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!

The tour was incredible! Leli, our guide, was so wonderful! She even gave us extra time to spend at the beach. She was good at spotting animals too! We highly recommend this tour!

It's a long trip but worth it. The beach is beautiful and to see a sloth, a howler monkey and see some racoons go after people's food was the icing on the cake.

Absolutely brill trip.... a long travel but worth it, and of you only have 1 day to see the pacific coast then this is the best way to do it by far!
Only reason for not giving it 5 was that some of the people we took the trip with were really annoying - nothing that Viator could do but always worth remembering that you can't pay for the company you keep sometimes!

This tour was great. We had a very good time during our tour. Our guide was excellent and very knowledgeable. I was worried about Breakfast and lunch as we we're vegetarian but they have provided us good vegetarian food !! We saw so many wild life during this tour and no words to explain how beautiful the beach was....
I highly recommend this tour to anyone !!
