About the neighbourhood
Casa Tranquila is a part of the Pacific Canyon Neighborhood Association. Donald, her owner, is even the president of the organization. Our street is gated and guarded, so your confidence is assured.
Casa Tranquila (indicated above by the star) is perfectly located halfway between the sleepy Costa Rica village of Quepos and the Manuel Antonio National Park. This five mile drive locates our villa at the peak of the mountain . . . providing the most stellar of views in all of Costa Rica. Most important, Casa Tranquila is on the 'Ocean Side' of the main road . . . so you will feel like you can touch the sea from our balcony.
Getting around
Manuel Antonio has an excellent shuttle system: frequent, cheap and efficient. Plus, Nathan can always call to have a taxi arrive at Casa Tranquila if you prefer; they are abundant and well-priced.
Car not needed
