Full description

Discover Manuel Antonio National Park, a small biological island established in 1972 by the Costa Rican government to preserve its precious wildlife.

Though Manuel Antonio National Park is the smallest park in the country, it’s also the most visited due to its charming combination of rain forests, beaches, coral reefs, and wildlife.

After being picked up from your hotel by your excerpt driver-guide, get ready to explore a diverse range of fauna spanning 109 species of mammals and 184 birds.

As you explore, look out for raccoons, coatis, agoutis, sloths, white-faced monkeys, howler monkeys, and the famous Titi monkey, an endangered subspecies unique to the park.

Be led by your guide on a breathtaking walking tour through the jungle and experience the secrets and wonders of this amazing ecosystem.

See kingfishers, the yellow crowned night heron and many more bird species. Benefit from assistance taking high-quality nature photos using your own digital camera combined with professional telescopes provided on the tour.

Our guide Edgar was able to spot animals I never would have noticed otherwise. They use a scope on a tripod so then you can look through and see the animal close up, even if they are way up in the trees. He was able to take video and pics with our phones through the scope so we have close up pics of the animals. We saw sloths, monkeys (saw close up), lizards, snakes, and a toucan.

BOOK THIS! I wasn't sure if having a guide to explore the National Park was worth it, especially since I prefer doing things on my own. I am so glad I decided to book this. There is NO WAY we would have been able to spot so many animals on our way. Our guide, Jorge, went out of his way to take his time and find animals everywhere with the professional binoculars that he was carrying, and he was able to help us take pictures of all of the animals too. You can walk around aimlessly trying to figure out where there are animals in the wilderness, or you can book a guide who not only can explain everything to you but can even spot animals that are camouflaged that no inexperienced eye could find.

Fabio was an excellent guide! He knew so much about all the animals and we saw monkeys, sloths, crabs, bats, several colours of iguanas, chameleons, exotic birds and more! He was very friendly and tried to take us to the more quiet areas as we went on a very very busy weekend - brilliant all round we 10/10
