In February 2018, The Manuel Antonio National Park in Quepos, Puntarenas, has opened a brand new universal trail for those with limited mobility and the trail is wheelchair friendly! The new trail goes from the main national park entrance down to the Espadilla Sur beach.
“El Manglar” (The Mangrove) is the name of the new elevated trail that has a length of 784 meters (2,572 feet) and is 2.4 meters wide (7.87 feet). It was built over a mangrove, hence the name, in an area of the park that wasn’t accessible to the tourists before. The path leads to Espadilla Sur Beach and connects with other existing trails.
The new trail was built and donated by the Engineering and Construction Department of ICE (Instituto Costarricense de Electricidad), and it complies with Law 7600, Equal Opportunities Law for People with Disabilities. It has 10 bays that have information in Braille, describing the characteristics and attractions of each area of the park.
