Manuel Antonio National Park

Manuel Antonio is located approximately 1 1/2 hours south of Surf Inn Hermosa and is one of the most visited National Parks in Costa Rica.  It features not only rainforest, but spectacular white sand beaches.  This is a great side trip from Surf Inn Hermosa and highly recommended with a guide who can show you all of the wildlife of the park.  This picture features one of the famous three-toed sloths that can be seen thru the telescopes of the nature guide.  Manuel Antonio’s nature trails are awesome to hike and take in all wildlife ranging from toads and iguanas to monkeys, toucans and songbirds.  In 2011, this park was voted as one of the most beautiful national park by Forbes.

Butterfly Farm and Neofauna Tour

Just 15 Minutes North of Surf Inn Hermosa, there is the Neofauna Butterfly and Serpentarium Facility that has a large buttefly garden, a serpentarium and a frog exhibit.  Guests can see morpho and tiger butterflies up close, along with many of Costa Rican’s venomous snakes, and 3 different endangered dart frogs and five leaf/tree frogs. This is an awesome nature educational tour that is reasonable in price, close by and great for the entire family. For more information, contact surfinnhermosa@yahoo.com.
