From there, you have a frequent bus service (every 15 minutes, 60 cents/ride) to the beach and National Park Manuel Antonio. The drive takes about 10 minutes, also by car (parking along the beach or at the entrance of the NP)
Closest airport is San Jose (SJO), with several options for transportation to Quepos:
SANSA AND NATURE AIR are the two local airlines, taking you to Quepos or back to San Jose, the flight is 25 minutes, the ticket cost $ 75.-/pax one way. Both airlines can be found in the web and tickets can be easy purchased online.

Our time in the treehouse was amazing! It is the perfect place to stay if you're headed into Manuel Antonio. Thomas couldn't have been more accommodating and really helped get you into the spirit of Pura Vida! We will definitely be coming back here some day :)
The host was extremely helpful and courteous. The treehouse was more than any pictures could try to depict. It was clean and beautiful. We saw more wildlife from the tree house than the park at monuel Antonio. Highly recommended!
The Tree House was simply incredible. We were welcomed by Thomas when we arrived, who gave us every piece of information we'd ever need about the place and the town and was always around to help us whenever we needed.
The room itself was lovely, filled with all we could hope for (including delicious Costa Rican coffee that definitely helped us with getting up in the morning!).
The pool area was amazing and spent many an hour lounging on the hammocks reading with the sounds of nature all around.
And most importantly, the view off the balcony was breathtaking. While sitting there after lunch we were greeted by a huge group of Squirrel Monkeys, playing on the decking less than a meter away.
An unforgettable experience with one of the nicest hosts you're ever likely to meet. Don't miss out!
It was a fantastic experience staying in Thomas' treehouse in the rainforest. You live directly in the nature and you can see and experience several tropical animals. We were visited by a group of monkeys which were playing in the roof and on the porch just in front of us. The treehouse has everything you need, even a hot shower which I didn't expect. The pool is a great place to relax. Thomas I a relaxed person and you feel absolutely welcome. Thanks Thomas!
Awesome tree house! We felt in love with it right away! Great view and very quit! Exactly what you need for your last days of vacantion. We saw a sloth and a lot of squirrelmonkeys! We even watched the monkeys playing on the balkony, so great! The pool is just fantastic! Thanks for the good days!
Absolutely great experience staying at the tree house! It was really cool seeing all the animals and nature. Thomas was helpful in setting us up with a boat excursion which was a great time.
The Treehouse is everything you can imagine, and then some!
It's wild and comfortable at the same time. It is packed with all the comforts of home but located in the middle of 'the jungle'. We saw more monkeys from our deck than at the national park (by a long shot!)
Our experience in Costa Rica was made amazing by the Treehouse and by Thomas' hospitality and helpful tips.

About the Host, Thomas + Lili
Moved from Switzerland 16 years ago, just love it here! The people are "pura vida", life is so easy, the climate is very healthy! Very lucky to have purchased a big piece of property in the Playa Macha area, declared as green zone, where I offer the Tree House and Villa Malinche. It's almost like the National Park, lot's of wildlife and very peaceful, surrounded by lush rain forest!
My wife Lili is a licensed physic therapist, also with a great dedication for massage treatments, she can make you feel in heaven.... Don't miss an onsite treatment during your stay!
We are happy to share this relaxed jungle feeling on our property with the people we meet through Airbnb. Just lay back in the hammocks, taste the famous coffee and watch the monkeys fly by...
