You have access to 1 a Queen size bed. You will enjoy kitchen, a full bathroom, and a terrace with a view of the jungle.

The apartment features Wi-Fi and a washer/dryer for your convenience.

Just outside the entrance to the Pura Vida Valley, you have access to a bus stop that for less than $0.50 can drive you to the center of Manual Antonio, to the town of Quepos, or to the beach. (All within 15 mns).

You can also reach the center of town or the beach on foot. Many taxis are also available for the average price of $5. Less than 3 km away, there is a full gym less where you will receive a friendly welcome.

Please note that Quepos/Manuel Antonio is a very popular tourist destination with many bars and lively restaurants along the main road, creating an energetic evening atmosphere. After enjoying our great bars and restaurants, many visitors find it preferable to have accommodations a little removed from the nightlife on the main road. The villa Mar y Sol guarantees you calm and serenity day and night during your stay.

The Province of Puntarenas region

Manuel Antonio contains a charming combination of rain forest, beaches and coral reefs. This beaches are the most beautiful in the country, lined with lush forest, and the snorkeling is excellent too. The forest is home for sloths, iguanas, the rare and adorable squirrel monkeys and millions of colorful little crabs. And the trail that winds around Punta Catedral affords some spectacular views. The park is easy to reach, south of the town of Quepos, and is near a good selection of hotels and restaurants.

Visiting the park, one is treated to an abundant diversity of wildlife. Cathedral Point, with its forest topped cliffs was once an island, but is now connected to the coast by a thin strip of island. This land bridge now forms the spine separating the parks two most popular beaches, Playa Espadilla Sur and Playa Manuel Antonio. The southern facing beach, Playa Manuel Antonio, is a picturesque half mile long, white sand crescent bisecting deep green foliage to one side and a private, secluded cove to the other.

Standing with your feet dug into the sand and watching the wave crash against the rocks on either side of the lagoon, it is easy to believe that you are a thousand miles from anywhere.

Manuel Antonio National Park

The area was once dependent on banana plantations which used to line the surrounding area. After disease infiltrated the harvest, interest transferred to African Palms as the prominent crop. Now, tourism has deemed itself the major economic factor, contributing to just about everything in the area.

Quepos lures in many tourists for its fantastic sportfishing. In fact, some have come solely to participate in this world class experience and have never left. The main attraction here is marlin fishing, especially during the months of December to April. Many outfitters will be more than happy to accompany eager anglers on the high seas for an unforgettable outing.

Besides sportfishing, many other activities are available. Visiting the nearby Butterfly Botanical Gardens is sure to impress as there are informative exhibits, night walks and a stunning collection of butterflies, all housed in one incredible location. For some wildlife viewing that's a little more untamed, check out the Damas Estuary. Exploring this maze of wetlands by boat or by kayak is the only way to see crocodiles, monkeys, herons, raccoons and more. For something a bit more equestrian, horseback riding excursions are available, so don't forget your spurs!

Depending on the time of year, white-water rafting on the Naranjo River can reach up to class IV in intensity, but most who experience this river would rate it a ten out of ten. North of Quepos are the Damas Caves, a surreal experience for anyone brave enough to crawl and hike between stalagmites and stalactites witnessing bats and insects close up.

A stay in Quepos is sure to entertain as the nightlife and activities in the area are a must for any vacation. A wide range of accommodations are readily available for all travelers. Transportation to Manuel Antonio is uncomplicated and a must for anyone who embarks on a vacation to the Central Pacific.
