We ended up at Funky Monkey by accident, and we loved it. Nahuel, Guillaume, Guillaume's novia (I forget your name!) - all of you guys made us feel really at home (Meghan & Brian from Canada). Here's what we liked: - service was excellent - everyone was so nice and helpful, and always tried to find solutions to our problems,...

Recently my girlfriends and I took a much needed vacation to Santa Teresa, Costa Rica. I cannot say enough fabulous things about the Funky Monkey and their staff.

The dorm beds wow even made me jealous, so clean with a wider single beds. I swapped my detached chalet for a bed...

What a great place! We stayed in Manuel Antonio, Jaco, and Alejuela, but Santa Teresa was our favorite due in no small part to the accommodations and staff (Thanks Nahuel!) at the Funky Monkey. There's a clan of howler monkeys that frequent the grounds and we had a songbird that would fly inside our cabana each morning and serenade us....
