Attractions: Manuel Antonio Nationalpark

No other destination in Costa Rica has received more international attention than Manuel Antonio. The views from the hills overlooking Manuel Antonio are spectacular, the beaches inside the park are idyllic, and its jungles are crawling with curious monkeys, among other forms of exotic wildlife such as iguanas, three-toed sloths and hundreds of other species of birds, mammals and plants. The water invites for swimming and snorkeling. Before the entrance to the national park is a long public beach, there´s no entrance fee. There are some shops by the water that rent boogie boards, beach chairs and beach umbrellas. There are also several beachside restaurants which offer affordable, good meals.
