Manuel Antonio National Park is considered one of the most beautiful parks in Costa Rica. On this tour, you will visit heavenly beaches, with clear water and coral reefs, bordered by exuberant vegetation and the natural wonders of the tropical rainforest. Its beaches are counted among the best of the country, where snorkeling and the surfing are very popular.On the way to Manuel Antonio National Park, you will travel along the coastline enjoying scenic views and crossing plantations of African palms. You’ll also travel past small villages along the Pacific Coast, until you reach the port of Quepos and the National Park.Since 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 take the trail to Cathedral Point, do not forget your camera; the views of the park and the sea are simply spectacular!Finally, enjoy the perfect sunset on a scenic drive back to your Costa Rica hotel.
