Interaction with guests
I don't live on site but will be there to let you in. I do need to know within an hour of the time you will be arriving and don't usually receive guests at night.
We are 600 meters before the National Park. It is a short walk to the beach by a path next door. Everything is pretty much within walking distance.
Everything is pretty much within walking distance but if you wish to to go out at night or go to downtown Quepos there is excellent bus service which stops right in front of the building. Taxis are plentiful and not very costly. We have off street but not security parking.

I discover Manuel Antonio 41 years ago after graduating the University of California in Berkeley. Don Melton and myself first did a research project in the National Park and adjoining beaches and decided to make Punta Quepos our home. Don was the local historian and gave educational talks for many groups including National Geografic. We were among the founders of the first Chamber of Tourism in Manue Antonio, founders of ASCONA (Quepos first conservation organization), and have continued to be active in civic and conservations groups to date. I am currently working with a group to establish an animal shelter here in our area. We worked for many years on the problem of drownings (see page 7). I ran my gift shop LA BUENA NOTA for many years and because of my extensive knowledge of Costa Rica, I can answer most questions about our area and some advice about other tourist destinations in Costa Rica.
