A-Z of Costa Rica's bird life
Considering a Costa Rica birdwatching holiday? Discover some of its most beautiful birds and the best places to see them…
Manuel Antonio National Park
Manuel Antonio is one of the most popular destinations in Costa Rica, due to its combination of lowland tropical rainforest, National Park, wide sandy beach, and easy access from San Jose. A small busy town has built up on a hill overlooking the coast, where many hotels, bars and restaurants can be found offering a variety of services.
If you feel like relaxing there are beautiful beaches at the bottom of the hill, where some beach bars and restaurants can also be found. For those feeling more adventurous it is easy to explore the National Park, either on your own or on a guided tour. The park has more than one hundred mammal species and one hundred and eighty species of birds, including the rare white ibis. Squirrel monkeys (another endangered species) play in the trees above the trails in the park and there are also two-toed sloths, raccoons, white-nosed coatis, howler and white faced monkeys, and squirrels.
