Eco-Friendly Practices & Ocean Views
Proximity to nature is one of the hotel’s greatest attractions. The hotel is so committed to it that during Si Como No’s construction, only one tree was removed from the hillside.
This is why it’s possible to see sloths, playful monkeys, basilisk lizards, exotic birds like toucans, and more on the hotel’s grounds. The gardens teem with flowers as well. Sit back surrounded by the sounds of nature and admire the Pacific Ocean on the horizon.
In addition, the on-site wildlife refuge is great for wildlife enthusiasts who want to learn and see more species up close.
There are self-guided tours available to the butterfly botanical atrium, crocodile lagoon, and amphibian jungle. And don’t miss the popular after-dark tour! Simply cross the street to the other side of the property, and you’re ready to explore.
Si Como No’s practices have been certified by the Costa Rican Tourism Board with a Level 5 CST (Certificate of Sustainable Tourism), the highest level available.
Visit Manuel Antonio Beach
Since it is perched on the hills of the Central Pacific coastline, Si Como No has no direct access to the beach.
Take advantage of the hotel’s complimentary shuttle service to Manuel Antonio Beach to experience one of the area’s greatest landmarks. The hotel even provides the beach towels, you simply hop on the van and head out in search of the sun and ocean.
Entertainment for Everyone
Si Como No has not just a focus on nature, but also on culture.
In addition to the detail-oriented service, Si Como No offers a variety of amenities for travelers of all types. Families with small children will love the hotel’s THX cinema, located on one of the lower floors. Every night there are different movies and groups can book the room for private showings as well.

Dining in the Rainforest
There are two restaurants on-site that will have you covered for the day when it comes to top-notch dining. Both restaurants have varied menu options with local and international dishes, and chefs can adhere to dietary restrictions like gluten-free or other food allergies if needed.
Rico Tico offers a casual ambiance, and it even has live music some nights. It’s located next to the pool, so you can also have a bite poolside.
It’s open for all three meals of the day, and buffet breakfast is an experience full of favorites like gallo pinto (rice and beans), pancakes, and pastries.

The other restaurant is Claro Que Sí, and is open for lunch and dinner. This is a more elegant setting, specializing in seafood and wine. The sangria, daiquiris, and margaritas are a highlight during a meal or to fight off the heat in the afternoons.
