Full description
This tour provides a perfect combination of nature, wildlife and pristine beaches. Explore the park on foot, or just relax and sunbathe on the beach in this beautiful national park. Manuel Antonio National Park is considered one of the most beautiful parks in Costa Rica. On this tour, you will visit heavenly beaches with clear water and coral reefs, bordered by exuberant vegetation and the natural wonders of the tropical rainforest. Its beaches are counted among the best in the country, where snorkeling and the surfing are very popular. On the way to Manuel Antonio National Park, you will travel along the coastline enjoying scenic views and crossing plantations of African palms. You’ll also travel past small villages along the Pacific Coast, until you reach the port of Quepos and the National Park. Since the park itself is closed to vehicles, you will hike to the preserve, crossing a creek. Once in the park, you can simply relax and enjoy the beach, sunbathe or hike through the park's trails, which will allow you to observe Manuel Antonio’s abundant flora and fauna. Several species of monkeys, iguanas, birds and possibly even the three-toed sloth can be seen. If you chose to take the trail to Cathedral Point, do not forget your camera; the views of the park and the sea are simply spectacular! Finally, enjoy the perfect sunset on a scenic drive back to your Costa Rica hotel.

The trip is somewhat long, so if there are few people on the Tour, they have small transport which makes the trip much more tedious, the regular food is nothing special, the well-kept park, sightings of the animals very close to the visitors, the Excellent beaches, I do not recommend reserving this activity on Sunday, the intense, very heavy return traffic

Place was wonderful but guide wasn’t helpful

So much nice reviews on greyline made me choose this trip. Trip was alright but guide was very disappointing. Once we arrive the national park, Maria showed us map, told us where we supposed to be after ‘we enjoy whatever we want’ and left us for next 3 hours. At the very moment we want the guide the most coz we finally there and about to explore the park. She didn’t lead us to the trail, tell us how different each trail is or help us spotting animals while walking trails together. For the time she disappeared we had to manage our own. I felt it was unnormal from my experience of other trip like Arenal Volcano walking trip.
