Manuel Antonio National Park, Puntarenas Province, Costa Rica

Manuel Antonio National Park

A gem of a conservation area on the Pacific Ocean.

Drive 82 miles south of San Jose, Costa Rica and you’ll reach the small but hugely rewarding Manuel Antonio—7.66-square miles of pristine jungle trails and gorgeous coves. Walk the tropical forest, keeping an eye out for sloths in the canopy, or hit one of its four snorkeler-friendly beaches.
