Manuel Antonio is the jewel of Costa Rica’s Pacific coast, and the only destination where you’ll find a wealth of activities, natural beauty, restaurants, shopping and a national park filled with wildlife—all in one area. Manuel Antonio national park is also Costa Rica’s best national park: In 2011, Forbes magazine named it as one of the 12 most beautiful national parks in the world!
Costa Rica tops list of 'happiest' nations Story Highlights
•Costa Rica beats out Dominican Republic as 'happiest' place in world
•Independent British group claims Costa Ricans have world's highest life satisfaction
•Central American nation also praised for its environmental efforts
(CNN) -- Forget Disneyland! Costa Rica is the happiest place in the world, according to an independent research group in Britain with the goal of building a new economy, 'centered on people and the environment.'
Costa Rica is known for its lush rain forests and pristine beaches.
In a report released Saturday, the group ranks nations using the 'Happy Planet Index,' which seeks countries with the most content people.
'Costa Ricans report the highest life satisfaction in the world and have the second-highest average life expectancy of the new world (second to Canada),' the organization said in a statement.
They 'also have an ecological footprint that means that the country only narrowly fails to achieve the goal of ... consuming its fair share of the Earth's natural resources.'
The Central American country, tucked between Nicaragua and Panama, touts its lush rain forests and pristine beaches.
This year's survey, which looked at 143 countries, featured Latin American nations in nine of the Top 10 spots.
The runner-up was the Dominican Republic, followed by Jamaica, Guatemala and Vietnam.
Most developed nations lagged in the study.
While Britain ranked 74th, the United States snagged the 114th spot, because of its hefty consumption and massive ecological footprint.
The United States was greener and happier 20 years ago than it is today, the report said.
Keywords: Large ,Private 5 story home with 3-kingsize bedrooms . Ocean view, Beach within walking distance.

Costa Rica's Travel Deals
Costa Rica is more affordable than ever thanks to low airfare and hotels catering to discerning, cost-conscious travelers by offering unprecedented discounts and specials.
Not only do round trip flights to Costa Rica cost less than $300 from more than five major U.S. airports, the country's current inflation rates have the U.S. dollar value reaching its highest point in years.
This Central American destination, which is closer than Europe and Hawaii, safer than Mexico and Jamaica and packed full of natural wonders, just may be the perfect summer vacation destination for the frugal traveler.
The U.S. summer corresponds with Costa Rica's green season, or low season as it is known in the tourism industry. Considering the current economic situation and the natural decrease in occupancy during these months, it is no surprise that local Costa Rica hotels are offering up amazing incentives to stay competitive and fill their rooms. The only catch is, some digging might be required to find them. YOU HAVE FOUND THE ALTIMATE DEAL AT PURA PAZ. YOU WILL BE AMAZED AT WHAT YOU GET FOR YOUR MONEY. DON'T WAIT, BOOKINGS ARE GOING FAST. GET YOUR DATES NOW!!!! WE ARE BOOKING FOR 2014-2015 RIGHT NOW. SNOOZE YOU LOSE!! We also have our 60 ft sportfishing, crusing, diving boat available for charter. This is luxury unmatched. We offer discounts for our house guests.
Dear Ken and Kim, thank you so much for allowing us into your home, Casa Pura Paz is named perfectly. These 5 days Betsy and I spent with you were absolutely the most relaxing least stressful days for us in year's. For anyone considering visiting the Manuel Antonio area, I would strongly recommend
Pura Paz! Every aspect of my visit exceeded expectations. The house was exactly as it looked online, except it looks 10 times better in person. You can be as active as you want to be or just stare at the view off the deck all day. The national park is a great outing, but you will see all the wildlife right off the porch!The scenery of the surrounding area is nothing short of spectacular, there are too many outstanding restaurants to name and all of them are minutes from the house. One of the many highlights of our visit was the day trip with Jose, having a casual lunch on his farm provided a real glimpse into the culture of Costa Rica. We will be repeat visitors!
Thank you again.
My husband and I came here with our sons (19 and 14) and my 70 year old father. We all left with a very favorable impression of this area of Costa Rica, its people, and a true fondness for the owners (Kim and Ken), their house manager (José), and housekeeper (Shirley sp.?).
The house is truly amazing, with a very comfortable layout, incredible view, and access to all the wildlife, activities, and tranquility one could hope for. Ken and Kim walked a beautiful line between being accessible and helpful when needed, while respecting our privacy and letting us enjoy our family time together. I only wish that we would have had more time to visit with these truly generous and kind people.
As many have mentioned before, José's tour is incredible, and provided a great deal of entertainment for all of us. We also spent a day on the Nelsons' beautiful boat, where we caught (and released) beautiful sailfish and dined on Giovanni's wonderful cooking. The entire crew was professional, kind, and made the day aboard another highlight of our stay.
We hope to come stay in this beautiful home again! In my opinion, you could not find a better place to stay while in CR.
