The Manuel Antonio area has traditionally remained the most admired Pacific coastal destination in Costa Rica by foreigners and locals alike.
The quality of its beaches, its accessibility from San Josť and its informal congeniality have helped make it an ideal hideaway for small scale residential and commercial developments. As a community with deliberately different priorities from the more densely developed resort regions of the northwestern peninsula, Manuel Antonio has become regarded as the perfect remote, high-value location as a bedroom community and for investment. It is convenient to the requirements of business and travel, yet comfortably insulated from the pace of civilization.
Complete infrastructure including municipal power and water, a commuter airport, pier and marina facilities, as well as a primary care hospital and quality highway access, support real estate values and direct foreign investment by international communities worldwide.
