DAY BY DAY DESCRIPTIONS:

 

Day 1               MANUEL ANTONIO BEACH

 

Manuel Antonio National Park is a one of the most popular places due to its lovely forest-backed tropical beaches, impressive rocky headlands with ocean and island views, and vibrant wildlife. A well-maintained trail network allows visitors to witness the unspoiled primary forest that grows along the high tide mark. Over 350 species of birds are reported in the park and surrounded area, and a variety of lizards, snakes, iguanas, monkeys, sloths, butterflies and other animals might be observed. The third beach in the park is the nicest, with excellent swimming and snorkeling.

Day 2           CANOPY SAFARI TOUR

 

In the morning you will be transported to the rainforest for a 100% adrenaline experience: The Canopy Safari tour!!

 

Our tour begins with an amazing drive through the rainforest out to our canopy site.  During the ride there are many stops for everyone to learn about the flora and fauna of the area. Our local bilingual guides have a vast knowledge of the area and love to share the many secrets that the rainforest holds with our clients.  

The canopy site is located approximately forty-five minutes from Manuel Antonio, in an area called Paso Real.  Here we have a brand new ranch house with full facilities, located next to a pristine river, this is where we serve a full breakfast. A spectacular river is the backdrop for these platforms carefully built in the canopy of the rainforest.  Clients are able to traverse from tree to tree and platform to platform using pulleys on horizontal traverse cables, as they sail through the treetops of the tropical rainforest canopy, and over the trails far below.  Our canopy course consists of 21 platforms, 9 “zip lines”, and 2 rappel lines, one suspension bridge and a "Tarzan Swing".   Our expert guides assist the clients in this exciting journey through the different layers of virgin and secondary rainforest.  They point out and explain the many different types of flora and fauna; from poison dart frogs, to the “walking palm tree”.  As a result; at the end of the tour our clients are able to walk away with a newfound knowledge of Costa Rican wildlife.
