We will drive you to the Pacific Coast, to the Manuel Antonio National Park, to live and feel how the tropics breathe by the sea, where jungles turn to palm trees and grow from soft white sands. Do not forget about the monkeys, birds and a series of insects that will surely surprise you. Manuel Antonio also offers great restaurants, varied nightlife and enough areas to venture into the wild.

Spend two nights in one of the best hotels in the area, Parador Resort & Spa. As you will have the afternoon at leisure, do not lose the chance to visit Biesanz Beach, a white sand, small and secluded spot, one of the best beaches in Costa Rica. Parador hotel offers complimentary shuttle there but, you can walk as it is the closest beach to the property.

Next day, continue with the family adventure tours, in Manuel Antonio National Park, one and the most popular national parks of Costa Rica. You can easily watch some animals there, like the friendly sloth, birds or why not a deer. We strongly recommend you to visit it as early in the morning as you can, so you will have a better chance of seeing some species of fauna and enjoy your time in the pristine beaches at the national park. 

Day 6th will be the last one on the beach so you will have time to spend on some of the top beaches in the country or the hotel pool, because in the afternoon, you will take a shuttle back to the capital to rest before take a fly back to your home. If needed, that night, you can buy some souvenirs, close to your hotel. In the Central or commercial avenue.

Sadly, the week will fly by and you will be leaving the natural paradise, home of the “Pura Vida”. It takes 30 minutes approximately to get to the airport from San Jose, but take into consideration that you should check in at the airport 3 hours before your departure flight.
