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.
