Especially for large families w/children, I would highly recommend the TreeTop house in MonteVerde. It used to be an art store so it has many rooms on many levels that connect through stairs on the outside. There are great views from the 3 levels and the house is very unique. The children loved playing outside and you can actually hear a stream from the house. There's a neat porch swing and hammock this kids played on for hours. For the adults, we liked sitting, drinking and talking during dusk and watching the clouds roll in. The view is stunning and rainstorms are just like what you hear in those CD's for sale. A couple recommendations on activities. Ziplining was the kid's favorite activity. If you are going to Manual Antonio I might save the jungle tours for there because Monteverde is so large it's more difficult to see things (In Manuel Antonio we save 2 types of monkeys, a snake, deer, sloths, etc, etc, etc.) We did go on the night hike which was super fun. We had a massage by Karen (from America) and she has a room right by the coop. She's extremely good and very reasonable. The price for the TreeTop house is very reasonable for the value and experience you get staying here. Pura Vida.
