The country of Costa Rica is filled with stunning landscapes and amazing natural surroundings. There is something for every vacationer — from nature lovers to adventure seekers, from hikers to surfers, and from rainforest explorers to white water rafters.
Manuel Antonio stands out among the regions of Costa Rica for its green forests, beautiful beaches, vivid sunsets and its richness of native wildlife. The blue waters of the Pacific, the brilliance of the lush rainforest and the myriad of animals and flora found both in the National Park and throughout the area are the stuff of a dream vacation. A stay at Jungle Vista Boutique Hotel provides easy access to all the activities available in the area.
A tour through the Manuel Antonio National Park, one of Costa Rica’s most visited parks, is a must for every visitor. The park’s diverse animal life and flourishing vegetation are the reason Forbes Magazine has ranked it as one of the world’s most beautiful parks.
The four beaches located right in Manuel Antonio — Espadilla, Playita, Manuel Antonio and Escondido — are world famous for their white sand and refreshing waters. They are perfect for sunbathing and taking a relaxing dip as well as for adrenaline-rising water sports.

The beach in the Manuel Antonio National Park is known for its peaceful atmosphere and private setting, and is a great place to cool off after hiking through the park. Playa Biezans is the closest beach to Jungle Vista and offers chair and kayak rentals, as well as snacks, in a verdant setting.
Playa Dominical, about 40 kilometers away from Manuel Antonio, is very well-known to surfers and offers surfing lessons for beginners.
The Manuel Antonio/Quepos locale has two excellent rivers for white water rafting. The Naranjo and Savegre Rivers are great spots to spend a day on the water.
A hike to Punta Cathedral in the National Park provides an unforgettable experience with breathtaking views of the Pacific Ocean. There are several trails through the park that provide hikers with a chance to see sloths, lizards, ocelots, monarch butterflies, monkeys and more.
The network of gorgeous hiking trails at Los Altos Resort are also open to Jungle Vista Boutique Hotel guests.
Being surrounded by green and nature, while sitting comfortably enjoying a delicious cocktail is simply perfect! It is impossible not to feel relaxed and pampered, thanks to the attention of the staff who are aware of what you may need or just want.Got to see two sloths and feel like one at the sloth snack bar. I loved it!
"We stayed in the "Tucan" studio. This is a lovely little one bed apartment with a small kitchen and sitting area and private deck. We sat outside and watched white faced and howler monkeys. The pool area is a great place to have tropical cocktails and I must say they make them outstanding specially the Piña Colada"
"I led my first Yoga retreat to Manuel Antonio the first week of April and stay at Jungle Vista. I booked the entire complex- 5 apartments for 8 of us. It was PERFECT. I stayed in the pool house, the smallest unit and loved it" Will return for sure
