Manuel Antonio National Park Part I

August 20, 2014

Manuel Antonio National Park is paradise! I enjoyed the public beach in Quepos but I wanted to get away from the crowd and the persistent vendors on the beach.

To enter the park, you have to pay an entrance fee. Make sure that you pack food before going inside the park. There are no vendors or restaurant stalls inside the park so you have to bring your own food/drinks if you plan to stay for a couple of hours. 

Once you enter the park, you will have to follow a trail that will take you to the beach. It's about a 15-20 minute walk and you can see a lot of wildlife while walking. We spotted different birds, sloths and an iguana on the trail. You can also hire a guide for a fee if you want a comprehensive tour of the park.

My plan that day was to relax and I definitely did. I spent the day playing with the ocean waves and what else but getting my fill of vitamin D.

I might as well start planning my retirement here..
