This fragile rainforest ecosystem shelters abundant wildlife including easy-to-spot monkeys and a great variety of tropical birds. The dense rainforest opens into small trails where our naturalist tour guide will acquaint you with information about the forest. Another great attraction are the white sand beaches that meet the jungle. Your one hour and thirty-minute guided walk will lead you to the beach where you will have time to go swimming in the warm waters of the Pacific.
Manuel Antonio park protects 683 hectares of tropical rain forest and over a thousand different species of flora. This walk is by far one of the best in Costa Rica, and a great opportunity to get closer to the forest and beach. The trail is very well maintained and is easy walking with no uphill climbs. Another hour of leisurely walking will bring you back to the exit of the park for another chance to spot wildlife.
An optional drop off in the town of Quepos is also available, where you will find several restaurants and shops.
