The ocean off the coast of Manuel Antonio National Park is known for its reefs and calm waters that allow for easy snorkeling. Snorkelers that take the plunge here will get to see giant schools of tropical fish. Probably the most talked-about species is the bright, neon-colored parrotfish. These fish nibble on the reef and are an essential component of the reef’s ecosystem.
