Walking tour is definitely better with a guide. We would have missed much of the wildlife otherwise. On the tram ride, were fortunate to see sloths (sadly at a distance) and beautiful toucans and parrots in flight. A stop at the beach was a welcome treat. It was beautiful and not very crowded - no beach umbrellas, but several picnic... More

Definitely go with a guide. They can find all kinds of hidden creatures. We saw a few sloths and lots of monkeys and other lizards and such. A nice break at the beach. Our guide was very knowledgeable about all the animals. We enjoyed this tour very much.

Before taking your rental vehicle, and getting duped as many have been by false 'officials', please read our experience. We had a great time because we were forewarned of the circus prior to getting to our parking destination. Now, take a deep breath, hold it, count to 3, and exhale out. Our hired chef lives in Quepos and coached us.... More

This was our 3rd guided park tour in Costa Rica. Because of the endless crowds you cannot really enjoy the nature . Also we heard for the 3rd time the difference between 2 and 3 toe sloths etc . The few animals you see only through the scope of the guide. The resort we stayed in (Arenas Del mar) gave... More

Well, getting there is half the fun. As another post mentioned earlier we were initially scammed into parking by men with clipboards and fake id badges because apparently the next lot was full. When we declined a guide the next lot was mysteriously open all of a sudden and we were told to move on. So back in the rental... More

My wife and I had been to the Park five years previous, but had not taken a tour. As we wanted to be sure to see the plants and animals and have them explained to us, we decided to go on a guided tour. Had we not, we wouldn't have seen half of what was pointed out nor known half... More

Social trust is a belief in the honesty, integrity and reliability of others basically “faith in people.” There was NONE here at Manuel Antonio Park. We arrived via our rental car and were forced to park along the PUBLIC highway (1 mile from the park) and then asked to pay $6 to a FAKE official wearing a FAKE park uniform... More

We had very knowledgeable guides Nathan and Edwin. We were very lucky to have two guides, Nathan, and then Edwin as a guide in training. Both were very skilled guides. They were absolutely essential to appreciate and experience the wildlife in the park. Nathan had a keen ability to sight wildlife and then explain many interesting details about the wildlife...

Our guide, Aaron, could spot wildlife - from spiders, lizards and snakes to sloths, birds and monkeys which none of us detected with the naked eye. He set up his scope, and we could all view them. He also helped us take photos through the scope with our cell phones, and thanks to his expertise they came out very well.... More
