This tour is very popular as it includes a visit to one of the most famous parks on the Central Pacific coast. The park is in Quepos, about a one hour drive in our fully equipped air conditioned van. Costa Rica D Tours will pick you up at your hotel whether in Hermosa, Jaco or Heradura and drive you South to your destination. During the drive to Manuel Antonio National Park you will enjoy scenes including the greenery of Costa Rica’s landscapes and the tropical beaches along the way.
At the park there are trails where the Costa Rican flora and fauna can be observed in their natural habitat. It is a place where the rainforest meets the expansive white beaches; this creates a mix of ecosystems which contains a high number of birds and mammals. As you walk the trails there is a good chance of seeing various species of monkeys, sloths, coati mundi (raccoon like mammal), huge green iguanas, lizards, tree frogs, toucans, scarlet macaws, parrots and many other native species. After walking in the trails in the Manuel Antonio National Park visitors may sit down to a typical Costa Rican lunch at one of the local restaurants known as “sodas”. Here you will be able to try the most common lunch in Costa Rica known as a “casado”, it consists in rice, beans, meat of your choice, salad and ripe plantains, along with a fresh fruit juice from local varieties.
After lunch you will be able to relax on the beach and enjoy the cool tropical breeze. Make sure you take your bathing suit as swimming is a must in the beautiful clear waters of the Pacific Ocean. Here at the Manuel Antonio National Park it is a place where the blue ocean water, the white sand beaches and the green forest all come together, making it a piece of paradise.
After a fun day of adventure the van will be waiting to drive you back to your hotel, delivering you safe and sound. Costa Rica D’Tour hopes that you have added to your memories for life after this amazing expedition.
