It was designated as a National Park in 1972 and is regarded as one of the most beautiful in the world by Forbes. We have to agree; it is simply magnificent. Exploring the park is the best thing to do in Manuel Antonio since nothing beats viewing wild animals in their natural habitat. The park is packed with an amazing variety of species. Within 9 square miles of the lush rainforest that makes up Manuel Antonio National Park, you’ll be able to spot at least some of the 109 animal species and 184 bird species. (it is definitely easier if you have a guide).

If you see a large group of people, you can bet they’ve spotted animals, but getting near enough to take a photo might be difficult with all those people. The best way to see wildlife in Manuel Antonio is to take a tour or hire a guide. The guides know where the wildlife tends to be. They’ll also have binoculars and a monoscope so you can get a great look at things up close.  Tickets are valid for one entry to the park only, so you’ll want to get there early so you have the maximum time in the park.

Here are the main trails to take in Manuel Antonio National Park. 

Sendero Principal Trail Manuel Antonio National Park

The main trail, or Sendero Principal, is just 2.2 kilometers long and runs along the back of the beach.  It pretty much runs parallel to the service road, but we found it quiet (to our surprise) and a pleasant walk.

Perezosos Trail (Sloth Trail Manuel Antonio National Park

You came to Costa Rica for one main reason, right? To see the sloths, of course. Before turning right onto Playa Espadilla Sur, the El Manglar Trail links with the Sloth Trail; just continue straight here to get onto the Sloth Trail. It continues as an elevated boardwalk for about half of the distance before transitioning to a paved and reasonably level trail that weaves through some thick rainforest with just minor ups and downs. Overall, the Manuel Antonio Sloth Path is an easy path to walk to see various wildlife, as well as a key trail through the park to get to the main beach, restaurant, and access to other trails.

Main trail Manuel Antonio National Park

If you don’t want to go in and out on the same path, this route connects to the sloth trail and is a great option.

Mangrove Trail Manuel Antonio National Park

El Manglar, also known as the Mangrove Trail, will be the first hiking trail you’ll see in Manuel Antonio after entering the park. This route is a wheelchair-accessible flat elevated boardwalk with lots of benches to stop and admire the jungle around you, as well as various interpretive signs with important information on the park’s flora and wildlife. After just a short walk, you can continue straight on the Sloth Trail or right on the El Manglar Trail. The Manglar Trail continues over an elevated boardwalk and across a swampy mangrove environment to La Play Espadilla Sur, one of Manuel Antonio’s most amazing beaches. This short trail is exposed to the sun, so don’t forget to bring a hat and sunscreen. This approach is straightforward, flat, and accessible.

Catarata Estacional Trail Manuel Antonio National Park

This is a tiny (less than half a mile) trail that diverges from the El Manglar trail immediately after the entry and goes to a small seasonal waterfall. If you visit the park during the rainy season, it may be worthwhile to take this small side trail, but we didn’t think it was necessary during the peak of the summer months when the waterfall is usually dry, even though we’ve read that people have found a few great wildlife along the trail, such as poison dart frogs. The route is paved, however, there are also long parts of stair climbing.

Manuel Antonio and Espadilla Sur Manuel Antonio National Park

The Playa Manuel Antonio Trail is a short walk from the cafeteria to the park’s principal beach, Playa Manuel Antonio. It takes you out onto the small land bridge that runs along the southern border of Playa Manuel Antonio and the northern edge of Playa Espadilla Sur. At the top of the path, there are restrooms and a changing facility, and at the beach, there are portable restrooms, picnic areas, and drinking water. Playa Manuel Antonio is not the largest beach in the park, but it is pretty usually pretty calm here, making it an ideal swimming location.

Cathedral Point Trail Manuel Antonio National Park

Punta Catedral is a small peninsular connected by a short land bridge that has two of the park’s major beaches on each side, Playa Manuel Antonio and Playa Espadilla Sur. It’s incredibly beautiful, and aerial photos of this island are often shown in TV commercials. The Punta Cathedral route in Manuel Antonio is a 3/4 mile hike that arcs around the peninsular, having entrances at the ends of both beaches. Even though it begins near one of the park’s major beaches, there aren’t many people on this route, so it’s another fantastic option for a genuine, peaceful National Park experience away from the public.
