Manuel Antonio National Park
Located in Costa Rica’s Central Pacific Coast, Manuel Antonio National Park offers idyllic beaches, excellent wildlife viewing opportunities, easy access and good surrounding infrastructure making it one of the country's most visited parks. White-throated Capuchin Monkeys, squirrel monkeys, brown three-toed sloths, white-nosed coatis and lizards are part of the park wildlife.
The biodiversity in the park is as abundant. It has more than 350 species of birds, including those who live on the coast. There is also great variety of marine invertebrates that can be appreciated in the rocks during low tide, and a coral can be found offshore.
A special feature of the place is the Punta Catedral, which was an island but now is connected to the mainland by a narrow extension of land made of accumulated sediments. The park has four beaches: Espadilla Sur, Blanca, Escondido and Playita.
