Enjoy a tour of Manuel Antonio National Park, one of Costa Rica’s most visited conservation areas, where you will have the opportunity to witness a variety of the biodiversity the park has to offer.

Lastly, travel back to San Jose and explore the city’s restaurants, bars, night clubs, art galleries and museums independently.
