One day tour Manuel Antonio from San José

One day tour Manuel Antonio from San José

Our tour begins in the morning crossing the mountains that surround the central valley using the main road that connects the capital with the coastal area. Once we pass the mountain range we will have a delicious typical Costa Rican breakfast in a restaurant in the Pacific area on the banks of the Tárcoles River.

On our trip to the park we will take the Costanera Sur highway, enjoying beautiful views of the ocean, African palm plantations and picturesque towns along the Pacific coast until we reach the Port of Quepos and from there continue towards the National Park.

Initially, we will hike through the rainforest along a natural trail in the national park until we reach the beach, where you can take a bath, or take a tour of the trails, which will allow us to observe the abundant flora and fauna, particularly various species of monkeys, raccoons, iguanas, birds, and sloths.
