The resort and staff are quite nice--nothing elaborate, but the cabanas are spacious and clean. The food at the restaurant is pretty good as well. They also have some lovely trails onto the jungle, where we even saw squirrel monkeys. The location, while just off the highway, is actually quieter than staying in bustling Quepos. I would have given five stars, but for the presence of a group of your Costa Ricans down for the weekend, who spent 24/7 drunk by the pool and making a racket all night. We were luckily able to sleep, but some of our neighbors could not. The management needs to be on top of this issue, because otherwise this is a good place to stay when visiting Manuel Antonio.

So today we went back to the park with mom and hiked again. The view was even better this time because it was less cloudy, but it was also ten times as hot. The humidity in the rain forest was so intense I felt like I was swimming, not hiking. We did get some pretty cool pictures out of the trip though. Cathedral point was at the top of the cliff and ...

We walked round a mini headland and then some beach time. The sea was warm and calm and the beach good to lounge on, it wasnt very busy either. After an hour or so we headed back along the main trail to catch the bus to Quepos.
We are glad we chose to stay in Quepos as we had stuff around, and were not relying on ...
... drug dealing but we weren't approached for anything. The election in Costa Rica was that day and when it was over parades of people in their cars waiving yellow and red flags (I am assuming a party flag) were honking horns making loops around the tiny city, it was crazy to watch!
The next morning was Christine's birthday and we got ourselves a 4 wheel drive Hyundai SUV and drove up to the Arenal observatory, A private resort near the volcano. Now the volcano ...
Today we woke up early and got breakfast down the street at a cute little cafe with amazing food and coffee. We both got eggs with rice and beans and corn tortillas. I got an amazing iced latte. Then we headed back and were picked up by our bus for the Canopy Safari Zip line tour. There were about 20 people in our group/bus. The ride out to the zip lines was about 30-40 minutes and we were taken through the palm oil tree plantations and learned quite a bit ...
... van back to San Jose at 5 PM. It took us 3.5 hours. Had a final dinner with the Hamilton family and Cindy and headed to bed. It was warm and sunny all day.
