The view

This magnificent tiny area of Costa Rica has so much to offer. The ..gorgeous white sand beach , the park of course and loads of wildlife ...everywhere. We visited for a day trip a few years ago and vowed to come back . It's a popular spot so probably best to books ahead. We decied to treat ourselves to a really nice hill top hotel with a view and we weren't sorry . The view was incredible!!

Manuel Antonio Beach

I think this was my favorite beach . The white sand was so gorgeous. It is really refreshing after a hike in the park!!

Manuel Antonio Park

The park is really good but it's best tp get there early , if you can . It's really peaceful before the tourist buses arrive,

Pros and Cons
  • Pros:A lot of beauty in a tiny place!!
  • Cons:Discovered by many long ago..and the buses roll in frequently!!
  • In a nutshell:This is the place to come if you don't have a lot of time and want a good sampling of all Costa Rica has to offer!!

    It sounds like the two of you really enjoyed the Puntarenas area! Your hotel looks fabulous and I loved the Avion restaurant tip! My wife and I also enjoyed our time in CR and I'm glad to see that you also sampled the beach, jungle and wildlife!!
