Manuel Antonio apartment description

Well-appointed apartment in natural rainforest setting where monkeys can be seen almost everyday on the balcony of the apt. and around the pool area. View of the ocean and a short walk to one of the most spectacular beaches in the world. Located on the central pacific coast of Costa Rica. We can set you up with extraordinary breathtaking tours, ie: river-rafting, canopy zip lines, waterfall repelling, surfing and fishing. It's all here. We have the flora and fauna of paradise.


Nearby National Park: Manuel Antonio National Park is a gem among Costa Rica's nature reserves and one of the most popular tourist destinations in Costa Rica. A lush blanket of tropical green spills headlong onto several hidden and incredibly beautiful, jungle-lined beaches. There are White Faced Monkeys within this magnificent dream-scape. You may catch glimpse of whimsical monkeys, loud and colorful parrots, giant toucans, three-toed sloths, and a whole host of rare plant and animal species that inspire and overwhelm the senses. The birding opportunities are nothing short of fantastic with more than 350 species spotted in the park's small boundaries. Easy walking trails take in sweeping vistas of Costa Rica's dramatic coastline and meander through primary rainforest with over 300 species of trees.

Punta Serrucho in Manuel Antonio National Park

Secluded beaches and unworldly vistas create a special sanctuary to rest the soul. One can sit quietly, shrouded in magnificence.

More about Quepos: Tourism is now the area's leading employer as Quepos evolves from its banana growing roots into a premier holiday destination. After the demise of the Quepoa Indians in the late 1800's, vast banana plantations were developed throughout the region. Bananas were shipped to world markets across the docks that now service the sport-fishing fleet. In the 1980's bananas lost out to heartier African palms and their high quality palm oil. As Quepos diminished in importance as a banana port, it renewed itself as an ecotourism and sport-fishing destination. World travelers are discovering the area, with many visitors purchasing homes and returning each year to enjoy the relaxing village lifestyle and natural beauty of nearby Manuel Antonio.

                      Car: Not Necessary

                      Puerto Quepos drapes itself across a tropical inlet surrounded by primary rainforest. The village center is a delightful six-block square of restaurants, bars, hotels, bakeries, art galleries and gift shops, all fronted by the main beach and sport-fishing fleet. Quepos is growing quickly yet maintains many of its sleepy and humble beginnings.

                      Quepeños are great celebrators of life and seem to make dancing in the streets a local pastime. The high season runs through the drier months of December to April and explodes during the Festival del Mar, a month long party held each February that features concerts, sporting events, parades and a street carnival with dancers from across the country. Quepos fills to the brim with families, surfers, backpackers, ecotourists, blissed-out scientists and gay jet-setters, all as colorful and intriguing as the flora and fauna surrounding the village. The friendly locals take it all in stride, going out of their way to make sure you have a good time.

                      Other Activities: River Rafting, Canopy Zip Lines, Waterfall Repelling

                       

                      Manager info

                      About: I have been living in Costa Rica for twenty years now and I am a wildlife artist and did some rain forest tour guiding for a while. I lived in a remote part of the rain forest for twelve years before building my apartments here at the beach near the national park.

                      Why Manuel Antonio:
                      This place is only 8 years old and the location is so perfect because when you are at the beach you usually have quite a walk to get back up the hill to where most of the hotels and rentals are located, but we are situated between the main part of Manuel Antonio with all the restaurants. shopping and the beach. So less walking because you are staying between the two and all the while living on the edge of a jungle with all the monkeys that pass almost daily and stop to visit us here by the pool.

                      The Unique Benefits at this Apartment:
                      A small quaint operation that makes you feel relaxed and comfortable for an enjoyable vacation.
