Full description
On your way to Manuel Antonio, stop to have breakfast in a local restaurant located next to the biggest fruit market in the country where you'll be able to observe the large variety of tropical fruits in Costa Rica. Continue your journey with a stop at the popular crocodile bridge where you will have the chance to observe one of Costa Rica’s biggest crocodile’s populations.    Search for scarlet macaws in their natural habitat on Tarcoles Beach, a common sight in the area. Then, stop at the Jaco Bay lookout point and take pictures of Costa Rica’s most popular coastal town. Once in Manuel Antonio, hike the rainforest trails of the national park with your guide for about 1 hour and search for local wild animals commonly observed here, including monkeys, sloths, toucans, agoutis, and more.   After hiking, enjoy free time to relax on the pristine beaches of the Manuel Antonio National Park, swim in the warm waters of the Pacific Ocean, or continue hiking on the longer rainforest trails in the park. The longer trails are a little challenging, but they provide amazing lookout points with views of islands and coves along the beautiful coastline, as well as further opportunities to observe more of the local wildlife.   Next, savor a delicious typical lunch in a restaurant that provides great jungle and ocean views, the perfect environment to enjoy your meal. Lunch will be served in the early afternoon around 2 PM, after which you will be taken back to your hotel in San Jose.

This tour was amazing! The beaches here were stunning and the sea was so warm. Our tour guide was so friendly and knowledgeable - would highly recommend asking for him! We also got to see a variety of animals too including monkeys and a sloth. Breakfast was delicious and lunch was great with such an amazing view! Would definitely recommend this tour!

Oscar was a amazing guide! His knowledge of the area, ecology and the animals was great! Oscar found animals that were difficult to spot even if you were only a few feet away. His bird calls made us birders. We saw dozens of beautiful birds. We highly recommend. He’s also a good driver and speaks perfect English.

We wanted something to do on the final day of our holiday because our main tour ended the day before. We hadn't been to Manuel Antonio so we decided to go even though we knew it would be a long day from San Jose. Oscar looked after us with wildlife spotting and showed us the way to a second trail we could do by ourselves. We were rewarded with a white tailed deer casually and slowly walking across the path in front of us. It was worth the journey for that alone. Lunch was on the roof terrace of a hotel with a great view of the beach and wildlife.
