Manuel Antonio National Park

Manuel Antonio National Park’s long, sandy beaches fringed by forest are much photographed. The park includes lagoons, mangrove swamps and 12 small islands.
Reasons to visit Manuel Antonio National Park include:

  • It's the smallest national park in Costa Rica, but it has a high density of animals and birds.
  • A network of marked trails can be explored alone or with a naturalist guide.
  • Cathedral Point is connected to the mainland by a narrow land bridge. You'll be rewarded with great views.
  • There are 4 beaches, Espadilla Sur, Manuel Antonio, Escndito and Playita. These are among the best beaches in Costa Rica.
  • Manuel Antonio is one of the last remaining natural habitats for squirrel monkeys in Costa Rica.
  • Bird enthusiasts can expect to see toucans, parrots as well as kingfishers and pelicans.
  • Mammals found here include two-toed sloths, coati and agouti, alongside white-faced capuchins.
