Manuel Antonio Beach: one of the most beautiful beaches in the world

According to Conde Nast Traveler magazine, Manuel Antonio Beach is one of the most beautiful beaches in the world. This popular family beach borders the wildlife-filled Manuel Antonio National Park, where three-toed sloths and white-faced capuchin monkeys emerge from the coastal rainforest to the delight of tiny beachgoers. It’s a 30-minute hike from the entrance to the park, but once there you’ll find soft sands, excellent water to swim, and honey-hued sunsets.
