Our guide Andrey was fantastic! He made our visit to the park perfect. He is very knowledgeable about the animals, plants and the park. We saw everything we wished to see and more, thanks to his “eagle eyes”! Andrey took care of us the moment we arrived, helping us through check in to dropping us off at the beautiful beach. Completely recommend this tour.

DONT MISS THIS!
Mark_G, Apr 2024
Incredible experience from beginning to end. Detailed instructions were provided in advance to meet the guide and have an seamless entry into the park. Our guide, SAUL, was very knowledgeable, professional and took great care to ensure we saw as many mammals, birds, reptiles and insects as possible.

Definitely get a guide to take you through the park! Great tour
Meg_G, Apr 2024
You really need a guide to best explore Manuel Antonio, and Mop was great! Most of the guides have a super nice telescope to view the wildlife. Mop took the time to scout out a ton of cool animals so we could see them up close. Mop was very knowledgeable and personable, this was an awesome way to spend a morning.

this was just an amazing...
Amit_B, Apr 2024
this was just an amazing tour! thanks to this tour operator. our guide was MOP and you will be lucky if you get him as your guide. highly talented, 25 years experienced, great spotter, great communicator! he showed us things that you could have never imagined without this guided tour. if you do it alone, you will miss 99% of the things! please please please, trust me, just book this tour, you will not regret. I’d also strongly recommend booking 7 am tour. the earlier you get there and get this done the better. The reason is this park is extremely popular and gets crowded, problems with parking etc. also later you go, hotter its going to get and then especially kids, start losing their patience. ofcourse, whatever you schedule allows but my experience was really good with early am. another advantage is that the beach inside the park is absolutely gorgeous. but things close at 3-4 pm I think. so if you get in early and get done with the tour early, then you can hang out on the beach. you can go in and out of the park, once you are out, you are done. strongly recommend this tour operator and this excursion.

Best day yet!
Sheena_R, Mar 2024
Our tour of Manuel Antonio national park was made special by our tour guide Mop! We lucked out and got a private tour as no one else was in our group. Mop had a very good eye and showed us multiple sloths (including a very active baby and mama sloth), stick bird, white faced monkeys, a land turtle, helicopter dragonfly, etc. He paced the tour very much for our liking- where he spent a lot of time looking and letting us experience (from a good distance) the animals. While we walked he would explain what we had just seen. I would book this tour again and request specifically for Mop to be our guide! I suggest you reserve a ticket for Manuel Antonio first and then book this tour. You cannot get in to the park even if you already have a guided tour (as the park entry tickets are separate). Follow the directions in the email on how to find their office/parking as there are a lot of scammers on the road to the park entrance. The trail is very well paved and pretty easy. You can hang out at the park to enjoy the beach/trails after you finish the guided tour but make sure you bring all the things you need as there is no readmittance once you leave. It would also be a good idea to look up what time is best for the things you would like to see (birds early morning, etc).

Would definitely suggest this tour!
Ashley_H, Mar 2024
Mop was a great tour guide, he was so skilled at finding the animals! I was amazed at how well he could find the hidden ones. The tour was entertaining and well worth the price, I would have missed out of a lot if I'd gone through on our own!

Dick_M, Mar 2024
Outstanding private tour of Manual Antonio Park. Saul did a great job finding and showing us a large number of examples of wildlife and answering our questions about the park, the vegetation and the ecosystem. He was a wealth of knowledge. Time well spent.

Won't see animals otherwise
Wendy_L, Mar 2024
Mop was a great guide! He met us when we pulled into the parking lot and was super knowledgeable about the animals. I am not that big into seeing the animals but that's what Manual Antonio is known for so we did it and I'm glad we did because otherwise we would just be straight walking through to the beach. There was two girls who did that and they really wanted to see the animals but you need one of those scope things that the guide brings. You can't see the animals without the guides. We had a very smart and inquisitive 11 year old boy in our group and our guide did great answering all his questions.

Manuel Antonio - great tour. Be prepared.
Delia_E, Feb 2024
The tour was lovely with a very knowledgeable guide. Communication was good and parking was very convenient. We saw lots of wild life and I couldn’t be more impressed with the guides ability to spot things. With that said it was hot hot hot. No fault of the tour at all. Just be prepared. We had two elderly parents and two small kiddos and it was a little too much for them. We hoped the beach would give us relief but when we got there we saw many people (5-6) complaining of very painful jelly fish burns. So we skipped getting into the gorgeous blue water. Again zero fault of the tour - just the random time of year probably. So we didn’t get to cool down. I still think with all that it is a gorgeous park and great tour I just urge you to dress appropriately- bring a lot of water in reusable metal bottles ( plastic not allowed in park). And maybe let sensitive ages rest by the pool that day.
Response from Host, Feb 2024
Hola Delia, // Thank you very much for your valuable and very helpful review, especially in the consideration of the heat and humidity for the children and/or elderly people. // So sad you couldn't enjoy the beach because of the risk of the jelly fish. // Thank you very much for your visit to Costa Rica, and for giving us the opportunity to enjoy Manuel Antonio national park. // Pura vida, The MANT team
Must do!
Anonymous, Feb 2024
We loved this tour! Our tour guide was amazing and we were able to see so many animals! We saw sloths, 2 different kinds of monkeys, iguanas, lizards, bats, and other cool insects and flowers. There were also very clear instructions about where to park, which was very nice as there are lots of people trying to get you to park by them.

You must hire a guide! I highly recommend Mop. He has been a guide for 25 years. If it would have been just us, we wouldn’t have seen anything.

Perfect Morning Tour
Emily_S, Feb 2024
We had a private tour with experienced guide MOP. He was very friendly and knowledgeable and made sure we got to see all of the animals we desperately wanted to see! He also showed us & taught us about lots of other things we weren’t aware of.

Amazing Park Tour
Gina_S, Feb 2024
We got LUCKY we were able to take a nature tour in Manuel Antonio National Park! Get those tickets early. Edwin was a fantastic guide. Not only was he able to spot a lot of wildlife, he also shared so many educational tidbits along the way. Four kids ask a lot of questions! Our entire family enjoyed the 2 hour tour and would highly recommend Edwin's services.
