Manuel Antonio National Park - Vacation in Costa Rica

Manuel Antonio National Park, on the Pacific Coast, is a great spot for bird watching and hiking. Guests will find excellent surfing and windsurfing at Playa Espadilla Sur, while Playa Blanca boasts a protected beach that's perfect for families. Experienced scuba divers enjoy exploring the Bat Islands and Catalina Island, about half an hour offshore.

There is quite a variety of flora fauna, with 109 species of mammals and 184 of birds. The park includes 12 little isles just off the coast; these are a number of dolphins and, at times, migrating whales can be observed.

Manuel Antonio's Hidden History

Ponce de León, the Spanish explorer, whose futile search for the Fountain of Youth became his signature expedition, is rarely recognized for one of his greatest discoveries - Quepos and Manuel Antonio - which he put on the charts in 1519.
