Manuel Antonio is a popular tourist location in Costa Rica and there are a wide variety of places to dine here, from simple coffee shops to gourmet restaurants.
Some of my favorites include:
El Avión – This restaurant offers a history lesson within the restaurant. It features inside the restaurant a Fairchild C-123, airplane, the sister plane to the one in U.S. that was shot down over Nicaragua during the Iran Contra affair. Learn more about this incident, while dining on delicious seafood and enjoying a great view of the ocean.
Another very popular place to eat is Kapi Kapi which translates to “Welcome” in the language of the Maleku Indians of Costa Rica, This restaurant features elegant food with an Asian influence. Desserts here are spectacular.
El Patio de Cafe Milagro-Bistro Latino is a great place for breakfast, lunch and dinner. It offers a wide range of coffee drinks, fresh-baked sweets, salads, sandwiches and wraps. It received the 5 out of 5 spoons! Tico rating.
Another great vacation home is The Beach House which sleeps up to 8 people in 3 bedrooms. If you have a large group, an amazing facility is Casa Fantastica which can accommodate up to 22 people in 8 bedrooms. This is an amazing 10,000 square foot home featuring a 30 seat cinema, a 20 person jacuzzi, a huge gym and a game room.
