    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.

    ... hands and they come and snatch them and run a few paces up the branches. The guide gives Jamie some fruit and positions her in a way to get the monkey to climb onto her head or shoulders. He takes the bait. Jamie is ecstatic and I'm thinking "my turn, my turn". We switch spots and the guide starts calling for the monkey to come back. I'm looking at Jamie as something starts to fall from the trees making clink clink sounds in the boat. "What is ...

    ... every once and a while to relax and soak in the surroundings and cool off from the hiking. After a half day of hiking I was spent, so I went back to the hostel, showered, and decided to simply walk around the town and get some lunch at a local place called Café Milagro. Unsure what to do I just walked back to the hostel, sat back, and relaxed to watch the sunset. While sitting back there were a bunch of ...

    ... the way to this tiny little island.... I was whining and whimpering but I did it the whole entire way! I am fairly sure I look like the hulk....The she-hulk....

    When we arrived I wanted to collapse face first on the beach... My arms were like super super duper limp spaghetti. I squealed when I saw a little hermit crab at my feet and Bambi laughed and said they were "all" crabs... I said what do you mean "ALL", then looked and ...

    ... but no colorful fish....have to go to the Carribean side of Costa Rica. We did see some rushes of fish that seemed to race over the water and fly through the air...but no one got a picture. Also everyone was thrilled when brown pelicans flew over....just like home,,,ha! John explored over near the rocks and got pictures of a moray eel. When it was time to leave it was low tide so we can walk back on a path that runs along in the jungle but just inside from ...

    ... we just did nothing all day. After lunch we came back to the room and hung out, did a little packing but mostly relaxing, hanging out on the balcony. Before we knew it that view turned to sunset. Pretty but kind of sad, like the sun was setting on the most magnificent vacation ever!pretty soon darkness arrived, and so we headed to dinner and had a delicious last supper. Great food at this hotel but all ...
