Manuel Antonio National Park

Manuel Antonio National Park

Manuel Antonio National Park—voted by Forbes in 2011 as one of the World’s Most Beautiful National Parks—is a must-visit while staying with us. The views from the hills overlooking Manuel Antonio are spectacular, the beaches are idyllic, and its jungles are inhabited by a stunning diversity of wildlife, including howler, white-faced, and squirrel monkeys, two and three toed sloths, vibrantly colored frogs, songbirds, and much more. As well, you’ll experience the park’s large variety of different ecosystems, which include fresh water lagoons, mangroves, beaches, coral reefs, littoral islands, rocky cliffs, herbaceous swamps and more. Endemic to the area is a species of primate, the red-backed squirrel monkey, only found on the Pacific Coast of Costa Rica. An easy-to-navigate system of walking trails offers you the chance to experience the natural world up-close with extraordinary views.

Arenas Del Mar has a experienced naturalists department that offers group and private guided tours of the national park. For more information click here
