    I was really skeptical about staying at this hotel because a lot of glowing reviews came from people that have only reviewed this one property. I know some hotels get their friends to write them good reviews to bump their stats so I was a little on the fence. I dedided to try it anyway and I'm glad that I did because the price was right, the room was comfortable and the distance to the park entrance & the beach were wonderful. The service wasn't spectacular, not bad, just low key. Sometimes we'd stand at the front desk looking for some help and there would be no one around, then another guest told us that they lived upstairs and we needed to ring a bell by their door to get their help. It would have been nice to know this when we checked in. Sometimes we found that the language barrier was an issue, but that's partly our fault for not practicing our Espanol before going on our trip. At some point in our trip I lost my bank card and they let me into their house to use their phone to call my bank, which I found very helpful. The property was safe, some reviewer commented that it's down a sketchy back alley, but I would disagree about the sketchy part. Yes, it's just off the road, down an alley, but we didn't feel unsafe for one second. It was lit and you needed a key card to access the building. Manuel Antonio was probably our least favorite destination because the prices are so high and it's really touristy, but if you are coming here and you're on a budget, Villa Prats is a good option. Just don't expect a 5 star hotel.

    ... Black mangroves" "Damas Island" and random animal names is about all he can say. Ugh, I really would've liked to learn something. What a scam. We go down a narrow channel into the mangroves and he starts calling to the monkeys. "He is literally saying come here", Jamie says. Like a monkey will listen to that ****. Much to disbelief, it works. We pull up the shore and the monkeys are cautiously working their way down the trees. We hold fruit ...

    ... grounds and try to see as much wildlife as possible. As it would turn out, I would see just about all of the wildlife throughout my entire trip in the first day of Manuel Antonio, seeing both spider and howler monkeys, as well as two- and three-toed sloths. The park was absolutely gorgeous and getting off some of the busy trails I found myself alone in a park filled with monkeys all around me. I stopped at ...

    ... translates into Fatal Attraction but I’ve never seen the movie in English. It is SUCH a good way to learn Spanish! It was all about bank robberies and it was funny to hear a super deep Mexican Spanish come out of Ben Affleck's mouth. The girl they had dubbing the femaie actress was possibly the WORST crier I've ever heard in my life... It finished at 11:30 and then Bambi decided he wanted to go out. We left and went to find some of his friends, keeping ...

    ... monkeys scampered down to look us over.

    We find the water delightful, especially after the fairly hot walk to the beach. John and I have our swim goggles so can see if there is anything under the water. It is a beautiful setting and the water temp is 87 degrees.....feels wonderful as we float, swim, and thoroughly enjoy ourselves. We come out of the water for a bit and find iguanas on the beach and rocks....pretty neat. We did see some schools of ...

    ... The boat was covered about half way with an awning of sorts, the rest of us were in the sunshine. Soon the watercraft was skidding across navy blue water at quite a clip, engines roaring, and the crew of 3, all with their ear buds secure. The luggage had been stowed under the bench seats, and one frightened soul donned a life jacket. All was going well until we hit something in the water, and the engines came to an immediate stop. There we were, all 25 of ...
