In Monteverde, there is a heated pool, free wifi, and your TV comes complete with cable and DVD rentals. In Manuel Antonio, your air conditioned room includes Cable TV and a private balcony . All locations include breakfast everyday.

The unspoiled Monteverde cloud forest, the majestic Arenal Volcano, the beautiful beaches exuberent wildlife of the Manuel Antonio National Park, and the exciting nightlife of San Jose. These are the famous locations that you have heard about. We put you in the middle of all of it. Why pay more?

In Monteverde, you are within walking distance of the tiny little town of Santa Elena, the commercial hub of the area. In Manuel Antonio, your secluded hotel is a private and quiet.
UPGRADES AVAILABLE at great rates. These are all Standard rooms, and great values. We are sure you will be comfortable. However, you may upgrade to a Jr. Suite in San Jose and Arenal. Or you may upgrade to a Suite at Manuel Antonio. We will help you figure out what best suits your needs.
