Our neighborhood is ( we think) in the perfect location. Tucked in the jungle just 350 meters from main road, in a quiet neighborhood, but just 2 minutes from everything.
We are 350 meters from the main road where the buses run all day long, approximately every 15 minutes, for about 60 cents. Also taxis are readily available for aprox. $4.00 to the town of Quepos or $6.00 to the main beach.
Other Things to Note
We are on a quiet residential cul-de-sac. Quiet time is 10:00 in outside common areas.
Remember to bring beach towels and to enjoy yourselves!
Great place! Super convenient to the beach and restaurants/stores. The hosts were very friendly and (email hidden)d had WONDERFUL restaurant suggestions for dinner and lunch! Cute little touches like towels folded in animals and welcome basket were really sweet! Wish we could have stayed longer!
This was a wonderful place to stay. Very nice, clean room. Just like the picture. The pool was right outside and the place was very close to the National Park. Paula helped a lot with recommendations for restaurants and with helping us get to the National Park by bus. Lots of places to eat around and very close to beaches. Loved it!
Muy buen lugar para alojarse en Manuel Antonio. Es limpio y sus dueños (Paula y Clark) son muy simpáticos y abiertos a ayudarte en cualquier momento.
We can't say enough about Jungle Creek! The room was exactly as advertised. Very spacious and comforting room with all the basic amenities (including a welcome basket with fruit, koozies, and a frisbee). It was a nice a relaxing vacation and Clark and Paula helped every step of the way from booking to activities to restaurant recommendations. Everyone in town seemed to know who they were and were happy when we told them we came from Jungle Creek. My girlfriend and I would definitely recommend this place to anyone heading to Costa Rica looking for a relaxing trip. If you are staying nearby to Quepos and Manuel Antonio, you don't even need a car. The bus stop was a 2 minute walk and very easy to use to get into town. Buses were nicer than our buses in San Francisco as well! All in all, this was everything as advertised and my girlfriend and I would 100% stay there again!
We had a great stay at the jungle villa. The people were very friendly and helpful.
It was a perfect place to go to the nationalpark.
Paula and Clark are fantastic! Very friendly and helpful. They even recommend a great restaurant for us. The place is very charming and very peaceful. Definitely enjoyed my stay.
The place was great!, Clark and Paula were very kind persons always had a smile for us and helped us with everything we needed, the place is great, very neer of the beach and the national park, 100% recommended

About the Host, Clark And Paula
Hi, we are a Canadian couple living the dream!! We thought of this as a pipe dream that we couldn’t really do....Turns out we can!! After a holiday touring Costa Rica we fell in love with Manuel Antonio and in particular, Jungle Creek! We love the service, attitude and atmospheres created by Jackie (previous Manager) and want to not only continue, but build on for that truly “Home away from Home Vacation” that we experienced and now live!! We both grew up on the prairies in Saskatchewan, Canada and needless to say, we are not going to miss shoveling the sidewalk and scraping the ice off our windsheilds!
Together we have 6 children who range in age from 24-36 and also 5 grandchildren and love when they visit!!
We want to welcome all new and past visitors to our beautiful home in Manuel Antonio Costa Rica.
Come as guests...leave as friends!!!
