Manuel Antonio beach
The Pacific coast around Manuel Antonio is particularly beautiful, with wonderful beaches fringed with tropical forest. Here, the verdant hills roll into the ocean, with beautiful white sandy beaches and warm waters for swimming. Temperatures reach 30ºC all year. It can rain throughout the year, especially from May to November, although mornings are usually sunny.
The Manuel Antonio National Park is the smallest national park in Costa Rica, only 6 square miles, and the jungle has much wildlife, including sloths, coatis, monkeys, toucans and macaws. The trails are well maintained, and guided tours are available locally, or you can wander on your own. The beaches in the national park are the best in the area, and there are also a number of good beaches outside of the national park. Most of the beaches are safe for swimming, but some have strong currents, so ask if you are unsure as there are no lifeguards on duty.
The nearby town of Quepos has some good restaurants and bars and you can arrange sports fishing tours. Snorkelling excursions, ocean kayaking, mangrove tours and canopy tours are also available.
If you are undecided about visiting Manuel Antonio or Corcovado during your holiday to Costa Rica, read our blog to help you decide.
