Overnight in MA from Dominical


We will be staying with our two kids (6 and 4) in Dominical for two weeks. I was wondering is it worth the extra cost to spend a night or two at MA instead of just driving up to visit the park?

Thank You!

Manuel Antonio is very unique.....just like Dominical is......and spending two nights here would be worth it.....instead of just driving up to visit the park and return......enjoy the park and the beautiful beaches......plus take a tour thru the mangroves.......your kids will love it!

As Dave said, there is plenty to do in MA. You will enjoy the calmer beaches, park and activities. Check out Playa Biesanz while you are there for snorkeling. It would also be nice for a change of pace and scenery.

Manuel Antonio with the new road is only about 40 minutes drive from Dominical, I sometimes just go there for lunch.

It's probably a little closer to 50 minutes to an hour for most tourists, but definitely an easy and accessible drive.

Whether you choose to visit it as a day-trip or spend a night or two is really a matter of personal preference, budget and vacation goals.

I drove at the speed limit yesterday to Dominical and it was 25 mins from the Quepos airport. Super easy, very fast, so just drive up as needed! Enjoy!
