I wanted to go some place warm and stayed as close to the ocean as possible.
Makanas turned out to be exactly what I needed. It has a great location of being right next to the beach and also a few minutes drive to the supermarket, great restaurants,
The best thing that it was located a little bit out of the Santa Teresa's center and less people and less noicse and yet still close to everything.
All cabinas on the property which are in the middle of trees and nature. It was really neat to see iguanas, birds, and monkeys.
The cabin itself was very clean with air conditioning, huge hot shower, mini refrigerator and a safe. The beds are very comfortable.
The manager Aaron and his wife are very friendly and locals from Santa Teresa and an absolutly great source of where to go, eat, shop, and what to see.
They live on the property with 2 dogs and ktten who are adorable and and very friendly. I highly recommend going on a fishing trip with Aaron. Also you can fish directly form the beach.
Speaking of Aaron's cooking, he can make some great (taste and size) pancakes and waffles for breakfast!
After staying for 3 nights I was never at a loss of things to do around Makanas.
Staying in Makanas is like having your own private beach.
Sunsets and morning walks from Makanas is absolutly unforgettable.
I definetly will come again and again.
