Family Vacation

Manuel Antonio is Costa Rica’s most famous National Park and a great destination for families looking to experience the rainforest. It not only offers beach and ocean activities, but also a great variety of restaurants, nightlife, rainforest and beaches. White water rafting, canopy tours, ocean kayaking, mangrove and dolphin tours, night walks and hikes are just a few of the many outdoor activities offered in the area.


Located within eleven acres of rain forest, families are very likely to observe abundant wildlife such as white-faced capuchin monkeys, sloths and iguanas right from your room terrace. We offer family-friendly amenities including board games, boogie boards, delicious children’s menu options in both restaurants and tours and activities suitable for the whole family.  And with two pristine beaches just a few steps from your room, the whole family can enjoy a private day at the beach. Rooms and suites on the lower part of our property provide easy access to Playitas pool and beach and are best suited for children.
