I've stayed in Manuel Antonio a couple of times, first at El Mono Azul and most recently at Hotel Karahe. I was wondering if any one had any other suggestions for places I should consider.
While spartan, but clean, Karahe is awesome because it is as close to being on the beach as you can be in M.A. and the troops of monkeys come by in the morning and the evening. That is really why I stay there, to see the monkeys.
Is there another place where you are almost guaranteed to see monkeys at your hotel? If so, I'd be interested to know people's opinions on the place and a general price range. I'm going back in about a month, so it won't be a peak time of year.
Also, does anyone actually negotiate room rates? I've heard it can be done, but haven't ever tried...
Thanks in advance!
