Frequently Asked Questions

How close is it to the beach?

There are three nearby beaches within a 10-minute driving distance in Manuel Antonio National Park and the public beaches of Manuel Antonio. Because of the geography of the area, there aren’t very many affordable homes that are on or walking distance to the beach.  All of our guests enjoy the proximity to town and to be honest, it is just a short drive to the beach.

Can I hire a chef?

We can provide you with a professional chef. Prices are the same for 2 to 10 people. After 10 people the cost is $10 per person extra. The cost of food is additional, but the chef will do the shopping and present you with receipts for reimbursement. Dining is designed to be family style as the chef prepares most everything fresh at the villa, so we kindly ask you to choose 1-2 appetizers, 1-2 entrees, 1-2 desserts, etc.  that everyone will share. Once you confirm the dates & meals you’d like to hire the chef for, I would collect a deposit and put you in contact directly with the chef so you can communicate regarding your menu choices.

Is there public transportation?

Manuel Antonio Estates is located on the edge of Quepos, walking distance to town and restaurants. From Quepos, there is about a 3-mile road that runs through the rainforest on a mountain down to the beach/park. Buses run every 15 minutes (50 cents) and the bus stop is right outside the front gate. Taxis are also available 24/7 for $5-$10 per trip, plus, all tours & activities include round trip transportation from MA Estates!

Is it safe?

Yes, Manuel Antonio Estates has 24-hour Security and is a gated community.

Is there air conditioning?

How does my phone work in Costa Rica?
