Car: Recommended

Secluded, yet located some 10 minutes away from Manuel Antonio Beaches and national Park, Villa Sonrisas offers proximity to restaurants, the town of Quepos and many activities. Not to be missed is Manuel Antonio National Park, arguably the country's most beautiful and protected coastal area. The National Park contains pristine white sand beaches, hidden coves ideal for snorkeling, trails through tropical forest filled with wild life and the landmark Punta Catedral, towering high above the deep blue pacific Ocean.
