Makanda by the Sea is the romantic’s dream come true, as an adults-only getaway with acres of land stretched above the coastline and a comfortable, secluded seat between Quepos and the Manuel Antonio National Park. The dozen or so villas and studios are spaced out perfectly in the middle of the jungle, surrounded by vegetation and panoramic views of the ocean. The quarters are all well-appointed, clean, and exceptionally roomy, each decked with exotic wood textures. The poolside restaurant is commended for its scrumptious fare, prepared with local ingredients and served by friendly, hospitable staff. The days pass lazily fishing or swimming in the infinity pool. Others prefer a little bit of adrenaline and try their hand at mountain biking and surfing, among other things.
A jungle getaway for discerning adults.
Makanda By the Sea is 12 acres of sanctuary, 100 meters above the ocean. All of Makanda's Villas and Studios have been carefully placed in the botanical rainforest gardens with spectacular views of the sixty mile coastline. It is truly a haven for the adventurist seeking relief from the controlled environs of modern life. Located just off the main road between Quepos and Manuel Antonio National Park , Makanda By the Sea's unique contemporary design blends elegant architecture with its striking green backdrop in one of Costa Rica 's richest natural settings.
