Manatus Hotel, Tortuguero

Honeymooning? Or just dreaming of whisking your significant someone away to a tranquil haven set amidst beautiful scenery and exotic wildlife?

Manatus Hotel lives up to the dream. It stands on the banks of a river that twists its sinuous way through the diversity that is typical of Costa Rica’s northern coastline. Stay at Manatus and you will be able to explore the rainforest canopy, not to mention streams that suddenly open out onto narrow lagoons, or swamps teeming with fantastical birds.

Go kayaking, or sport fishing, or simply laze in a hammock, under gently swishing trees.
