Beaches & Biodiversity!

Everyone who travels through the mid Pacific zone, must visit Manuel Antonio. Not only is it easily accessible, but it is truly one of the most beautiful parks in Costa Rica. It sits along the Pacific Coast and boasts an estuary, mangroves, a lagoon, beaches and winding paths. All this on 638 hectares of land and 55.000 hectares of protected marine environment. Take a walk through the tropical forest and find mosses, ferns, flowers and epiphytes growing thickly on every tree. One trail leads you to an observation tower with a breathtaking 360° view.

Throughout the park, you will find the famous wildlife Costa Rica is known for. Licensed local guides are available at the park's entrance and are worth the investment.

Knowledgeable and professional, they enable visitors to understand the habitat they are visiting and the roles of the animals, plants and insects.

By following logical eco-sensitive advice, you can enjoy the park to the fullest. Ensure you don't scare away the furry residents by keeping voices low and stepping quietly. Although the capuchin monkeys are quite comfortable in coming close and gazing at you quite inquisitively, retrain from feeding them.

Take along a small pack and make a day of it! There are fresh water showers and bathroom facilities along the trail as well as picnic areas. You can hike for a while and stop for a refreshing swim at Third Beach or Gemelas Beach.

Be sure to get your hand stamped at the park entrance which allows you to come and go as you please for the day.

The town of Manuel Antonio offers restaurants, lodging and souvenir shops. Aside from the park, there are several activities that you can enjoy in the area. Horseback riding, volley-ball, and sea kayaking are just a few.

Beachcombing is not only a good way to explore the beaches, but it's also inexpensive!

Public buses run promptly from Quepos to Manuel Antonio and will let you out wherever it suits you.