Being on a 60ft yacht and staying at this beautiful home was the most exciting time for us! The yacht is the Boomerang which was big and comfortable and parked in the beautiful Marina Pez Vela! The chef Giovanni and crew made sure we had a very special trip. The home was big and comfortable and the view was so big and beautiful you felt like you could reach out and touch it! All day you could hear the ocean while relaxing and feeding the monkeys! We also loved the 10 minute walk to the secluded beach through a peaceful forest. Toucans, two types of sloths, Macaws, horses, 3 kinds of monkeys.... Just a real paradise! Ken was so helpful with arranging our tours and giving us local knowledge which took all the stress out. Housekeeping was so helpful we were just plain spoiled.
We will tell all our family and friends to choose this safe well run and perfectly situated home in the trees! Thank you for a trip we will never forget!
This was by far one our best vacations ever so where do I start. The home and view are breathtakingly beautiful. Ken and Kim the owners were very accommodating, knowledgeable and helpful!!
Ken helped us book a half day trip thru a Zipline Company that I would highly recommend. He made the arrangements for the company to pick us up at the house. My family and I had an amazing time. The staff was very professional and at the end of the trip my daughter left her camera on the shuttle bus. When we realized it later that day we asked Ken if he could help us to try and locate the bus and camera. We left for the beach for the remainder of the day and when we returned that evening Ken had safely returned our camera! “WOW”
Ken also helped us book a sushi chef “Chef Ray” for an evening of wonderful Sushi. “Chef Ray” and his staff came to the house, prepared delicious miso soup, salads and fresh sushi. All of this was topped off with fried ice cream for dessert. Afterwards the staff completely cleaned the kitchen, cookware and all utensils. My wife was in heaven
Jose the house manager is someone we wanted to bring back to the states with us. My family still talks about him and we extended an “anytime you want to visit the U.S. you have a place to stay with us” invitation. Jose has a Mangrove tour that he offers and we took advantage of it. This is another half day trip that I would highly recommend. It is so much more than just a mangrove tour. Jose was born in the area and is very familiar with the wildlife as well as the flora and fauna. It was fun and educational at the same time.
Did I mention the monkeys?? At home we have a hard time getting the kids out of bed on their days off before 9 am. On this trip they were up between 5:30 and 6:00 a.m. every morning.. why? Because of the monkeys that would literally come and eat out of their hands each day (buy bananas). One morning it may be the small Squirrel monkeys that show up and the next morning Capuchins or Howlers.
We will definitely be back and we would highly recommend Manuel Antonio to any of our family and friends as well as this wonderful house and property that Ken and Kim shared with us.
We stayed at this GORGEOUS home for a week and what a pleasure it was !!!!!! What a Tropical Destination of choice !
The photos do NOT do justice for the house and location ! We saw a wide variety of birds and animals and a troop of monkeys coming every afternoon to the house ....... Omg!!!! I was in PARADISE!!
I will just say it was just perfect!
Thank you Ken for helping us organize our trip . My teenage boys had a awesome time as well ! We did a zip line very very organized and very good food.
And there's Jose the grounds keeper what a awesome man he is ! He took us on a mangrove tour that was amazing ! After that we ended up eating lunch in a Costa Rican home/farm with animals GALOR ! WOW!!!
What good food that was!
And then the day before we left we went on Kens boat with 4 crow members ... I really don't know what to say about this experience ...... My husband and my boys did some fishing ..they absolutely loved it ....we "only" cought 250-300lb grouper and snapper ....and did I mention the chef on the boat? The food that he made for us was EXCELLENT!!!
I just don't know what was are "High Light " for this vacation........
But I think I know .........
It was Ken and Kim that made a MEMORABLE vacation for us ! They took care of everything !!
I SALUTE YOU BOTH !!!!! 👍
Relaxing, Beautiful, Tranquillo, Pura Vida, and Shangri-la are the first words to come to mind during our week long stay at this magnificent home. We truly could not have stayed anywhere better... and here's why. For starters, Kim/Ken. They are so accommodating, making sure you have everything you need and are comfortable. They are simply lovely and genuine people... My 19 year old twin boys were fortunate enough to ride one of Kim's horses and they both stated it was one of their favorites memories of the trip.. so spiritual.. Jose - you can never get enough of Jose. What a treasure he is. And as all of the reviews state - DO NOT MISS his mangrove tour. This is a truly one-of-a-kind trip and one that most visitors to Costa Rica would never be fortunate enough to experience... please, please put this on your agenda. The house - our family could have easily have spent the entire week rocking away on the deck... listening to the sounds of the ocean, birds, monkeys, rain (LOVED the rain at night) and all the other sounds of being in the jungle. This is where were truly were swept away in Costa Rica. The house is inviting, relaxing and in the perfect location. The wildlife - oh, where to begin. First, make sure you have bananas always available. The Titi monkeys will eat out of your hand, but be careful! If you leave any bananas unattened, they will steal them.. (it is rather cute). A sloth made himself at home for two days in the tree right in front of the deck.. they really are so cute and the photo ops are great... you will see beautiful birds, toucans, parrots, butterflies, and friendly little lizards that we affectionally named Fredricko and Gordon (as in Gordon Gecko from Wallstreet). After about a week they were so used to us, they came right up to the pool and watched us... I could go on and on... but suffice it to say... this place should not be missed... we would go back in a hearbeat... please go, enjoy, relax and say hello to Kim and Ken... you have my word, you will be happy you did!
