About Eilyn Perez Pastrana

Director James Stinson lives onsite at Villa Manakin or Villa Jacana at the site of Coravida, a green Eco-village project that promises to bring heart inspired wellness and a healthy lifestyle to those who seek it.

Why Eilyn Perez Pastrana chose Quepos

This is one of the best locations in Manuel Antonio and all of Costa Rica. Manuel Antonio is in a prime location where thousands of people visit the National Park every day. And the proximity to town makes it very convenient - yet we're far enough away from everything that you feel like you're in nature surrounded by trees, in a secure gated community.

What makes this house unique

Gated community

Bamboo Forest

Hilltop paradise with ocean view

Two villas overlooking the ocean

Monkeys, Macaws, Iguanas and so much nature!

Best Vacation Ever!!

  • 5 of 5

My experience here was simply amazing. I had the pleasure of working with Dorit, who helped me every step of the way. Because of Dorit's help, my trip was easily planned and went without a glitch. To add, we were all very please with the property. It is beautiful, well kept, and has the most amazing view ever.

I highly recommend a stay here. You will be amazed!!

Manuel Antonio National Park

This is definitely a must for things to do in Manuel Antonio. Forbes once called Manuel Antonio National Park one of the most beautiful in the world! The national park has well maintained hiking trails with the perfect combination of jungle and beach and is absolutely teeming with wildlife. If you really want to see a sloth in Costa Rica, this is one of the best places to see them.
