Manuel Antonio National Park is the quintessential Costa Rican wildlife experience that is not to be missed by animal lovers and those in persuit of beautiful tropical beaches with rainforest reaching right up to the ocean. This has to be one of the best places in the world to see tropical wildlife, almost seeming like a zoo, as you spot monkeys, sloths, and other rainforest dwellers like cute coatis in a natural environment as you meander along paths on the rainforest floor. Relax, and have a picnic on the beach, but watch out for mischiveous monkeys that try to steal your food! Manuel Antonio is a must-experience destination both for families and for couples who can select from numerous romantic eco-lodges and beachfront hotels with spectacular views.
