Nestled in the rain forest and overlooking the Pacific Ocean, Villa El Cantico is located in Manuel Antonio, above one of the most beautiful coastal areas in Costa Rica. This is where the rain forest literally reaches down to meet the sea in one of the most diverse ecosystems in the world. The name "El Cantico" means "The Melody" and reflects the private symphony of tropical sights and sounds that await you.
El Cantico includes six air conditioned bedrooms (1 king, 5 queens, 2 twin beds, plus 1 media room with a queen sofa bed), four full baths, plus one pool bath. It comfortably sleeps 10-14 guests. Each bedroom is fully appointed and includes a private balcony or terrace.
The spacious great room with 30-foot ceiling is designed to bring in sea breezes and jungle sounds. The three story bay windows overlooking the rainforest and Pacific ocean create a personal theater for viewing wildlife and jungle scenery. The fully equipped kitchen was designed as the "heart of the home". The entertainment/media room is equipped with a home theater for indoor entertaining. The office (which also acts as an additional seventh bedroom) has a computer, printer and high-speed Internet access.
