Manuel Antonio National Park is located in the Central Pacific region of Costa Rica, about 34 miles (56 km) from San Jose.

Manuel Antonio is one of the best-known travel destinations in the country as a result of its easy access, variety of local services, and wide range of plants and wildlife in a small area.

Among the main attractions are beaches surrounded by rainforest, as well as beautiful coral reefs, and the park attracts hikers, divers, birders, ecotourists, and surfers.

The road to the beach and park has many hotels and restaurants, offering the visitor a large selection of places to stay and eat.

Overall Atmosphere: Natural
A Natural Atmosphere includes a diverse range of destinations with outdoor-oriented features, including both water-based (beaches, rivers, lakes, etc) and land-based (mountains, forests, deserts, etc). It also includes specific outdoor activities, ranging from water adventuring (eg, kayaking, sailing) to land adventuring (eg, hiking, biking).

Natural Interests tend to be:
(a) outdoors-oriented, and therefore more dependent on weather conditions
(b) less easily accessible and more physically demanding than other destination categories.

In some cases (eg, rafting and climbing), this includes a significantly increased degree of adventure (or danger, depending on one's viewpoint).
Featuring mainly outdoors-oriented natural attractions.
