We've planned a 4 night stay in Manuel Antonio, but after arriving decided that 4 was 5 to much. Therefore we did a quick websearch and found Rafiki. Loki (the owner) told us there was plenty of space left so we moved on to... the most amazing place in Costa Rica!
Loki (and his family / team) has done a great job in creating a paradise. We have been several times in South Africa before, and Rafiki has certainly taken the great things from there to Costa Rica. The tents are luxurious with a big bathroom (though you wait 5 minutes for hot water :), and a huge private terras. Our's had a beautiful view of the laguna.
Because Rafiki was almost empty (low season), we spend quiet some time with the staff. Loki took us rafting (wow, even my wife liked it :), where we enjoyed a great lunch. Also we went hiking and horseback riding with Loki and another quest. We had lunch in the nearby village, and felt at home all the way.
The Lodge has a nice dinner room (open), where you will enjoy your full-board Braai. 10 Minutes from the lodge there is a waterfall where you can swim in the morning, and there are plenty of hikes to take.
Loki and all: thanks for having us!
