Where you’ll be

Manuel Antonio, Puntarenas, Costa Rica

Manuel Antonio is considered The Crown Jewel of Costa Rica

Manuel Antonio is a small but nevertheless extremely popular vacation beach town located on the Pacific coast. Known for its surrounding area, Manuel Antonio is a treasure for biodiversity, attracting nature-buffs, eco-travelers, and adventure-seekers alike. Better yet, if you visit, you can soak up white sand and perfect warm Pacific waters. Without a doubt, Manuel Antonio lies within one of the country’s most celebrated spots.

Manuel Antonio has fabulous parasailing, surfing, plenty of restaurants, nightlife, awesome beaches, sport-fishing, and a beautiful national park with plenty of wildlife, it’s clear why this town remains so popular. Thousands flock to Playa Espadilla and its surrounding sands each year. Because Manuel Antonio is situated on rolling hills, tourists are drawn by breathtaking views of the Pacific, surrounding jungle and pristine beaches. Although a wide variety of tourism-based businesses have sprung up along the jungle forested hills, Vista Hermosa Estate might feel like you’re staying at a luxury hotel with all the amenities, but that won’t stop troops of monkeys from scattering across the top floor.

Sanctuary For Wildlife Lovers

Manuel Antonio has managed to strike a fine balance between development and nature, maintaining plenty of its thick tropical rainforest. Even as a wide variety of tourism-based businesses have sprung up along the jungle forested hills, Manuel Antonio retains its integrity for what matters most to tourists. As you are sure to discover here, there is no shortage of beautiful wildlife to take in all around this picturesque town… serene manna for those looking to connect with nature.

Home to 109 species of mammals and 184 species of birds, the most popular animals among visitors include three of Costa Rica’s four monkey species (squirrel monkeys, Mantled howler monkeys, and white-faced capuchin monkeys) two species of sloth, (the brown-throated three-toed sloth and two-toed sloth), toucans, scarlet macaws, several types of iguanas, and coatis, just to name a few. Most of these rainforest animals can be seen from our many balconies and while hiking our private beach trail.

If you appreciate beautiful beaches, then you are going to absolutely love Manuel Antonio!

Manuel Antonio is centrally located for almost any tour you would want to do in Costa Rica. Ziplining, hiking, waterfalls, white-water rafting, canyoning, ATV tours, waterfall rappelling, mangrove tours, parasailing, horseback riding, stand up paddleboarding, jet skiing, sport fishing, sunset cruises, and whale watching tours are all available.

You can’t come to Manuel Antonio without experiencing its famous national park. With sloths, 3 types of monkeys, basilisks, iguanas, and exotic birds along even the main trail, you won’t have to look hard to find wildlife. The park contains a charming combination of rain forest, beaches, and coral reefs. Many trails in the park have been improved recently, so you will find well-maintained paths that lead to spectacular viewpoints, secluded beaches, and small waterfalls. You can also sunbathe and snorkel at the park’s many beaches.

Manuel Antonio with its beautiful beaches and scenic jungles, happens to be a very popular wedding destination.

Manuel Antonio is one of the best places for dining in all of Costa Rica. While fresh off-the-boat seafood is a standard, the town also has dozens of restaurants with everything from authentic Italian, steak houses, sushi, pizza, and BBQ. Most restaurants are situated on viewpoints that offer spectacular ocean & sunset views while others are in an open setting surrounded with a tropical background.

With the addition of the Quepos Marina, the area now has several more amazing restaurants to choose from overlooking the marina. From contemporary seafood dishes, delicious homemade pasta and great steaks. The marina also includes several shops and boutiques.
