My second visit here and the verdict is...STILL AWESOME! From the incredible views at the home that overlook the beach to the warmth of the locals, you'll be bathed with a sense of serenity. I had a chance to stay with 11 other friends and we made the most of it. We soaked up the local excursions (e.g. parasailing, a...

If you hate a beautiful house with spectacular views & beaches and don't want to have an amazing vacation, then this place is not for you. The rooftop has the best panoramic view of Manuel Antonio Beach. Along with the beautiful view, the rooftop also has top notch entertainment; the infinity pool in the middle (perfect place to relax), bar...

Where do I begin? We booked this house on the renderings because the house had not been built. We were looking for a house to accommodate a large group for our wedding. The views of the ocean sold us on Vista Hermosa. It was a great choice. If I had dreamed of the perfect wedding week...I couldn't even come close...

Awesome to hear that after a long frustrating travel day, you arrived and completely forgot about it. Congratulations on your wedding. We hope that...

The beach town of Manuel Antonio is a wonderful seaside town located on the Pacific side and is just a 2.5 hour Drive from Costa Rica’s San Jose International Airport.

Best Time To Drive:

The ideal time to drive into Manuel Antonio is during the day. It’s a wonderful way for everyone to see the countryside. A great stop to use the restroom, stretch and see your first real taste of Costa Rican wildlife is the Rio Tarcoles bridge a.k.a. The Croc Bridge. Everyone gets a kick out of it. There are several great restaurants around the halfway point on the way to Vista Hermosa Estate.
