Owner description: Monkeys, sloths, frogs, and many species of birds call Manuel Antonio National Park their home, so bring your camera for unforgettable wildlife photographs. The park also contains beautiful beaches that offer kayaking, snorkeling, and surfing. Feeling more adventurous? Try rappelling down a waterfall or eating a termite—one TripAdvisor traveler reports they taste like ginger.

We selected Manuel Antonio as our Pacific stop on our first trip to Costa Rica, and so glad we did! The National Park is quite a treasure, and with the beautiful beach and bounty of nature & animals to see, it's no wonder it is one of the most popular parks in Costa Rica. A guided tour of the park will enhance the experience more, as the guides are so knowledgeable and helpful. This is a wondrous national park not to be missed when on the Pacific side of Costa Rica!

SO much of Costa is built up, it seems that you have to go to a Nat'l park to see wildlife. Now, dont get me wrong -YOU WILL SEE WILDLIFE HERE.Monkey, sloths, name it - it's just that EVERYONE knows about it and it can get a bit crowded. Not the parks fault. If you pay the entrance (16.00), you can get to a beach not open to the public which is a nice change of scenery from the public beach (but no venders). WELL worth the visit.

We were recommended to do this visit by some locals and so glad we did. Cost was $16 U.S. each and well worth it. As with any business tour guides are plentiful and you have to shop around and negotiate. We got a great guide (about 2 hours) for $30 US (I tipped $10 more because of his courtesy and vast education of nature he gladly offered. A guide is recommended as they know what trees sloths eat at, where lizards hang out, where the crowd of monkeys are on a particular day as well as carry telescopes that zero in on these creatures which you get pics on your cell phone - also describes certain plants that are currently considered medicinal or cosmetic - well worth it! The numerous beaches are a wonder of the world - we went to Beach #2 and my Lady rated it as the most perfect beach she's ever seen. This entire park is naturally Gov't protected and pristine. We stayed in the park for 1/2 day frolicking on this one of a kind beach. Definitely put this Park on your Costa Rica agenda.

So many sloths and monkeys! beautiful beach with very little wave activity but quite crowded. not much hiking because it is a paved walk which is very easy.
