On the way to Manuel Antonio along the coastal line, you will enjoy nice views and will be crossing plantations of African palm and picturesque villages along the Pacific coast, until you reach the port of Quepos and few minutes after the National Park.
At our arrival we will hike to the park, crossing a creek to access the park, since this park is closed to vehicles. Once at the park, it is possible to simply enjoy the beach, take a sun bath, or a nature walk though the park’s trails, which will allow you to observe the abundant flora and fauna of the park, especially several species of monkeys, iguanas, birds, and maybe, the three toe sloth.
