Expert Review

One of Manuel Antonio’s most venerable high-end properties, La Mariposa (the butterfly), juts out of the verdant top of a hill, 535 feet over the ocean, a vantage point that gives it panoramic 360-degree views of the surrounding land and sea. Located on nine acres, the white, medium-rise buildings have something of a Spanish colonial influence, with details like graceful wrought-iron grillwork. All 60 units are all fairly roomy, air conditioned, equipped with televisions and have balconies to better gaze out upon those glorious views. Otherwise, they vary in style – some have dark-wood furniture, terracotta tile floors, green stucco walls, and glass bricks, while others sport white walls, arched windows, and red terracotta-tile floors. All come with A/C, hair dryer, phone, but if you want a Jacuzzi you’ll have to request it. Among the first-class amenities, the dining stands out, thanks to the Mariposa culinary team, who expertly weaves together an eclectic-international menu, adding exotic touches here and there like their great seafood selection and their freshly prepared pastas and creative dessert menu.
