Manuel Antonio National Park

This beaches are the most beautiful in the country, lined with lush forest, and the snorkeling is excellent too.

Manuel Antonio National Park – Costa Rica’s Natural Treasure

Manuel Antonio contains a charming combination of rain forest, beaches and coral reefs

The forest is home for sloths, iguanas, the rare and adorable squirrel monkeys and millions of colorful little crabs. And the trail that winds around Punta Catedral affords some spectacular views. The park is easy to reach, south of the town of Quepos, and is near a good selection of hotels and restaurants.

Visiting the park, one is treated to an abundant diversity of wildlife. Cathedral Point, with its forest topped cliffs was once an island, but is now connected to the coast by a thin strip of island. This land bridge now forms the spine separating the parks two most popular beaches, Playa Espadilla Sur and Playa Manuel Antonio.

The southern facing beach, Playa Manuel Antonio, is a picturesque half mile long, white sand crescent bisecting deep green foliage to one side and a private, secluded cove to the other.

Guides will pick you up at your Manuel Antonio area hotel and after a very short ride you can stop at the local “pulperia” and purchase water or other snacks while your guide takes care of the park entrance fees.

During the two-hour leisurely hike you will look for sloths, numerous species of monkeys, silky anteaters, birds, and reptiles with a good chance to see them all.
At the end of the tour enjoy beverages and guides return you to your hotel.  (If you would like to spend the day at the beach, bring your bathing suit and other items you will need and let your guideManuel Antonio National Park Costa Rica know that you will arrange for a taxi or other transportation back to your hotel).

Discover the beauty of Manuel Antonio, Costa Rica.
