We recommended visit our beautiful Manuel Antonio National Park (closed on Mondays). White-sand beaches, cliffs, promontories, ravines, rivers, rainforests, varied wildlife, beautiful seascapes and a hot climate all describe Manuel Antonio National Park. Located on Costa Rica's Pacific Coast 4.3 miles (7 kms) south of Quepos Harbor, some consider the Park to be overdeveloped and crowded. Indeed, Manual Antonio remains one of Costa Rica's most popular beach destinations and is sometimes compared to Key West. The area around the Park is part of an agricultural region based on a plantation economy, which has been extensively altered since the 19th century. The forest, which used to cover vast tracts, was cut down and the few remaining stands are conserved today in a protected wilderness area.
