Manuel Antonio Attractions

Manuel Antonio has the most popular national park in the country attracting more than 250,000 people each year to its lush rainforest, pristine beaches and myriad wildlife.

Just outside the park you'll find Espadilla Beach, the longest and most popular beach in Manuel Antonio. Biesanz Beach (off Quepos Point) offers a more secluded getaway in a natural setting. The nearby, Damas Island Mangroves offer insight into the one of the most important and unique ecosystems on the planet.

For look into the world of permaculture farming, visit Villa Vanilla, a spice farm in the hills of Manuel Antonio or, for something a little more adventurous, stop by Midworld adventure park to spend a day riding zip lines and ATVs.
