Travel Blogs from Manuel Antonio National Park
... Tours (the same folks who did the catamaran tour yesterday). They took us the Manuel Antonio National Park, which is Costa Rica's smallest, but most diverse, national park. If we did this first on our trip, we might have been really thrilled with it, but at this point of our trip, seeing a few more sloths, lizards and toucans wasn't all that. I guess we're spoiled now, huh?
But, nearing the end of the hike, we did get really close to ...
... and so he was putting a label close to the snake to show the danger. I have no idea how the snake stays near the sign. It must be akin to the deer crossing signs in Banff where the deer just naturally know where to cross! Dago continued to search for frogs for Caleb. We must have looked for close to an hour in this last ditch effort before we left the park. I found a toad - apparently ...
In Manual Antonio my family and I went to the beach.
When we were at the beach we saw an iguana. The waves were big too.
In Rain maker park it was a long hike. We saw rain frogs, lots of ants, a toad,
a viper, zebra frogs, lots of birds. There were even lots of bridges that went over water falls and I ...
... the view scope he positions and we could see this two toed sloth like it was a couple feet in front of us- completely cool. It is then that we realize we might not be able to spot very much wildlife on our own after all. I try not to act very interested and I try again to get him to go to $25 with no luck so we agree on $30pp and get ready to go. Little did we know that this would turn out to be the best decision we could have made.
... here but you can and there are bathrooms right before the beach. From here we followed the “exit” signs. I highly recommend if you want some privacy then you just bypass that first big beach where everyone is and follow signs to the exit where you will p*********** stretch of fantastic beach. The trail along the beach to exit is very peaceful and easy to hike and much cooler with a nice breeze off the water. It started to get sunny ...

Historical Traveler Reviews Hotel Mango Moon Manuel Antonio National Park
When staying at Mango Moon, you feel like you are a guest in the home of friends...friends who just happen to have a beautiful home overlooking the jungle and ocean beyond. Unlike some other properties in Manuel Antonio, you do not have to hike down a mountain to get to your room---the property is situated on a side street off the main road--with the well appointed rooms just a few steps away from the large, open balcony. We stayed in a two bedroom suite with an ocean view. Although the bedrooms were not large, they had all the comforts of a nice hotel--air conditioning, spotless, nicely furnished rooms, with comfortable mattresses and televisions...all this, without hotel crowds, noise, or impersonal service. Jeff, the owner, was very friendly and helped with planning tours, recommending local guides, and restaurants. I must say-all his suggestions were much better than we would have found on our own. Breakfast is included with the room...which was a full, buffet breakfast (not the "continental" excuse for dry toast and coffee served at some places)...but what made breakfast truly memorable was sitting on the balcony each morning, enjoying a cup of coffee as the troops of monkeys greeted us. What a way to start the day!
My wife and I stayed in Mango Moon for 4 days, after spending 4 days in Tulemar Bungalows. Before our Costa Rica trip we spend hours and hours on internet trying to figure out exactly where to stay in Manuel Antonio. It paid of!!! Tulemar and Mango Moon, in our opinion (and after visiting other hotels in area) are two top choices in Manuel Antonio. In this review I'll focus on Mango Moon.
We stayed at queen suite room which has a breathtaking view and private balcony with hammock. Clean and comfortable, has 2 rooms , 1 room with a queen size bed and living room with 2 full beds, decorated tastily in earthy colors with lots of wood and bamboo and cathedral ceilings.
We recently got engaged at the Mango Moon. Before I booked the room, I emailed Joni, the owner. On our second night, Joni and Jeff (who plays guitar), suprised us with a candelight lobster dinner by the pool that they catered from a local restaurant. Jeff serenaded my Bride to be with two songs that brought her to tears.
Mangomoon was wonderful
The Mangomoon is a small hotel (maybe eight-10 rooms) and is a bed and breakfast. Spent 2 nights there in Jan. 05. The entire place is classy! Impeccably clean, lovely rooms, and the most spectacular view of the sunset while floating in the disappearing edge pool. Breakfast was custom cooked and delicious and you could watch the monkeys playing in the trees from the breakfast deck. The other couples we met there were so friendly and adventuresome. We had plenty of hot water and very comfortable beds with luxurious pillows and robes. Nice owners, too! Worth the price!
Magnificent, majestic & mind-blowing. All in all plain out impressive. I felt privileged to stay at the Mango Moon!
This place is Paradise.......period.
Just returned from a week at the Mango Moon. It is a small, well-run
beautiful gem with a view and sunsets to die for. Jeff and Joni make you feel extra special and have built a fabulous establishment of which they should be very proud. The rooms are spacious, exceptionally clean and a good value for your $. Daily visits by squirrel monkeys and white-faced monkeys add to the charm. We can't wait to return.
Awsome location, great service
I just returned from staying at the Mango Moon in Manuel Antonio and cannot stop talking about going back to stay again. Having visited several other hotels during my stay, Mango Moon had the best location, most privacy and the owners and staff couldnt have been more friendly and helpful. The breakfast was awesome and the rooms were extremely nice and clean. I highly recommend anyone vistiting Manuel Antonio to stay at the Mango Moon.
As an American couple that has lived on small island (third world) in the Caribbean for eight years, as well as having extensive travel experience to other countries, we were both pleased and quite impressed with the owners' (Joni, Jeff, Jessica, Jeff, Jr. & Cutter) attention to detail and the quality of personal service provided to us as guests. Not to mention, their extensive recommendations (based on their personal experience and trial) that completely made our trip effortless and the most amazing week we could have asked for- from where to dine, to National Park guides, spas, horseback riding, canopy tours, domestic flights and taxi drivers, etc. Mango Moon was exactly what we were interested in and more than we could have hoped for from initial booking and beyond our stay at Mango Moon (while still in Quepos) their service was above and beyond duty.
Nice setting but...
Great location, friendly owner, good breakfast...however, both days we stayed there the water ran out mid-shower. Not the best feeling when you're covered in soap, sweat, sand, suntan lotion, insect repellent, etc, and you have 12 hours of travel ahead of you. Owner was apologetic and offered us a refund for one night. We never received the refund, despite promises that we would and despite several reminders from us. Also note that the main floor room is not very private and is susceptible to noise from the open terrace and kitchen.
