Amazing place. Great ambience, quaint rooms and great dorm room. Sauna tub for after your tough hike on Chirripo. Friendly owners and staff - willing to go above and beyond to help you. Very concerned about the environment - great focus on reducing, reusing and recycling. Nice gazebo with hammocks - a great place to spend a few hours reading, listening to the wind, birds and chimes. Beautifully constructed out of stone, into the side of a hill - artsy touches, windows made of coloured glass bottles, murals on the wall, broken cups, plates, porcelain used as tiling in bathrooms. Early quiet time - ideal for hikers who need to get up early.

I asked mike if he heard a chicken and he said no, but When we were almost at Dominical mike spotted a chicken poke it's head up out of this lady's shoulder bag! Her husband had ...

... 2 types of monkeys, one that was a family complete with cute little baby monkeys. we saw some raccoons which went right up to this family and started grabbing at their bags hanging from their stroller almost toppling it over (dont worry - there wasn't a kid in it) the wife freaked out which made the whole scene even better. and on the way out we saw some deer! they were pretty small compared to the ones at home, but it was amazing how they weren't at all bothered ...

... are greeted by a Toucan, an iguana, and a whole troupe of spider monkeys that paraded within feet of our balcony as we are on the second floor and the tree canopy is on the side of our room. Oh, and on the drive here we stopped to view some scarlet macaws that we're flying overhead. So everyday we see species we have not seen before. I am amazed with the diversity here. So after checking in we caught a quick lunch at ...

... roasting!) and we caught the bus down to manuel antonio, the entrance to which is just a short walk from the beach, and the park itself has several beaches within it boundary.

We opted not to get a tour guide on recommendation from a guy we met at the hostel, and instead just move from group to group as we went through the park and just look at whatever their tour guide shows them! On the 45 minute walk through the ...
