Manuel Antonio National Park is home to 109 species of mammals, 184 species of birds, and an uncountable variety of reptiles, insects and plants. It is difficult to walk very far in the park without encountering some of its fascinating wildlife. Additionally, Manuel Antonio National Park offers spectacular views of the ocean and nearby islands of Costa Rica. We are far from alone in considering it one of the more beautiful spots on Earth.
Just outside of this Costa Rica park is a huge, white sand Costa Rica beach prized by surfers, swimmers and sun-worshippers alike. This beach in Costa Rica offers a variety of activities, including Jet Ski rentals, Banana boat rides, and mangrove tours in Manuel Antonio Costa Rica.
From the North end of this Costa Rica beach, the area’s curvy but well maintained main road leads up a steep hill. About two and a half kilometers (about 1.6 miles) up the hill, several restaurants offer a view of one of the most spectacular sunsets on the planet. This entire area is full of Costa Rica hotels, restaurants and bars and casinos offering an active night life in Manuel Antonio to those who want it.
Still further North is the town of Quepos, famous mostly for its sport fishing in Manuel Antonio. The cheapest accommodations in Manuel Antonio are available here, along with several Costa Rica restaurants and numerous tour operations.
The most secluded and most beautiful beaches in Manuel Antonio are in the Park itself. There are two of them and both are easily accessible from this Costa Rica National Park‘s entrance. The one closer to the entrance is usually emptier, but the more crowded, farther Manuel Antonio beach – still only a five minute walk from the entrance – surrounds a cove, which provides remarkably still water.
Manuel Antonio in Costa Rica has become a heavily visited area. The area boasts dozens of Costa Rica hotels and resorts which are frequently sold out. As a result, prices are higher here than in most of Costa Rica. However, there are cheap Costa Rica meals still to be had, mostly notably in Quepos.
