Enjoy the relaxed luxury in 1 of our 3 newly built, stand alone bungalows in the heart of Uvita. Featuring king beds, private baths with indoor/outdoor shower access & well-appointed kitchenettes.
Take delight in spotting macaws, hummingbirds & dragonflies from your private patio or while taking a dip in your private plunge pool w/sundeck & loungers.
We’re a 5 minute walk to the famous Whale’s Tail & are conveniently located near the best dining, surfing, yoga & adventures the SoZo has to offer.

The space
The name. |ma·na | \ ˈmä-nə\ (n)
The power of the elemental forces of nature embodied in an object or person - Merriam-Webster.

There are few places in the world that epitomize this definition more completely than the Southern Zone of Costa Rica. The SoZo has it all. It is here that the elements reign, and it is here that you can be in your own.

The Earth element surrounds you in our lushly landscaped grounds and gardens, while the decor of our modern bungalows is inspired by the elements: Fire, Air, and Water.

We have included all the comforts you’d expect like free WiFi, A/C, ceiling fans, laptop safe, and free secure parking. We provide complete kitchenettes and hotel quality bedding, bathrobes, towels, pool towels, and linens.

We’ve also included a few extras. Each bungalow has a private plunge pool with sundeck and loungers, private garden with furnished patio, a small breakfast table, sitting area, USB outlets, and electronic keyless entry.

Bathroom amenities include a hair dryer, magnification mirror, indoor/outdoor shower access, and complimentary, locally produced, organic shampoo, conditioner, body wash and hand soap. Bar soaps are wrapped in environmentally friendly banana paper. Shampoo, conditioners, and body wash are provided in refillable dispensers, eliminating hundreds of single use plastic bottles annually.

Kitchenettes are stocked with a mini-refrigerator, 2 burner electric stovetop, toaster oven, electric tea kettle, basic utensils, dishes, and pots & pans. For coffee lovers, we provide a Chorreador, Bialetti, and locally sourced coffee. In our further effort to reduce plastic waste, we are proud to offer filter water pitchers, stainless steel water bottles, and stainless steel straws for use during your visit.

For your off-site adventures, we’re happy to provide guests complimentary use of bicycles with locks (upon request), realtor style lock box for car keys, sand free beach mats and beach towels.

Our 2-story open air rancho offers community space for guests and visitors. The first floor has tables, chairs and a restroom. The second floor offers space for yoga, nature viewing, classes and other activities.

If it’s your soul that needs a lift, we are happy to arrange sessions with local healers, body workers, and yoga instructors. Some services are available in room while others are just a short drive away.

Location

Uvita, Puntarenas Province, Costa Rica

Our neighborhood location in Bahia Ballena allows for an easy walk or bike ride to restaurants, grocery stores, our local farmers markets, banks, and other conveniences. We are a 5-minute walk to the world famous Whale’s Tail sandbar in the Marino Ballena National Park. We’re a bike ride away from Playa Chaman and a short drive to other local beaches. Uvita itself is centrally located between the world famous surf town of Dominical and Ojochal, the “Culinary Capital of Costa Rica”. Uvita is great home base location for other SoZo attractions like Corcovada, Canos Island, Drake’s Bay and the Osa Peninsula.

A dream was born 25 years ago when, after seeing a photo in a magazine, my wife and I decided that we were moving to Costa Rica! Once we made our first trip to the Southern Zone we instantly knew we had found our true home. We were in our element. Well, it took awhile but here we are! Hailing from the Bay Area, CA. Having been avid travelers, sailors, and dog lovers throughout our journey together. We’ve been married for more than half our lives (she's a keeper!) We always appreciate a great meal and love to travel, laugh, and learn. We have an insatiable craving for Vitamin Sea and love our new home in the Costa Verde. Mia, our canine ambassador, joined our project last year when she stole our hearts and chose us as her human companions. Mana Beach Bungalows was created as an expression of our love and respect for the immense beauty of this very special place on earth. I welcome you to come and share our bit of paradise. I invite you to discover your element!
