Description:

Manuel Antonio National Park is considered one of the most beautiful parks...

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 of 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.

So I booked my tour a month before coming to Costa Rica through the Grayline website. I emailed with the company back and forth because I'm taking my infant son and they needed his age and after getting it all settled I get my vouchers, print them and think everything is done as they told me all was confirmed. So... More

My husband and I booked from San Jose. It is a very long ride, bus is small but comfy. The bus ride took 3 hours. They do stop at about the half way point for a traditional costa rican breakfast, which was great. Near the restaurant we walked over to see the natural habitat of the crocodiles. We passed three...

Manuel Antonio is anot absolutely beautiful town. The national park there is very nice and the beach is great. Nearby in Quepos is a new marina with restaurants and shops. Manuel Antonio is incredible.

Drive was pretty brutal, as our driver hit the gas and let off continually the entire trip. She also talked the entire time with the guide (seriously did not pause or seem to take a breath for 3 hours straight). Beach was amazing, the water was warm. Don't feed the animals, even though the monkeys are super friendly and adorable!... More

The drive from San Jose is long, but well worth the visit to Manuel Antonio National Park. The beauty is unsurpassed and the guide did an excellent job at pointing out various animals. We saw several monkeys, a sloth (including one that was relatively close to the trail), an iguana, and a few other lizards and birds, etc. The raccoons... More

Wanted to do a day trip to Manuel Antonio from Puerto Viejo. Expediciones Tropicales was the tour operator but it was reserved through Grey Line Costa Rica. We were picked up at 6:15am from our hotel. We rode on the bus for approximately 1.5 hours and the whole time the guide George/Jorge would not stop talking. Granted people want to... More

We used Gray Line while staying jn Jacó and San Jose and were never disappointed. Their prices are a bit steep but they really go all-out to give you the best, most comprehensive experience!!
