Manuel Antonio National Park Tour

With the establishment of Manuel Antonio National Park in 1972, the people of Costa Rica decided to preserve for future generations one of the most beautiful and bio-diverse areas in the world. Although it is the country's smallest national park, the stunning beauty and diversity of wildlife in its 4.249 acres is what makes this place a must see for every visitor in the country.

Manuel Antonio offers a charming combination of rain forest, beaches and coral reefs. This beautiful park is home to sloths, three species of monkeys (white faced, squirrel, howler), iguanas, and millions of colourful little land crabs. Some of the trails afford spectacular ocean views.

Our naturalist guides will take you on an amazing jungle experience. The goal of the Aguila Tours team is to share and teach you about Manuel Antonio’s best nature secrets. Walk for about 3 miles on easy trails searching for unique animals and plants. During our tour you will learn about the symbiotic relationship between many animals and plants.
