What You Can Expect
Accessible only by foot, Manuel Antonio National Park is a protected tropical reserve featuring white sandy beaches, lush rainforest and crystal-clear turquoise water. Your full-day tour of this tropical paradise begins with early morning pickup from your San Jose hotel to maximize your time at the park. Stop for breakfast along the way, and enjoy the scenic drive past picturesque villages and the dramatic scenery of the Pacific coastline.
Hop out of the air-conditioned vehicle at the park entrance near the port of Quepos. No vehicles are allowed inside Manuel Antonio to preserve the area?s natural beauty and delicate ecosystem. Enjoy an easy, flat hike through the rainforest to arrive at a gorgeous crescent-shaped beach. The afternoon is yours to spend as you wish. Drop a towel and soak up the sun along the beach?s pristine white sand, and cool off with a swim in the clear, warm waters of the Pacific.
Wander through jungle trails on your own, or join a guided nature hike to learn about the park?s incredible biodiversity. Be prepared to encounter many wild residents, including monkeys, sloths, tropical birds, and iguanas. Get your blood pumping with a hike to Cathedral Point, where you can soak in a breathtaking perspective of the ocean, shore, and forest. Depart the park before dusk, and watch a memorable sunset over the Pacific on the return drive to your San Jose hotel.
