We stayed at the Villas Caletas and from there it was only a couple of KM away from the entrance of the park. The park is really a beautiful rainforest in which you can find all kinds of animals (like scarlet macaws, iguanas and whitefaced monkeys. It is quite peaceful here and much better than Manual Antonio!
I would to suggest that take a guide with you otherwise you miss most what is going on in th epark (also applicable for the other parks in CR).
