Only 1-hour South of Jaco and Los Suenos, Manuel Antonio National Park and Wildlife preserve is one of Costa Rica’s most prized natural treasures. Your drive to the Manuel Antonio region offers spectacular views of the Rainforest Mountain ranges as well as passing through the largest Giant Palm tree plantation in the world.
Scenic Manuel Antonio National Park is a perfect combination of warm Pacific waters and rainforest that grows right down to the three white sand beaches. Nature trails take you along the beach strand and over a forested, rocky promontory. This park, in the humid tropical zone, protects several habitats, including primary relative isolation and secondary forest, mangroves, beach vegetation and marine resources. Because of its relative isolation and small size it is probably one of the easiest places in Costa Rica to see wildlife, particularly sloth’s, coatimundis, agoutis, White-faced Monkeys and the tiny Squirrel Monkey. There is no development inside the National Park. Dozens of small hotels surrounded by trees and lush tropical gardens line the 7 kilometers (4 miles) of cliff top road leading to Manuel Antonio.
You’ll be escorted by a National Park Guide who will bring you up close and personal with the variety of wildlife, including many animals you might never have noticed. Enjoy the white sand beaches and Turquoise blue waters that surround the park. Tours through this park offer incredible photo opportunities as well a unique experience interacting up close & personal with Costa Rican wildlife.
