HOW TO GET THERE: (Routes Map)
Take the Route #27 from La Sabana in San Jose and head west towards Orotina and then exit onto Highway 34 which swings to the South and on down towards Jaco. From there the coastal road continues southeast.
Temperatures hover in the 80's F. During the rainy season, May to November, the climate gets very humid but lends to the tropical atmosphere and tends to bring down the temperatures.
WHAT TO BRING:
With the humidity come the mosquitoes so bring along plenty of insect repellant as well as soothing aloe lotion for the itching. As with other areas in Costa Rica, a hat, sunglasses and sunblock are essential. Lightweight cotton clothing, hiking shoes, a rain poncho and snorkeling equipment are all you should need.
WHAT TO DO:
There is a huge variety of things to do - whitewater rafting, ocean cruising, horseback riding, fishing, sea kayaking, to name but a few.
Walking the Park's easy trails at Manuel Antonio National Park, and enjoy the most stunning and one of the lushest places in Costa Rica, with spectacular white-grey sand beaches fringed by thickly forested green hills.
