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,
