My girlfriend and I stayed at Makanas for a week and we could not have had a better experience. The location is perfect--it is secluded enough to preserve wildlife but is also easily accessible.
The beach is less than a minute walk where you can relax all day and enjoy an amazing sunset by night. The rooms themselves are immaculate. Hot showers (which was super exciting for us!), very comfortable beds, a good-size deck with chairs and a hammock. Aaron and Tatiana go above and beyond to ensure your experience is perfect, while giving you very much personal space all the same. If you're going to Santa Teresa, definitely stay here. If you're not sure about going to Santa Teresa, you should definitely reconsider!

- Makanas offers three discreet and quaint cabins by the ocean. Step out of your room and watch the monkeys swing by in the canopy above or listen to the tropical birds in the morning as you enjoy a cup of delicious Costa Rican coffee. We are located well away from the hustle and bustle of downtown Santa Teresa, yet steps away from the prized beaches Santa Teresa is known for. Come experience Santa Teresa at its best, with world class surfing, fishing, excellent cuisine and some of the best sunsets the world has to offer.
