    Manuel Antonio National Park
    Stop: 3 hours - Admission included
    Manuel Antonio National Park is considered one of the most beautiful parks in Costa Rica. On this tour, you will visit pristine beaches, with coral reefs, bordered by exuberant vegetation and the natural wonders of the tropical rainforest. The beaches in Manuel Antonio are highly coveted as some of the best that Costa Rica has to offer. On the way to Manuel Antonio National Park, you will travel along the coastline enjoying scenic views, including African palm plantations. You will also travel past small villages along the Pacific Coast, until you reach the port of Quepos and the ultimately the National Park. Since access to the park itself is closed to vehicles, you will hike to the preserve, crossing a creek. Once in the park, you can simply relax and enjoy the beach, sunbathe, or hike through the park’s trails, which will allow you to observe Manuel Antonio’s abundant flora and fauna. Several species of monkeys, iguanas, birds and possibly even the three-toed sloth can be seen. If you chose to hike the trail to Cathedral Point, do not forget your camera; the views of the park and the sea are simply spectacular!

So amazing! But when the guide tells you to watch out for the monkeys stealing stuff, they mean it... a monkey took my bag and money in it... I recovered most of everything but I’ll never forget it. It was so funny.

Nice trip. Beatiful beach. The park is just OK, not much to see...mostly plants, not wild life..... but relaxing at the beach: priceless. Luch Ok, nothing special. Long trip from San Jose...but it is worth, ...you came to see the country side.
