apartments to rent?

First time to Costa Rica, hubby and I have selected Manuel Antonio as our primary destination - we'll probably do day trips from here. A couple of questions please..

1) Knowing that MA is very touristy, we wondered if we could rent an apartment as opposed to a hotel, where we could walk to the beach/into town/explore on foot etc and get a feel for the locals and culture?

2) Any places that we could visit a few hours from MA, bearing in mind that we wish to make the apartment our base?

Thanks so much,

Playa Hermosa...

You'll find many options avail. in the MA/Quepos area for rentals. Search VRBO, FlipKey and Homeaway for starters. Also www.quepolandia.com is a monthly publication which locals often advertise short and long term rentals. Additionally, the EcoApartments in MA Estates rent by the week. You'll get a feel for the locals by doing some shopping in Quepos, going to the feria (public fruit/veg market) on Friday afternoon and Saturday morning, and people watching at the beach on Sunday. Hope it helps!

You can find many hotels/condos/apartment in Manuel Antonio here: southerncostarica.biz/Manuel-Antonio/…

Compare price.

In MA, I really like the National Park and the public beach.

To eat at night, I love El Avion to see the sunset.

I did a catamaran tour and it was real fun! Snorkeling included.
