Manuel Antonio National Park

Manuel Antonio is one of the most visited parks in Costa Rica. If you’re lucky, you may have the chance to spot howler, white face, and titi monkeys, sloths, raccoons, and frogs all while learning about their diet, habits, and many more facts about the variety of species that live there. Upon arrival at the park, you will meet and enter the facilities with your tour guide. The hike with the guide will last around 2 hours, starting at the entrance of the park at around 8:30 am and ending once you reach the beach at around 10:30 am. After the guided hike is over, the guide will leave you so you can enjoy the beach by yourselves. You must exit the park by yourselves as well, the walk from the beach to the exit will take you around 30 minutes. The driver will be waiting to meet you outside of the park at around 12:00-12:30 pm to take you to lunch. The lunch stop usually lasts around 1 hour. Once you are done with your meal, the driver will start heading back to the hotel.
