This beautiful hotel has pools with swim-up bars, restaurants with organic food, great views, lush vegetation and numerous animals. A pair of toucans would serenade guests and then fly off, monkeys frolicked, agoutis scooted by along with other animals. Ironically, at their seafood restaurant my husband and I had the tastiest and tenderest beef we have ever eaten. As we... More

Our 90 minute guided night tour was a totally different rainforest experience. The variety of frogs alone was amazing. Be sure to wear closed shoes, socks, and hopefully long pants. Bring bug spray! A camera which works in low light will take some amazing photos.

Just amazing! We're so glad to have been told about this night tour offered by the Si Como No Greentique Hotel in Manuel Antonio, CR. Our guide, Caesar, was a Naturalist who was very knowledgeable and informative. The duration of the tour was ~1.5 hours and it commenced at dusk(6:30 pm). We entered the rainforest armed with a flashlight provided... More

Nice park but fairly expensive to enter with long lines unless you get there early. Only a few paths, with the main one being an access road. In dec there were thousands of people on the road so it felt more like a Disneyland experience than a remote park. Good points were that it was easy for any ability to... More

What a wonderful, warm and inviting place! The staff couldn't be nicer and more helpful, and the food is very good. Lovely pool, kids love the slide and make plenty of friends in a safe and cozy atmosphere. Has a family feel- best place we have stayed in CR!

We did the night tour here after loving the night hike in Monteverde. In Monteverde it was $25 pp and on an actual nature reserve, while here it's $39 pp and on a tiny property across the street from their hotel that they call their reserve. Let's just say everything in Manuel Antonio is more expensive and touristy because it's... More

Two of us reserved this tour last minute after we found out the Jungle Night Tour in Rainmaker Park was unavailable that night. We parked at the Si Como No hotel and walked about 100 meters further down the road to a small house where we met Cesar, our tour guide. We only had a four people in our tour,... More

We took the night tour to see the nocturnal wildlife. Our guide struggled with her English, but we could usually figure out what she *meant* to be saying. We spotted spiders, 2-3 kinds of frogs, lizards, and a snake. There were crocodiles and caymans in captivity as well, that it was fun to see by flashlight. There was a second... More
