Private Day Trip to Manuel Antonio Park with Transportation from Jaco

From: $125.00 +VAT


Guided Private Tour of Manuel Antonio National Park with Transportation from Jaco

If you want to see wildlife during your time in Jaco, one of the best ways is to take a day trip about 1 hour south to Manuel Antonio.

This tour will start with pickup from your hotel or vacation rental in the Jaco area in a private, air-conditioned van. You’ll then travel to Manuel Antonio National Park, the most popular park in Costa Rica.

This park is home to an abundance of wildlife, including three types of monkeys, sloths, deer, lizards, and many kinds of birds. With the help of a naturalist guide, you will take to the trails to learn about the area’s flora and fauna. Guides are nice to have because they will help you spot more with their trained eye. There are guides lined up outside the park entrance every morning, but many of them are not certified naturalists so you have to be careful. The guides that we work with are well-respected naturalists who know a lot about the area’s flora and fauna. 

After the tour, your driver will take you to a restaurant of your choosing in Manuel Antonio for lunch. Following lunch, you’ll head back to Jaco.
