While the Manuel Antonio National Park may be Costa Rica’s smallest park, it’s filled with so much to see and do! Listed by Forbes as one of the 12 most beautiful national parks in 2011, it was quickly developed to accommodate tourists from around the world and is considered one of Central America’s natural jewels.

Exotic Landscapes of Costa Rica
5 - Excellent
  • Anonymous
  • From Costa Rica
“Oldemar and his team are amazing. This package was wonderful including mostly private transports, awesome staff at all tours and hotels. I totally enjoyed the high intensity outdoor events. (Many not the night zip lining for novices). The guide was terrific though and I made it though. I would definitely recommend this package and company. The 9 day package was just as impressive as the 15 day one was for Jamie. CR does tourism right!”
The tour operator responded
“We are glad to know Oldemar and our staff took very good care of you .. Thank you for your comments and for sharing your experience with others..”

  • Jamie McGinnis
“I cannot say enough about Oldemar and his team. We bought our plane tickets and thats it! They handled everything else for 15 days!!! We visited Tamarindo, Monteverde, La Fortuna, Arenal, Tortuguero, Puerto Viejo and San Jose. We were there in rainy season, and had private van transfers to each location. Oldemar, Pablo, and Oscar were especially amazing Costa Ricans, and we met countless others. We had dozens of transfers, adventure boat rides, excursions, day and night hikes, horseback rides to waterfalls, nature hikes, zip lines, hanging bridges, and a special late night trip to watch the giant sea turtles lay their eggs. Amazing!!! CRs are very proud that their teachers and professors are their army, since theyve had no military in over 70 years. Education and health care are free. They have between 3-6% of the worlds biodiversity - birds, snakes, frogs, monkeys, sloths, and so many more. Pay attention that the rainy season means it rains (sometimes HARD) and is very humid! What a wonderful trip!! You can trust this company 1000%”
The tour operator responded
“thanks Jamie for such a great review. it is great to know that you enjoyed the trip from start to end .. This kind of comment keep us improving day by day to provide the visitors with the best services. Thank you for letting us be part of your experience ..Pura vida !!”

Manuel Antonio National Park - Tour Highlights and Travel Tips

Tour Highlights

  • The national park itself consists of rainforests, beaches, and beautiful coral reefs. Mostly undeveloped land except for around the city and coastline, you can find many wild animals including some wild squirrel monkeys, capuchin monkeys, iguanas, red eyed green tree frogs and many more.
  • Of course, the beach is the most famous place to see in Manual Antonio, it’s just as beautiful underwater. You can join tour groups heading out into the waters for snorkeling and diving, or, if you want to go further out and see if you can catch anything, there are plenty of fishing groups that you can join.
  • While Costa Rica is known for having ziplines all around the jungle, in Manuel Antonio, you can zipline from one after the other taking you deep into the forest. The largest zip lines in the forest have 16 zips in a row.

Travel Tips

  • When entering the park, you are not allowed to bring food as it will attract unwanted wildlife. Additionally, the monkeys may often jump at you if they see food. The rangers will search your bags prior to you entering the park.
  • Petty theft is known to happen by racoons and monkeys. So make sure to keep an eye on your belongings. 
  • Taking the bus here is the cheapest option comapred to driving yourself. The parking alone often costs more than the bus, so why not skip the hassle of having to drive?
