Manuel Antonio National Park Is One of Several Nearby National Parks

Manuel Antonio National Park

Manuel Antonio National Park is Costa Rica’s number one tourist attraction due to its incredible beauty and amazing wildlife. In fact, in Forbes listed Manuel Antonio National Park as one of the twelve most beautiful parks in the world.

The best news? The Park is only one hour from Las Villas de San Buenas!

Incredible! Las Villas de San Buenas clients Steve and Alana Firlit took and shared this photograph from Manuel Antonio National Park.

In addition to being close, driving from Las Villas de San Buenas to Manuel Antonio is easy! Simply take a right, head north from San Buenaventura onto Highway 34/Costanera Highway, drive approximately one hour and take left into Quepos. From Quepos, it is a short drive to the actual entrance to Manuel Antonio National Park.

We often have guests and residents who will take a day trip to the park. It’s easy to leave by 7 am and be back at Las Villas de San Buenas by 1 pm.

Manuel Antonio National park was established in 1972 and is approximately 4,900 acres (1,984 hectares) in size.

Manuel Antonio National Park is one of the jewels of Costa Rica’s eco-tourism. The best way to see and experience the park is to hire a trained guide at the park’s entrance, and they’ll try and find sloths, monkeys and dozens of birds to show you.

Quepos

Once you’re done with the tour of Manuel Antonio National Park, take some time to enjoy Quepos (the town adjacent to the park). Quepos has a large beach where you can enjoy the waves, go for a walk or simply relax. Adjacent to the beach you will find ‘non-pushy’ vendors (in fact, they’re typically very laid back – Pura Vida!) who have handmade jewelry, hammocks and t-shirts for sale.

Quepos also has a newly built marina and it’s a great place to end the day overlooking the bay and enjoying an Imperial or fruit juice.

The house in San Buenaventura is an incredible place. We couldn't have asked for a more relaxing and beautiful place to stay in Costa Rica. It has all of the modern amenities you could ask for and then more.

The view from the pool is stunning. Tucans came each day. You can hear the howler monkeys in the nearby jungle. So many stunning birds fly by and come eat from the gardens. The house and property is well maintained. Will return!

Casa Helena was the perfect stay! It's comfortable, beautifully decorated, and tucked into a lush, peaceful garden with a refreshing pool. I recommend lying in the terrace hammock to watch the clouds drift across the mountains— nothing better.

It was very good the house is comfortable and the pool is great, but I think it would be good to have TV via satellite at least and not only netflix or youtube. The wi-fi connection was not the best and the kolbi cellphones never worked in the area.
