I get so many inquiries about Manuel Antonio. Most of them ask, “is it worth the trip?”
Besides the gorgeous hotels, delicious restaurants and a full batch of activities and tours that will ignite a fire under the most laziest traveler, Manuel Antonio National Park will astound you with nature, wildlife and the full-on tropical experience.
You don’t have to believe me, see for yourself!
These are the animals I found on my own. We also splurged a bit and hired a naturalistic guide. Let me tell you, it was worth every penny! It’s as though they have some crazy sixth sense in spotting the most obscure animals. We saw bats tucked deep into huge tree holes sleeping during the day. We spotted birds that I would never have noticed. And as much as I’m NOT a fan of insects, he did point out some insanely huge ones, yet harmless, perched on trees and branches.
The way I look at it, if you’re going to come all the way here, might as well get the whole EXPERIENCE!
