Manuel Antonio National Park From Jacó

Select Date and Travellers
2 travellers
    What to Expect
    Discover why Manuel Antonio National Park is a favorite destination for visitors to Costa Rica. After morning pickup from your Jaco, Punta Leone or Fiesta Resort hotel, enjoy a scenic drive down the Central Pacific coast, passing through African palm plantations and small villages along the way.
    Vehicles are not allowed in park in order to protect its fragile ecosystem, so you’ll leave the van behind at the town of Quepos for a short walk through the jungle and across a creek. Once inside the reserve, you’ll be greeted by an expanse of crystal-clear water lapping up against a gorgeous stretch of white sandy beach. 
    The day is yours to spend as you please. Join your guide on a nature hike through the surrounding rain forest to learn about abundant native plant species and spot local wildlife such as capuchin monkeys, sloths, iguanas, coatis and tropical birds. Hike along a trail towards the Cathedral Point outcropping for splendid panoramic views of the park.
    You can also choose to relax on the beach and soak up the tropical sun, either after your hike or all day. Cool off with a refreshing swim in the crystal-clear water. Midday, enjoy a picnic lunch of fresh Costa Rican cuisine. As the sun begins to fall, hike back out of the park and enjoy the scenic return drive to your hotel.

    To start we had a great tour guide who was passionate about the national park. Perhaps you don't need one but I would recommend you do. So five sloths, all the varieties of monkeys local top the park, and plenty of birds and calming noises....More

    wide variety of things to do. Can be overwhelming finding a place to park. Many "official" looking attendents directing you. Go past them and get as close as you can to the entrance, then work you way back out if needed. Somewhat hard to find...More

    The tour van picked us up at our hotel and drove to the park. The guide was most experienced with knowing where to locate wildlife up in the trees (monkeys, sloths, birds). One comment on the tour guide, very opinionated when it comes to politics....More
