you’ll find us in the hammocks at villas nicolas.

there’s something so magical about a perfectly placed hammock. it just screams rest & relaxation, right? we were lucky to have one on our patio at Villas Nicolas and spent plenty of time swinging in the ocean breeze.

we spent five nights at Villas Nicolas during our time in Manuel Antonio and we loved every bit of it. the property is a boutique condo complex with a handful of private villas perfectly perched in the manuel antonio jungle, but perfectly situated in the tiny town for easy access to anything you’d want. walking distance to bars and restaurants and a quick $.60 public bus ride to the Manuel Antonio National Park or the larger city of Quepos.

here’s a look at the time we spent lounging around at Villas Nicolas in Manuel Antonio, Costa Rica.

Barbra Roja Manuel Antonioour favorite dos-para-uno happy hour spot was def Barba Roja (three photos above), just a little walk up the hill from our villa. we watched 2 out of our 5 manuel antonio sunsets from their patio enjoying delicious 2-for-1 Cacique Sours (drink of Costa Rica) and 2-for-1 sushi rolls to go with it. and the best part, we felt like total locals by the second night with everyone welcoming us back! ha – perfecto mundo!
