Costa Rica Study Abroad Day 24- .Manuel Antonio National Park

Day 24

On day twenty four we left Jaco and headed to Manuel Antonio National Park


Scenic Manuel Antonio National Park is a perfect combination of warm Pacific waters and rainforest that grows right down to the three white sand beaches. Nature trails take you along the beach strand and over a forested, rocky promontory. 

This park, in the humid tropical zone, protects several habitats, including primary relative isolation and secondary forest, mangroves, beach vegetation and marine resources. Because of its relative isolation and small size it is probably one of the easiest places in Costa Rica to see wildlife, particularly sloths, coatis, agoutis, White-faced Monkeys and the tiny Squirrel Monkey.
