about El Parador Hotel, Manuel Antonio National Park

Isolated, yet close enough to Playa Biesanz and Manuel Antonio National Park for great access, El Parador Hotel is a wonderful option in the area. Miles of sandy beaches stretch down the coast, 12 acres of spectacular rainforest are brimming with wildlife and the luxurious, and sustainably green, spa is just waiting to pamper you! The building itself is inspired by an old Spanish ‘parador’, keeping all the European charm and Costa Rican hospitality you could ask for.

With its romantic sunsets and beach vistas, this is a spectacular spot for honeymooners - but that doesn’t mean its not suitable for families. With 3 swimming pools on site, as well as tennis courts and miniature golf, there is plenty to keep your little ones entertained.
