Villa Punto de Vista perches high on a bluff, overlooking the white-capped Pacific Ocean and the idyllic sands of Manuel Antonio. The small town, named for its eponymous national park, is located on Costa Rica’s central Pacific coast, where you’ll find spectacular rainforests, ivory coastline, rushing rivers, crystalline waterfalls, and aromatic vanilla plantations.

Our location, just a short stroll to the beach but removed from the tourist bustle, is Manuel Antonio’s best. In fact, there is no other large, private villa in the region closer to the beach. And not just the beach: we’re only minutes to Manuel Antonio National Park, local spas, the  best restaurants, and top activities, like canopy ziplines, parasailing, hiking and catamaran sailing.

From your private suite, the view stretches to tiny islands that dot the curving bay. Endangered squirrel monkeys chatter in the trees, where curious sloths also laze. Parrots and Toucans share the air space. And sunsets dazzle every night, as they disappear over the horizon in a kaleidoscopic blaze. This is Manuel Antonio, as seen from the picture-perfect heights of Villa Punto de Vista, Spanish for point of view.
