DAY 7-9

MANUEL ANTONIO

Your journey through Costa Rica ends at one of the country’s most famous national parks, Manuel Antonio. A small but stunning wilderness defined by its rich forest, white-sand beaches, coral reefs and rocky coves. The forest itself has massive fig trees, two- and three-toed sloths, green and black iguanas, agoutis and nearly 200 species of birds. And because many of the creatures are used to encountering humans along the nature trails, you can see and photograph them at close quarters.

A guided tour into the national park is included, as well as some time to relax by the hotel’s picturesque outdoor swimming pool before retuning back to civilisation.

Stay: Three nights at Si Como No – Bed & breakfast
