“Manual Antonio Beaches”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 4, 2013

This is a beautiful area which can be seen from various hotels around the area but better experienced walking along the water or sitting under the tree canopy along the beaches. There are folks always willing to rent or sell you something, including chair rentals. Be assertive, polite, and say no when you do not want to rent or buy. Bring along sunscreen; you'll need it even at 8:00 AM.

“Beach!!!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 14, 2013

The beach was lovely. The water was warm, clear and beautiful. Be careful of the monkeys they will steal things from your backpack.

“Nice But HOT!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed January 7, 2013

Long walk to La Playita, blazing in the hot sun. You had to wither be in the shade, or in the water.
