Manuel Antonio National Park
From US$100.00
Lowest Price Guaranteed
Boasting one of the country’s most beautiful beaches, Manuel Antonio National Park is a must-see Costa Rica attraction. Embark on a full-day tour to this protected nature reserve from the Jaco area. Join your naturalist guide on a jungle hike to spot native wildlife like sloths and monkeys, or opt to spend the whole day soaking up the sun on pristine white sandy beaches. Enjoy a picnic lunch, snacks and round-trip transport from your Jaco hotel.
What to Expect
Discover why Manuel Antonio National Park is a favorite destination for visitors to Costa Rica. After morning pickup from your Jaco, Punta Leone or Fiesta Resort hotel, enjoy a scenic drive down the Central Pacific coast, passing through African palm plantations and small villages along the way.
Vehicles are not allowed in park in order to protect its fragile ecosystem, so you’ll leave the van behind at the town of Quepos for a short walk through the jungle and across a creek. Once inside the reserve, you’ll be greeted by an expanse of crystal-clear water lapping up against a gorgeous stretch of white sandy beach. 
The day is yours to spend as you please. Join your guide on a nature hike through the surrounding rain forest to learn about abundant native plant species and spot local wildlife such as capuchin monkeys, sloths, iguanas, coatis and tropical birds. Hike along a trail towards the Cathedral Point outcropping for splendid panoramic views of the park.
You can also choose to relax on the beach and soak up the tropical sun, either after your hike or all day. Cool off with a refreshing swim in the crystal-clear water. Midday, enjoy a picnic lunch of fresh Costa Rican cuisine. As the sun begins to fall, hike back out of the park and enjoy the scenic return drive to your hotel.

Excellent Day Outdoors

wide variety of things to do. Can be overwhelming finding a place to park. Many "official" looking attendents directing you. Go past them and get as close as you can to the entrance, then work you way back out if needed. Somewhat hard to find...More

Lots of wildlife viewing, tour guide knew just where to look

The tour van picked us up at our hotel and drove to the park. The guide was most experienced with knowing where to locate wildlife up in the trees (monkeys, sloths, birds). One comment on the tour guide, very opinionated when it comes to politics....More
