Top choice hotel in Manuel Antonio Village
Image by

Part of the Selina empire of dozens of hostels across Central America, this place is already a legend. Check in at the VW campervan desk then find your dorm or private room scattered among rainforested cliffs in elegant white buildings livened up with rotating art exhibits. The bar has become the area’s best nightlife spot.

There's frequent live music from some of the hottest local talent, plus happy hour from 5pm to 7pm (with two-for-one deals on classic drinks). Plus there are two pools, sweet views and a good restaurant.
