Parador Resort & Spa

Designed with a Spanish architectural style, and named for Spanish Inns or “Paradores,” the Parador Resort & Spa is located in Manuel Antonio one of the closest beaches to Costa Rica’s capital city of San Jose. Perched atop an impressive hillside Parador Resort & Spa faces the stunningly blue and beautiful Pacific Ocean waters. The property is surrounded by tropical rainforest and the grounds are filled with manicured, foliage-filled gardens. With a spa, four restaurants, several bars and lounges, three swimming pools, and walking trails there is plenty of space to relax, enjoy a meal or savor a delicious, tropical cocktail during your stay. Best of all Parador Resort & Spa is just a short walk to Biesanz Beach and a couple of miles from Costa Rica’s most popular tourist spot, Manuel Antonio National Park. All of the tastefully decorated rooms have balconies with either ocean or rainforest views.

The garden and jungle rooms have views of the greenery, while spacious superior rooms have ocean views. Premier room guests enjoy 180-degree views of the ocean, and large luxury suites are available with an in-room Jacuzzi, wrap-around porch, and private entrance. Take a swim or relax by one of the three pools (two of them are adult only!). Get a relaxing massage at the spa before dining at one of the four on-site restaurants. There are several bar/lounge areas to choose from and walking trails that meander through the 12-acre premise taking you through lush gardens and rainforest where you are almost guaranteed to see white-faced and squirrel monkeys, sloths, iguanas, coatimundis, and many species of birds. Many activities are available in the Manuel Antonio area to enhance your vacation. A visit to Manuel Antonio National Park is a must. Take the easy hike through the park with experienced guides who find wildlife they share with you through their high-powered spotting scopes. Stop for a walk on the beach or along the trails. Scuba diving and snorkeling, plus mangrove tours by boat are kayaks are favorites in Manuel Antonio and the fishing off-shore is world-class.
