If you love being in green places, with lush vegetation, nature hikes and total privacy this is your place. You also must love Biology and nature - as you are truly in the middle of a rain forest. It is a once in a lifetime treat and this is one of the only hotels in this area not touristy or with too many groups. You pay the price though as it is very expensive.
Really all you need is a night or two if it is part of your trip to Costa Rica. Once you go on the boat tour (ask for a special tour with Ray Brown - a local who has lived here his entire life and very passionate about the rain forest and natural medicine) a hike and enjoy the all-inclusive meals at Manatus, this is pretty much all there is to see in the area, unless you are scientist studying ecology.
The chocolate cake at Hotel Manatus and Garlic Red Snapper is a must on the menu at the hotel. Make sure to ask for Leo - very gentle soul and always at your service.
