What To Expect

Your tour starts with hotel pickup in the morning for the drive from Jaco to Manuel Antonio National Park, an oasis of Costa Rican wildlife and natural scenery. 

With a guide, explore the park to find its many inhabitants, from birds and monkeys to iguanas, crabs, and maybe even a sloth. The squirrel monkey is one of the park's most significant populations of animals, the smallest and most endangered monkey species in the country. 

In addition to the wildlife, the park is loved for its white-sand beaches and protected natural environment, which you'll have the chance to admire. Lunch is included with an ocean views. Your tour ends with transfer back to your departure point.

Jaco Beach

This charming yet small biological peninsula consists of several beaches, mangroves and coastal dry and humid forest. This protected area is very popular due to its wide variety of flora and fauna. An experienced guide will accompany you on this picturesque oasis of life where you will get amazed of its natural wonders. Of its most important fauna, we find monkeys, birds, iguanas, crabs, sloths and some other mammals. Manuel Antonio is the perfect place to enjoy nature, which is merged into the beauty of its white sand beaches. This coastal preserve holds the most important population of the Squirrel Monkey or “Tití” Monkey in Costa Rica – the smallest and most endangered species of monkeys in the country – with a maximum size of 80cm (31 inches), these mammals are famous to be the most important living attraction in town. We cannot leave Manuel Antonio without taking a delicious lunch with a great ocean view. The park is closed on Mondays during the low season.

Roger was so enthusiastic and knowledgeable with the park. He was able to spot things I literally didn't ever see. He was kind to all. Our driver, I can't remember his name, bit he was a great driver and let us know how the day was going to go

With a guide who had so much enthusiasm how could it not be memorable. She started guiding as soon as we got in the van on our way to the park. Her zest for informing us was unparalleled. Gabriella was a gem!
fabulous trip

other than seeing all the animals I'd hoped to and ending up on a beautiful beach, our driver and guide were both awesome (Gary and Davide). Ended having a private tour for the 2 of us.

Cindy was an excellent guide, very knowledgeable and friendly. Brian was an awesome driver and took the pressures of navigating off our shoulders. The park and lunch were spectacular. We saw many animals, enjoyed a fantastic swim, and experienced an authentic lunch in a beautiful setting. HIghly recommend.

The keen eyes of the tour guides. If you didn't know where to look you would miss a lot of the wildlife
Awesome Experience
Damon_D, Dec 2021
This is an absolute must see in Costa Rica. We scheduled a private tour. Our tour guide, Jacob, helped us experience the park in ways we could not have imagined. We had perfect weather, saw exceptional rainforest wild life, and finally enjoyed the most perfect beach we’ve seen during our stay. Our December trip to the part was exceptional.

We enjoyed our tour in the park. Our guide Mauricio was very knowledgeable and friendly. The park was crowded but we did not have to deal with a lot of chaos.
