Manuel Antonio National Park is considered one of the most beautiful areas of Costa Rica. It combines a beach with crystal clear waters with coral reefs, bordered by lush and humid tropical vegetation. Its beaches are counted among the best in the country, where diving and surfing are very well known.

On the way to the Manuel Antonio National Park, you will sail along the coast allowing you to appreciate a panoramic view and pass through the plantations of African palm trees. You will also travel behind photogenic villages along the Pacific Coast, until you reach the Port of Quepos and the National Park.

Since the park is closed to vehicles, you walk to the reserve by crossing a stream. Once in the park, you can simply relax and enjoy the beach, sunbathe, or join a nature walk on park trails, which will allow you to observe the park's abundant flora and fauna. In particular, several species of monkeys, iguanas, birds and possibly even the three-toed sloth can be seen. One of the trails circles Cathedral Point, where the view of the park and the sea is spectacular.
