About Manuel Antonio
A Tropical Paradise awaits you
Manuel Antonio is the jewel of the Pacific Coast that is home to one of the top beaches in the world located within Manuel Antonio National Park. It is one of the smallest parks in Costa Rica but it is the most visited due to its varied fauna with 109 species of mammals and 184 of birds.
This park is just south of Quepos on the Pacific Coast, 132 km from San José. It is so popular because of its expansive white sand beaches backed by an evergreen forest that grows right up to the high tide line. The town of Manuel Antonio is small but host several hideaway hotels and luxury vacation rentals. In this small town, you can enjoy the fresh fruits and veggies from the “feria” (weekly market), have a five star meal at many of the restaurants, hire a private chef to cook for you or mix in with the locals and join them eating a “casado”(typical Costa Rican meal) at any of the “sodas”(little local restaurants).
Whether you are a wildlife lover, adventure seeker or you just want to be a beach bum, the array of activities is endless and you can book several tours to help you enjoy your tropical paradise vacation. Contact us to assist in planning an unforgettable experience.
Maybe you are wondering…. Why hire a guide to visit the Park?
A unique experience … this is what customers describe in their comments.
Small groups of 8-10 passenger’s maximum, this makes the customer service personalized by receiving full information on the flora, fauna, history of the park and information on the culture of the area. Using your telescopes, observing animals is much easier. If you want to observe a particular animal, tell the guide and he will make it come true. Through their telescopes the guides will take incredible photos of the flora and fauna of the Park.
