About the neighbourhood
Nestled 1000 feet above Manual Antonio State Park in the Quepos area. It is located on the road leading to Naranjito and Via Nueva, in the direction of San Marcos. It is about 35 minutes to the beach.The property is surrounded by foothills and therefore about 5 to 10 degrees cooler than some of the more stifling areas below. A refreshing break after a hot day on the beach. It is on the Pacific Coast of Costa Rica with lovely white sand beaches and many activities nearby.
