Lifestyle and Culture

Although Manuel Antonio National Park is one of the smallest parks in the country, it makes a powerful impact with sandy beaches, lush forests, sparkling blue water, exquisite coral reefs, and a wide variety of wildlife. There are approximately 109 species of animals and 184 species of birds in the park, examples of which include sloths, iguanas, squirrel monkeys, crabs, dolphins, whales, snakes, bats, toucans, woodpeckers, hawks, parakeets, turkey vultures, and tanagers. Visitors can take private tours of the park, or explore on their own. Because the park is such a popular destination, the number of people allowed in at any given time is limited to ensure an enjoyable experience and to lessen the impact on the natural environment. Besides hiking and taking tours, other activities in the park include surfing and snorkeling.

Sport fishing in nearby Quepos is also a popular activity in the area, and the waters here are home to fish such as snapper, sailfish, dorado, yellow fin tuna, big eye tuna, marlin, roosterfish, amberjack, and wahoo.

Guides are useful when looking for fish breeding hotspots in the area.
