Who are we?
Mike and Paul, owners of Coyaba Tropical Guesthouse / Bed and Breakfast welcome travelers looking for beach and jungle adventures in Costa Rica. Our property is a Spanish Colonial building that has been fully restored and renovated, each room has been tastefully decorated to reflect the warmth and richness of Costa Rican culture. Offering guests a perfect location, taking either a short bus ride or taxi to Manuel Antonio National Park and the Beach, but also close enough that you can easily walk to the charming town Quepos.
If you are looking for casual elegance, yet modest priced and quality accommodations that can be used as a base to explore the Central Pacific region of Costa Rica, then Coyaba Tropical Guesthouse / Bed and Breakfast provides a unique fusion of Jamaican and Canadian hospitality in an ideal location close to everything, attractions, adventure tours, shopping, restaurants, and beaches.

With so many places to stay why choose us?
There are many options to choose from in Manuel Antonio, but Coyaba Tropical Guesthouse / Bed and Breakfast truly offers something special. Not the same generic decor that greets you at every motel, or the same metal buffet platter full of scrambled eggs next to little prefabricated plastic jelly dispensers.
Coyaba Tropical is not for everyone... our property is just as alive with character inside as its distinctive wall as outside. The charm begins even before you're greeted with a smile at the front door. The property is surrounded by trees and lush gardens, making it a tropical paradise. Our Guesthouse / Bed and Breakfast accommodation is centrally located on the main road leading to Manuel Antonio National Park with easy access to the Beach and convenient public transit just outside our gate. The serpentine road passes over a number of hills awash with picturesque views of forested slopes leading down to the palm-fringed coastline. We are just 7 minutes from Manuel Antonio National Park and famous white sand beaches that surround the National Park, and just one kilometre from the charming port town of Quepos. The staff at Coyaba Tropical are very knowledgeable about local attractions and can recommend adventure tours, we can also suggest the best places for shopping, dining to suit any taste or dietary need, or if you are just looking for bars to socialize, and clubbing to dance the night away.
And when you return from a full day at the beach, adventure tours, hiking and nature watching, or after a night out on the town, guests feel like they're returning home for the evening. No drab, cold, endless lobbies and hallways to drag your tired feet through on the way to your room. At Coyaba Tropical Guesthouse you'll never be confined to a tiny boxy room. Instead you can soak with a cool drink in the Jacuzzi, take a refreshing dip in our pool, or just relax with a good book in our outdoor lounge area. Then in the morning wake up to the inviting aroma of freshly baked bread, and home cooked breakfast, made to order! Relax with a cup of delicious Costa Rican Coffee or a selection from our Tea assortment served next to the pool before you start your day... and when you return, you won't be returning to your hotel room, but home.
Where are we and how to you get to Quepos/Manuel Antonio?
There are many different Car Rental companies to choose from in Costa Rica which is why we only recommend local companies who offer clients good rates and reliable vehicles such as Adobe Car Rental and Rent a Car 4x4 with great deals; free cell phone, GPS, international call cards and savings in All-Inclusive rental packages.
Adventurous travelers may want to check out the Public Bus service with multiple departures daily leaving downtown San Jose for Quepos/Manuel Antonio. While this service is pretty reliable and inexpensive however we recommend using extreme caution with your luggage and personal possessions. For air conditioned comfort, safety and convenience, we can arrange a Hotel-to-Hotel shared ride shuttle service from San Jose that will drop you off at our front door, or if you prefer we would be pleased to arrange a private driver to greet you at the San Jose International Airport and bring you directly to Quepos/Manuel Antonio.
Finally if you just want to get to the beach quickly, either of the two Regional Airlines will get you here from San Jose in just 20 minutes with multiple flights daily. Check out flight schedules with Sansa or Nature Air.
