You might know that Costa Rica is a country where you can see all sorts of eco systems, lots of different animal species and beautiful black and white sanded beaches. The best part is that in some places you can see it all at once. Manuel Antonio National Park is one of those places plus it is surrounded by lots of restaurants, luxury hotels, spas, and a great night life.
To visit this area and get to know it you will need a lot more than just a short day visit. I recommend a stay of at least 2 nights in the town of Quepos. Here is where you will find most of the hotels and restaurants. Plus this town is really close to the Manuel Antonio National Park.

History of the Park
The story of this place started as a place filled with banana plantations, but it has evolved to become one of Costa Rica’s most popular destinations. However the whole area is known for being home to the amazing Manuel Antonio beach, tropical forests and over 100 animal species such as monkeys and sloths. It is also the smallest national park of Costa Rica.
