Wonderful trip! In the morning we had a great breakfast. After that we came to the river near by to see crocodiles! It was amazing. Then we moved towards national park. In the park we have seen sloths, spiders, monkeys and other animals. Beach was very beautiful and water was extremely warm! They had trails there too, and I'd recommend to the connoisseurs of nature take it. You will see wonderful views from the top. I'd rate this trip as 5 out of 5.

A long day but well worth the trip. Watching the crocodiles from the bridge and seeing the animals in their natural habitat combined with a great view of the ocean at Manuel Antonio was the highlight of the trip. Food was good and the bus comfortable. The walk to the beach was a little bit too long when carrying a bag with beach gear, water ,camera and lunchbox provided by the tour company. Aside from not having enough time at the park, the tour was a great experience, and I highly recommend it. Next time I stay a night or two!

We loved our day trip to Manuel Antonio and the Pacific Ocean. It was a long, 13 hour day from San Jose but the route afforded us views of the country we wouldn't have seen and it was well worth it for our short stay in Costa Rica. The guide and driver were excellent - safe, friendly and accommodating. We saw crocodiles, iguanas, toucans, macaws, sloths, white faced monkeys (rascals on the beach-watch your stuff!), even a howler monkey. The temperature of the Pacific Ocean in April was as warm as bath water! Breakfast and lunch were also tasty. Bring your camera and/or binoculars and have fun!

Great to see animals and amazing to be on a beach which is secluded. My view on the beach was a beautiful rainforest vs. fratboys playing party like a rockstar in front of a giant hotel. Highly recommend this.

The tour was simply wonderful! We were picked up on time at our hotel. Our tour guide was knowledgeable, polite and patient. The bus was comfortable, the food breakfast and lunch was plentiful and delicious, and all of the facilities restaurants and restrooms were clean and comfortable. Our guide, Ricardo, did an excellent job of locating sloths, lizards and other wild life.

The trip I took was fantastic! The guide was very knowledgeable and shared so much information about Costa Rica. I left feeling like I knew a lot about the country. The food was great, and the experience was stellar. I would highly recommend this trip to anyone!

This trip was astonishingly beautiful in the diversity of the views. The park itself was beautiful, and the beaches were picture-card perfect! Being the rainy season, it did rain in the afternoon, but we spent this time having a delicious lunch. Unforgettable experience!

Our day trip was great and exceeded our expectations. Our tour director (Mario) was excellent and we felt safe with the driver. Manual Antonio National Park is very beautiful, an incredible place to visit, and arguably the most beautiful beach in Costa Rica. During our tour. we were provided a good breakfast, plenty of water and snacks, and a great fish late lunch. We also stopped at places to take pictures of birds, crocodiles, monkeys, etc., and were afforded opportunities to buy souvenirs. Our only concern and the reason we did not rate the tour as 5 stars, was the comfort of the van on that day. We were stuck in the rear seats of a 11 passenger Toyota van for nearly 7 hours. Our seats felt like they had no padding and with the rough roads combined for an uncomfortable ride. We would recommend this tour to anyone interested and just try to stay out of those back seats.
