Manuel Antonio Places to Stay

Several of Manuel Antonio's boutique hotels and resorts promise spectacular views and easy beach access; some hillside locations offer complimentary shuttle service to the beach.  Almost all hotels are close to a bus stop that will take you down to the beach for 65 cents.  For close encounters with local wildlife like monkeys and iguanas, stay at one of the smaller hotels close to downtown Manuel Antonio and the national park.
