Bus stops to all points in Manuel Antonio are located 75 meters from the hotel, buses run every twenty minutes and the cost is less than one dollar. Several restaurants are located within walking distance including La Luna, El Arado and Blues Cafe. Guests also have the option of ordering express service from many restaurants and enjoy jungle view dining as all suites feature dining areas. Free shuttle service is available to and from Marina Pez Vela where guests can choose from seven different types of restaurants. Our location allows room for guests to enjoy daily wildlife visits including monkeys, sloths, toucans, iguanas, butterflies and macaws. Pura Vida from Hotel Yara in Manuel Antonio.

What is the best way to get to the hotel? What is the best shuttle service? Is there a bus? If so, how difficult (and safe) is it to use? Any idea how much a taxi costs?
How do I get from San Jose airport to this hotel?
