The hotel manager Carlos gave us restaurant recommendations (Mar Luna, Bambu Jam, and Serendipidous?? – Tapas place) and we enjoyed good meals in attractive settings each night.
Each morning a tasty breakfast was served on the hotel deck. It included perfectly ripe seasoned slices of avocado, smoked trout on cheese tidbits, and always rice & beans – finally tried and loved by Aidan. It was a small hotel (about 6 rooms) and we enjoyed getting to know the other guests as well as the manager. (The hotel owners were temporarily in the US.) After breakfast on our first full day (Friday), we went to Manual Antonio National Park. The beaches in the park were spectacular.
