National Park. Natural Wonder.

Manuel Antonio National Park’s 1,685 acres boast some of the country’s most varied and breathtaking scenery. Surrounded by lush tropical forest, the park’s trails offer sightings of white-faced monkeys, sloths, coatis, raccoons, iguanas and many bird species, as well as the Costa Rican squirrel monkey (Saimiri oerstedii citrinellus), which is endemic to Manuel Antonio—that is, it is found only in this part of the world. Increasingly endangered, at last count these monkeys numbered only 1,500.

The park beaches are breathtaking, shaded in many areas by not only sweeping coconut palms but towering hardwoods. You'll find it commonplace to view white-faced monkeys scurrying to and from the beach floor among this bordering tree canopy.

The park also protects 12 islands that serve as excellent refuges for several seabird species, as well as several stunning beaches (Espadilla Sur, Manuel Antonio and Puerto Escondido), a 14-hectare lagoon and a mangrove swamp. Connecting Manuel Antonio and Espadilla Sur beaches, Punta Catedral is a place of great natural beauty. Visitor services include information, a park ranger station, trails, restrooms, drinking water, signage and several natural viewpoints.
