Makanda by the Sea is the ideal location for visitors wishing to experience Costa Rica’s natural splendor and variety while enjoying the comforts of first-class jungle lodging. All of the Villas are contoured into the jungle and descending mountain terrain with the abruptly inclining hillsides allowing dramatic ocean views from all locations.
HeliconiasIn July 1985, Makanda by the Sea was started by the designer and owner, Joe McNichols. Inspired by his dream, Makanda has been built in balance with it’s natural surroundings. Using nature as the backdrop, the architectural openness allows the rich tropical flora to become a part of the living environment.
Selection of flora was based on the ability to attract a mix of butterflies, birds, monkeys, sloths and other local fauna, making a stay here a heightened jungle experience.
