Full description
Discover Manuel Antonio National Park, one of the main touristic destinations in Costa Rica. Be picked up from your San Jose hotel in the morning, then enjoy a scenic drive toward the Central Pacific Region of the country in an air-conditioned vehicle.

En your way to Manuel Antonio, stop to have breakfast in a local restaurant located next to the biggest fruit market in the country, where you'll be able to observe the large variety of tropical fruits in Costa Rica. Once in Manuel Antonio, hike the rainforest trails of the national park with your guide for about 1 hour, and search for local wild animals commonly observed here, like monkeys, sloths, toucans, agoutis, and more.

After hiking, enjoy free time to relax on the pristine beaches of the Manuel Antonio National Park, swim in the warm waters of the Pacific Ocean, or continue hiking on the longer rainforest trails in the park. The longer trails are a little challenging, but they provide amazing lookout points with views of islands and coves along the beautiful coastline, as well as further opportunity to observe more of the local wildlife.

Next, savor a delicious typical lunch in a restaurant that provides great jungle and ocean views, the perfect environment to enjoy your meal. After lunch, start your journey back to San Jose, making a few interesting stops on the way to see the best of the Pacific Regions of Costa Rica.

Stop first at the Jaco Bay lookout point and take pictures of Costa Rica’s most popular coastal town. Then, search for scarlet macaws in their natural habitat on Tarcoles Beach, a common sight in the area. Make your final stop at the popular crocodile bridge, where you will have the chance to observe one of Costa Rica’s biggest crocodile’s populations. After this, you will be taken back to your hotel in San Jose.
