to go into Manuel Antonio.

Your apartment includes all the amenities you would expect from a great hotel:
- Clean bedding and environment
- Fast wifi internet
- air conditioned room (not really needed except for a couple hours in the afternoon, the mornings and evenings are cool here and we're so high up we don't really have any mosquitos!)
- Maid service!
- Washing clothes (optional extra)

Your private Villa apartment is detached from main house with your own separate entrance, You'll also appreciate there's a slight temperature drop even when you're just a couple hundred feet higher up.

Nestled inside a well maintained gated community and home to the Rain Drop Spa, Manuel Antonio Estates sits on the main road to world famous Manuel Antonio national park and its beaches. A true sanctuary when you're home, yet very easy access to everything Quepos and Manuel Antonio has to offer! From zip lining tours, massages, surfing (yes!), fishing, golf, hiking, gym, horseback riding, sight seeing, snorkeling/diving, boating, jet skis, swimming, wildlife viewing, tennis, biking, yoga, shopping, white water rafting and more!

It seems you'll never run out of new foods to experience, from some of our favorite restaurants in Quepos (with healthy options too!) to the long row of restaurants and hotels in Manuel Antonio.

Looking for an amazing place to stay before you continue on your journey through Costa Rica, you won't want to miss an opportunity to stay at Happy Jacana.

Costa Rica is often referred to as the gem of central america, and Manuel Antonio, the gem of Costa Rica. The property is uniquely situated at the start of Manuel Antonio, just after Quepos, so you get the best of both worlds. 10 minutes from Quepos airport, a 45 min. drive to Dominical, 45 minutes away from world class waves in Hermosa and the buzz of Jaco Beach. Plus there's many places just a short drive away if you want to actively explore the are awhile you're here.

James and Shereen live at Happy Villa Jacana through most of the year. James is an avid surfer and entrepreneur. Shereen is a passionate about healthy eating and juicing. After you book your apartment with us you'll receive a "welcome guide" that will unlock the secret to having the best Manuel Antonio experience ever! From the secret surfing spots to our favorite eats, you'll get it all!

. If you have any hesitation at all about staying here, feel free to ask any questions you might have. My goal when you book the Happy Jacana is to make sure you have the best / happiest experience possible from the time you arrive to the time you leave. Feel free to ask questions or share any feedback you might have before your stay, during your stay and especially afterwards!
