Not only is Gaia considered one of the best Manuel Antonio hotels, but this property was once a wildlife rescue center; toucans, sloths, and monkeys are still easily observed in the surrounding rainforest.
The pale-sand beaches of Manuel Antonio National Park can be reached by car in ten minutes. Wi-Fi is available throughout the hotel.
Gaia’s 18 airy suites and studios feature contemporary styling and a neutral color palette. Some upper category rooms add ocean views, plunge pools, and jacuzzis.
Each guest room is furnished with a King-size bed, toiletries, air conditioning, Wi-Fi, television, security box, mini-bar, and hairdryer.
The hotel’s restaurant, La Luna, provides panoramic sunset views. Among the other hotel amenities are a three-level infinity pool, sundeck, spa, dry sauna, and fitness center.
One of the highlights of staying at Gaia is exploring the Manuel Antonio National Park. The park–known for its beaches, hiking trails, and wildlife–can be reached by car in about 15 minutes from Gaia. Other beaches, such as Playita and Espadilla Sur, are even closer.
This part of the Central Pacific Coast offers dozens of active adventure options. LANDED arranges privately guided visits to the national park, as well as sailing, waterfall hiking, riding, biking, zip-lining, sport-fishing, surfing, and kayaking excursions. Looking for more?
