What you'll do

Get ready to be fascinated in the Costa Rica's most spectacular National Park !

I will meet you at the Park main entrance where after I introduce myself I will quickly brief you on the rules of the Park, registration in the Park rangers checkpoint will be necesarry due the COVID-19 pandemic this as part of the sanitary protocol to enter the Park

During our walking we have the opportunity to spot an abundance of wildlife hiding in the trees. My years of observing animals has given me expert spotting skills, so I can help you find animals that are hiding in plain sight. This park is home to a wide variety of animal species, which includes monkeys, sloths, frogs, snakes, lizards, birds, interesting insects and so much more. As we encounter each animal, I will describe their behaviors, habitats, and more. DON'T WORRY about taking pictures... with my iPhone 11 PRO MAX attached to my HD spotting scope I will take really spectacular pictures and videos of the animals and will share to you (FREE of CHARGE) at the end so you can have memories for a lifetime to share with your friends and family.

There is a beach inside the Park, so make sure to bring your bathing suit to enjoy the beach

Keep in mind that:
- Park is closed on Tuesday
- Entrance fee is $18.08 (adult) and $5.65 (children) additional to the price
- Parking is available next to the entrance additional to the price

Hola Pura vida,
My name is Edwin Castillo a local certified guide by the Costa Rica government and the owner of Manuel Antonio Nature Tours, I was born and raised in the Manuel Antonio/Quepos area, so welcome to my office I am pretty sure you'll love it !

I loved going to Manuel Antonio park as a kid, so I could spot the animals and be part of the natural beauty around me. This inspired me to get my license to be a tour guide in Costa Rica, so that I could share my passion with visitors coming through. My favorite part of providing tours is seeing the amazement on my guest's face as we encounter an abundance of wildlife. I look forward to sharing this truly amazing park experience with you.

Edwin was such a great tour guide. He has some great vision, he was able to find wildlife without binoculars! Hi took his time explained thier habits, etc. We are going back home with knowledge of Costa Rican wildlife. I will definitely contact him for future trips/tours in Costa Rica.

Our tour with Edwin was great. The initial meeting was easy, he helped us get through park security and we immediately began our tour. Edwin and the other guides work together to make sure their clients get to see all of the wildlife possible. Edwin has a great camera for assisting in the viewing. He was friendly and informative, and best of all, sent us amazing pictures that he took during our time together.

Hola. Hice la visita el 25 Julio 2021 y la pasé de maravilla! Edwin es muy amable, y muy profesional. Su buen trato y atención comenzó desde antes, cuando estaba planificando mi viaje y lo contacté para preguntarle alternativas de llegar desde San José al Parque, y aparte de ello hizo cambios en horario para que pudiera llegar y unirme al recorrido de la tarde. El recorrido estuvo mejor de lo que esperaba, ya que pudimos ver y apreciar varios perezosos (uno con su cria), ranas, murciélagos, 3 y species de monos, entre otros, mientras Edwin nos hablaba de cada uno de ellos. Por mi cuenta no los habría visto, así que si quieren ver varios animales, anímense a hacer visita con un guía, el cual debe ser Edwin y su partner “Juanito” (ya lo conocerán). Lo recomiendo 100%
