The Blue Banyan was an interesting place to stay, it wasn't like any of our other destinations in Costa Rica. It's both a place to stay and a place to learn and escape. First, Beth and Barb are great hostesses and make you feel right at home. There is even a pet parrot to greet you. The grounds are beautiful and they have a nice pool. The common areas are very nice and the cabins are nice and private. This place is off the beaten track, but still close to Manuel Antonio and local beaches. One of the coolest things about this place is that they also host a primate sanctuary, rescuing various breeds of monkeys from the illegal pet trade and other less-than appropriate situations for wild animals. These animals can't be re-released into the wild. We got to help feed the monkeys one morning, we didn't get to do that anywhere else. We also met the primatologist and interns helping to care for these noble creatures. Our family left with an experience beyond what any hotel offers. The breakfast was also a great way to start the day. Bannana pancakes...yum. If you are looking for something more meaningful than the Marriot, stay here!
