Where to stay in Manuel Antonio

Limits on development keep options out of Manuel Antonio National Park itself. You will find a selection of accommodations just outside the park, near the entrance. The mainly mid-range options there typically offer swimming pools and complimentary breakfast, as well as convenient access to the nearby Playa Espadilla. For more luxurious options, consider the hotels and resorts around Playa Playitas. If you're after something more budget-friendly, stay in the township of Manuel Antonio.
