Manuel Antonio National Park Guided Tour
Visit Home to Exotic Animal Species & the Best Beaches in the Region
This relaxed, guided walk through perhaps the most famous—and some say most beautiful—of Costa Rica’s national parks lasts around 2.5 to 3 hours. During this informative hike your guide will tell you all about the area’s history, the rainforest and help you spot many of the animals you can find in this stunning part of the country. Afterwards you can opt to spend the rest of the day at one of the beaches inside the park.
Located just 10-15 minutes from most Manuel Antonio hotels, you will meet your local, bilingual nature guide at the park entrance and then set of on the trails. As you wander in the jungle, be sure to ask about the endangered squirrel monkeys, making a comeback thanks to reforestation and habitat protection projects, and now common to see in the area.
Your guide will help you see many animals that call the park home, such as:
- White-faced Capuchin monkey,
- Red-back squirrel monkey,
- Howler monkeys,
- Two- and three-toed sloths,
- Brilliantly colored land crabs,
- Some species of butterflies,
- Laughing falcons,
- Common black hawks,
- White ibis,
- Five species of kingfisher,
- And fiery billed aracari (toucans)
