Manual Antonio was the first major ecotourism hub for tourists in Costa Rica with quaint hotels, hostels and boutique hotels with extravagant views. Manual Antonio is divided into two distinct areas, the town of Quepos where the Marina is located, this is where all of our Catamaran and Fishing tours depart from, also where grocery shopping and many local eateries and essentials are located.
Then we have the 7 km of road between Quepos and the touristy Manual Antonio where both sides of the road are lined with hotels, zip-lining, beaches, and vendors. This is often crowded and the hill leading into the main area of Manual Antonio is extremely steep and narrow (for those planning on walking everywhere).
The hills leading down into Manual Antonio lead way for absolutely stunning views of the blue pacific ocean dotted with tiny islands just in the distance.
