Manuel Antonio and Quepos have several nightlife options, including the hostel bar and pool bar. We are located across the street from a famous bar built into a Cold Wa-era jumbo jet. There are a few other bars within walking distance, and the town of Quepos is home to various discos for a more local scene, a 5 minute taxi ride away.
Keep in mind the Quepos-Manuel Antonio area has a small town feel so don’t expect Miami Beach. We are staying in a tourist town on the beach in rural Costa Rica. Happy hour, and bigger parties on Friday and Saturday night are most common.
Yes. At your accommodations, there is laundry service for the cost of $10 US for 5 kilos of laundry.
We are staying in the jungle so expect to see lizards, frogs, or bugs. Costa Ricans prefer not to kill insects as they understand we are a visitor in their environment.
Long sleeves and pants are a good idea at dusk to protect from mosquitos. Please opt for eco-friendly, non-aerosol insect repellents.

There is no hard age limit for Digital Nomad Trips. We believe a good co-working space or professional community should include people of all ages.
That being said, most of our community members have been part of our Under30Experiences community, open to travelers age 21-35.
As our community has now been around for 10+ years, we've launched new brands like Over30Experiences, for travelers in their 30s and 40s.
All our welcome on Digital Nomad Trips, just be aware that most of the people will be young and active!
