How to arrive
We are a 12-minute walk away from the Quepos bus station. Follow the road to the Manuel Antonio national park: our hostel is on the left-hand side, 150 meters from Raindrop Spa.
From San José
The buses leave from Tracopa station: Avenida 10, Plaza Viquez. There are buses that go directly to Manuel Antonio (3,5 hours) and to Quepos with numerous stops (5 hours) – the price is the same. You can check the timetables and prices on the bus company’s website.
The Manuel Antonio national park is located a 15-minute drive away from the hostel. It is the most popular national park in the whole country – and no wonder, where else could you see rainforest meet the turquoise water of the Pacific? Manuel Antonio is home to an abundance of wildlife, such as endangered squirrel monkeys and sloths. You can take a local bus straight from our doorstep or go by taxi or rental car.
In addition to the national park, Manuel Antonio and Quepos offer an endless selection of activities. You can relax on the main beach of Manuel Antonio or take a short hike in the jungle in the search of your own hidden beach. Whitewater rafting, parasailing and surfing will keep all adrenaline junkies satisfied. And if you’ve always wanted to learn how to surf, this is the right place for that! Beginner-friendly waves and professional instructors will get you started in the best possible way. Feel free to ask us more about the activities in the area, and check out our tour options, too.
