We arrived at around 7 a.m. and got parking really close which is nice as it's quite a walk in the park to the beach. It was also good to get there early as it got really busy as the day went on. Saw howler monkeys, capuchin monkeys, sloth, deer and baby, the famous Blue Morpho butterflies and others.Great beaches here and some snorkelling. The park is quite nice but the drive thru the streets of Manuel Antonio is really busy even before 7 a.m. The signage to the park is not good but this seems to often be the norm for Costa Rica. One of those things we were glad we did but probably wouldn't do it again.
