Located right beside the world-renowned Manuel Antonio National Park is Hotel San Bada, which also happens to be just a two-minute walk from the beach. The hotel takes pride in being a sustainable hotel and simultaneously providing luxurious accommodations while protecting the Costa Rican environment.

If you're in town for a true adventure, you must check out Mulguri. A private property that is owned by Hotel San Bada, the natural paradise features four waterfalls that are perfect for relaxing, swimming and simply enjoying the view. The trip is about 90 minutes from the hotel and includes 45 minutes through a tropical rainforest. While you're in the area, you can also go horseback riding near the Savegre River, view the gorgeous mountains surrounding the property and much more.

Perhaps you prefer to stick closer to the hotel. Hotel San Bada features two pools. The main pool is the perfect family adventure. At just over 1,300 square feet, the space includes two artificial waterfalls and an accessible ramp. A bridge and lighted water curtain add to the beauty of the family pool, and the wet bar with restaurant service ensures everyone can have a great lunch without needing to dry off and head inside. If you are traveling without kids, you can use the adults-only pool on the sixth-floor terrace. This quiet space provides views of the park and the ocean, and you can order snacks, drinks or meals from the nearby bar.

Are you looking for something even more relaxing than a dip in the pool? The hotel's on-site spa, Sana Spa, provides a wide variety of signature spa services that use pure tropical botanicals sourced from Costa Rica and specifically handcrafted for the spa. Five treatment rooms include a sauna, steam room, couples room, single room and a room for manicures and pedicures. Nearby, a fitness room provides basic equipment, dressing rooms and a view of Manuel Antonio National Park.

With everything there is to do at Hotel San Bada, you are sure to work up an appetite. The hotel's restaurant, Congo Restaurant, serves breakfast each morning and a variety of other items throughout the day. The lunch and dinner menus include locally sourced seafood and international cuisines, and special meals are available upon request. Nearby, you'll find Perezoso Snack Bar. Enjoy the meals, snacks and drinks available here while you look out at the national park and the ocean.
