Manuel Antonio National Park and Beach

Manuel Antonio National Park and Beach

This national park is one of the most beautiful in Costa Rica due to its combination of gorgeous beaches with crystal-clear water and coral reef surrounded by a lush, beautiful tropical rain forest. These beaches are considered among the most beautiful around the country, where scuba diving and surfing are very popular.

Our tours begins early in the morning through green mountains and typical towns around the Central Valley to the farmland coast of the Central Pacific, passing by multiple rivers where we highlight the Tarcoles River, home to reptiles, like crocodiles, that deserve a stop for a few pictures during the trip on the Southern Coastal Highway. The view will be absolutely wonderful, blending mountains and ocean points of view. We will take in African Palms and typical towns until we get to Manuel Antonio National Park.

Upon our arrival, we will hike though the rain forest on natural trails until we get the beach, where you can swim or if you prefer, to keep walking though the trails where you can enjoy the flora and fauna, particularly, different species of monkeys, raccoons, iguanas, birds and sloths. One of the trails goes by the Punta Catedral (Cathedral Point), where the view of the forest and the ocean is simply spectacular.

After the experience of this mystic natural paradise, sun and ocean, we will have a great lunch to start our journey back to the capital.
