  • On-site reserve. There is a program that takes care of nearby wildlife.
  • Adult-only ambiance. The hotel is mostly visited by adults, but minors over the age of 13 are allowed to stay.

What NOT to Expect

  • Isolation. The restaurant is open to everyone, so you might spot locals and other visitors during your stay.

An Eco-Friendly Option in Manuel Antonio

Offering 22 units, Gaia is a 5-star luxury boutique hotel provides an eco-friendly experience for couples or families with teenage children.

Each room features an LCD flat screen TV with cable, home entertainment center, natural wood, and stone floors, A/C, wireless telephone, safe, and a coffee station. Relax in your room while surrounded by the chirps of the many bird species in the area.

To make your stay even more comfortable, Gaia also offers complimentary on-site amenities. There is a shuttle service to the National Park and the nearby public beach.

Free WiFi is available in all guest rooms and public areas, and a complimentary guided tour is offered daily in their Nature Reserve at 3.30 p.m. except on Mondays. Their reintroduction program for Scarlet macaws has been particularly successful, so don’t miss out if you get the chance to experience it.

Another point to remember is that his hotel doesn’t allow children under the age of 13, so it’s a better spot for families with older children.

Your time here can either be relaxing or full of activities, so your options are not limited. Take advantage of their other facilities, like a 3-tiered infinity pool, swim-up bar, fully equipped spa, fitness center, and a business center with technological support.
