Manuel Antonio is home to the Manuel Antonio National Park. Here, visitors can walk along well-marked trails that lead through lush tropical forests. The wildlife viewing is notably diverse and the park’s pristine beaches provide an excellent place to relax during the afternoon. Visitors can enjoy surfing and swimming in the ocean, as well as good snorkeling and scuba diving when the water is clear. Other activities include horseback riding, rafting, and sport fishing.
