About
Description
Recharge in serene Nature at an unspoiled Beach! Come stay with us at Jardín de los Monos! We are a small Bed and Breakfast in Costa Rica and located in the quiet and beautiful natural area of Playa Matapalo. ...More You will find no crowds here; you will have the gorgeous stretched-out beach almost all to yourself. Yet conveniently located from main tourist attractions as Manuel Antonio, Dominical and Marino Ballena National Park. Our Bed and Breakfast is located a minute’s walk from the beach and surrounded by a lovely tropical garden where-from you can spot wildlife as monkeys, sloths, toucans, hummingbirds etc… Spot this wildlife from your hammock or from the sundeck next to the swimming pool. We offer rooms with and without AC. As a real B&B, we take our breakfast seriously; choose from a menu and we make it fresh for you. Including our specialties: original Dutch pancakes & homemade bread! We also offer a nice swim-up / poolside bar. Less

Once you are at the property you will be able to get to the shops and local cafes on foot but the best restaurant is on the main road and quite a walk- 1.5 to 2 km but worth it!
