Lead a yoga retreat here and it was perfect! So much wildlife, monkeys, macaws, frogs, and toucans. Ana (the property manager) was very responsive to all the needs we had.

Management response:

Hi, We're so glad you and your group enjoyed your stay at Happy Jacana. You were a great group and we look forward to your next visit. Ana

The lights were broken in the master bedroom and never fixed, no light the entire...

Management response:

We sincerely apologize for the sliding glass door but unfortunately we tried to get someone there immediately but they were unable to show up until after you'd checked out, the door has been replaced though. As for the other issues, nothing was ever reported to us or we certainly would have taken care of it immediately. This is a vacation...

About the neighborhood
Costa Rica is often referred to as the gem of central america, and Manuel Antonio, the gem of Costa Rica. The property is uniquely situated at the start of Manuel Antonio , just after Quepos, so you get the best of both worlds. 5 minutes from Quepos airport, a 15 min. drive to Dominical, 45 minutes away from world class waves in Hermosa and the buzz of Jaco Beach. Plus there's many places just a short drive away if you want to actively explore the are awhile you're here.
