  • An absolute disappointment. Great scenery destroyed by the number of tourists and the locals’ behavior. Scammers in every corner, pushing you to buy things you don’t want or need, or trying to...

  • Great beach. Shades, massage and water sport activities available. Shades are cheap but drinks are a bit pricey. Kid friendly. Totally recommended.
  • Espadilla Beach might not be rated as the best beach in Manuel Antonio but if you want easy parking, no parking hawkers, no fees with good lounge chairs and umbrellas, it's pretty perfect. On a lucky day the monkeys will come and try to steal your stuff. You can also get food and drinks, a massage or a surf lesson From the main road turn in at the igloo resort and travel 1000 feet to the beach. Usually there is parking along the rutted road coming in.
