Villas Oasis is perfectly located in the very center of Manuel Antonio, this is an excellent spot to experience a taste of the exciting Costa Rican culture. Close by we have the popular Manuel Antonio “outdoor food court”, there you will find a great selection of restaurants. Depending on your taste you will discover a selection of Mexican, Sushi, fish tacos, fried chicken, and traditional Costa Rican food.
Since each unit in Villas Oasis comes with a fully equipped kitchen our guests have the freedom to find well stocked supermarkets close by and prepare their own breakfast, lunch or dinner!
We are 1.5 miles (2.4 km) and about a 5-10 minutes drive to the main beach and the world famous Manuel Antonio National park. Most people like to take the public bus that runs every 20 minutes and picks up at a bus stop close to our property. The cost is 60 cents each way.
We are located on a beautiful hillside, so while it is possible to walk to the beach, the roads are narrow and Costa Rican drivers are not the most careful out there, so we don’t recommend walking.
Manuel Antonio is the central hub for some of the very best and most professional tour companies in Costa Rica. Zipline, whitewater rafting, yoga, surfing, sport fishing, the popular sunset cruise and much more.
Villas Oasis is proud to have a longstanding relationship with the very best tour companies in the area. Thanks to this, all of our guests enjoy the convenience of being picked up and dropped off right outside the property.
Due to our central location, most of our clients choose not to rent a car while staying at Villas Oasis, they tend to save their money for more fun activities :)
We have a public bus stop with busses running down to the beach and downtown Quepos every 20 minutes.
For those what might choose to rent a car, it it is not necessary to have a 4 wheel drive. In our area, most of our roads are in good condition all year round.
Other things to note
We built Villas Oasis with our own hands and you will see the personal touches everywhere on our property. We are proud of our little place and consistently land at the top of travel review websites.
We cater to families, couples and people who come to Costa Rica to enjoy the nature and fantastic parks and beaches of Manuel Antonio.
We have a zero tolerance drug policy.
Niclas, born in Sweden, felt at an early age the urge to explore the world. Traveling extensively in Europe prior to turning 20, he then took his backpack and left for Barbados and the Caribbean Islands, and continued on to Bali and Indonesia for months at a time. A few years later he got a job in the music industry, working for the legendary rock band Metallica, which made him move to the band's home base of San Francisco. Working closely with the band during their concert tours, introduced him to every part of the world; the perfect combination for his passion for Travel & Music. After 10 years of traveling all over the world, he decided to retire from touring and focus on family life. After a visit to Costa Rica, he felt Costa Rica was the perfect place to move to. "It almost felt like Sweden in that it was very safe, with wonderful people, a great place for children to grow up in. But unlike Sweden, there is no cold dark winter to endure." It became obvious that he had finally found his "endless summer", where he could surf everyday and enjoy the relaxed pace of life that the Costa Ricans are so famous for.
