Manuel Antonio

Manuel Antonio National Park

Although the Manuel Antonio National Park is Costa Rica’s smallest—just over 4,000 acres—it’s one of the most popular.

This park’s beaches are the finest in the Central Pacific region, offering gentle waves, clear water and pale sand that’s perfect for castle building.

Visitors hike forest trails to hidden beaches and lookouts. Offshore you’ll find a reef and a dozen islands frequented by dolphins and migrating Humpback whales.

Birdwatching and Wildlife Tours

Manuel Antonio protects more than 100 species of mammals and 180 species of birds.

Marquee fauna includes:

  • Mantled Howler Monkeys
  • Central American Squirrel Monkeys
  • White-headed Capuchins
  • Three-toed and Two-toed Sloths
  • Caimans
  • Toucans

Coatis and raccoons are also common, so guard your lunch!
