• Manuel Antonio, beach
  • Overview

    Manuel Antonio is considered to be the smallest of any of the Costa Rican national parks, but is also one the country’s most popular visitor attractions and one of the most beautiful nature reserves in the world. The diversity of its wildlife is outstanding with 109 species of mammals and no fewer than 184 species of birds. Sloths, both two and three-toed, Costa Rica’s four native monkeys, numerous iguanas, snakes, frogs and bats. Toucans, parakeets, woodpeckers and hawks are there, and dolphins and migrating whales may be observed too – the rainforest hillsides sweep down to meet the sandy white beaches of the Pacific Ocean: four beaches are contained within the borders of the park. Scuba diving, snorkelling, sea kayaking, mountain biking, and hiking provide just some of the opportunities to enrich your visit.
