Manuel Antonio National Park
Costa Rica’s Manuel Antonio is a riot of colour; kingfishers dart along crystal clear streams, toucans and scarlet macaws perch overhead, turquoise waves crash onto immaculate white sands, coral reefs teem with marine life and emerald tropical rainforest mingles with lime-green palms. Despite being the country’s smallest national park, Manuel Antonio’s wildlife is unparalleled.
As you kayak, raft, hike and mountain bike through the rainforest, look out for coatimundi, sloth, the tiny Squirrel monkey and the white-headed capuchin monkey as they peer out curiously from the foliage.
