Gabriela Seidl is the owner of The Funky Monkey Lodge and along with her excellent team represent probably the best value for money lodgings on the Nicoya Peninsula. Shabby chic probably best describes this little hotel which is famous for it’s sushi nights – you know the food is great when the locals turn up to eat here.

There is a range of accommodations including private bungalows, apartments and shared dorm. Each year the list of amenities expands which is great for non-surfers as there is always something to do.
