What to do in MA on Monday??

Im about to leave for Costa Rica, and by sunday night we will be arriving in Manuel Antonio. I know the park (and the beach???) is closed on monday, so what else can we do that day??

I was thinking maybe a mangrove tour, or the catamaran tour????

What tours/activities would you recommend and with what company???

I agree, beach day outside the park and maybe some surfing lessons! If not, you could do the mangrove boat tour, the canopy tour, you could go horseback riding or take the ATV tour. Monday will definitively not be enough! Pura vida!

Zip lining with Canopy Safari or horseback riding with Finca Valmy are both excellent options.

Mangrove tour as well.

If nature is your interest, a visit to the Butterfly Preserve would be an option. If you're a cook, you could spend a couple hours at the Villa Vanilla and learn how vanilla, cinnamon, and cocoa are grown and produced. Among the other spices grown there are pepper, allspice, cardamom, tumeric, and patchouli. You'll also probably get some good closeup views of toucans.

You can hang out at the public beach. Youc an rent chairs on the beach and even boogie boards. There are many vendors lined up along the street there selling artisan jewelry and t shirts. You can also go into Quepos and get a touch of like in a small Costa Rican town. I like to visit the restaurant Quepoa across from the bus station and at the taxi stand and have a beern and ceviche to people watch. There are some little shops there, other restaurants and bars.

You can visit The Rainmaker rainforest preserve. The tour will pick you up and take you about 20 minutes from Quepos to this reserve. You will walk along ver long suspension bridges in the canopy. The guides are very knowledgable especially Lorenzo who was born in an indiginous family in the mountains. At the end you get to swim in the 3rd cleanest water tested in the world at a waterfall.

We were just in Manuel Antonio a couple of weeks ago. We went to Quepos in the morning and spent the evening at the Fincas Naturales night tour. We considered going to their butterfly garden in the morning but decided to just check out the local town instead.
