Very good option if you re in San Jose.
Jan. 2021
If you re in San Jose and want a first experience about the forests in Costa Rica , this is a good and easy option.

I visit that park from Quebrada Gonzalez sector. This sector has two trails, is very easy and you ll enjoy it. Dont expect to see many animals but you can walk through the nature.

If you have a car, it will be easy for you but the bus is more challenging. You can take the bus from the Caribbean station to Guapiles ( 1530 colones) and then the only option is to wait outside the park untill one bus come. So, go prepared to wait about 20 - 40 minuites or more.

There are many tours for that park but in my opinion keep your money for another park.

This a huge park with beautiful forest, it felt remote. An enjoyable experience
Jan. 2020
The ariel tram was excellent, 1 hour 10 mins sliently floating above the canopy. We have taken canopy tours previously but this was the highest and longest. A guide accompanies you and the carriage is suitable for everybody and has proper seats. We stayed 2 nights in the lodge in the park and enjoyed the early morning and evening walks, our guide Leo was very experienced and knowledgeable.The walk is easy on a made path. We saw tapir, a sloth,a tarantula, snakes and lots of frogs.There are also butterfly, snake and frog exhibits which were good. There is a restaurant where the staff where friendly and helpful. There is zip lining but we didn't try it.

Ride through the rainforest.
Feb. 2020
Very nice! Rode through the rainforest in a covered gondola. Saw/heard a couple animals but this is more of a botanical adventure. Guide was very informative and friendly. About an hour from San Jose' as I recall and a beautiful drive between the two points.

BEST experience ever
Jan. 2020 • Family
I was generally not a fan of zip lining prior to my visit to this park. But these guys are simply the BEST. The safety precautions are top notch, the lines have brakes that automatically stop you (so folks like me with shoulder issues can do it pain-free), and the guides are super friendly. The park is gorgeous and full of life. On our week long trip this was the highlight!

Immersed in the Rainforest

There are two easy-to-hike trails, one a 1 km and another at about 2.5 km with labeled trees and other plants, overlooks, streams and when not raining maybe some birds! :-) I did see a wet sloth! :-)

Nice hike even in the rain
Dec. 2019
Beautiful hike in the thick forest protected from the rain. We had rain and sun and a beautiful morning. First hike is about an hour, second one across the highway about 30 min. The friendly ranger pointed out a three toed sloth in a tree near the parking lot . Pack a lunch as there are picnic tables, bathrooms and drinking water.

National Park
Nov. 2018
We plan to spend the day at Manuel Antonio National Park, especially relaxing on the beaches that give the park its name. We took advantage of the trails to enjoy exotic animals. At the end of the day we drive to Alajuela, a city about 1h from San Jose.

You can enjoy the peace and relax that you can feel in this National Park. I hope that I could see some more animals too. That's ok.

Outstanding
Aug. 2019 • Friends
I have been here twice. Marvin is exceptional at discussing the rainforest. his passion for his country and the rainforest are evident and this enhances the tour. I enjoyed the tram experience and seeing the sloth, toucans and the orchids. A truly enjoyable day and a highlight of my trip. However, no photos to help me remember the tram ride. Sad that I do not have any photos to show friends and family of us on the tram. So that is the only negative and why there is only a 4 rating. What they do is when you come down from the tram ride there is a photo taken of you in the tram-very quickly; however, it includes everyone on the tram. In my case I did not know any of the individuals on the tram with me and my friend. I could just hear people asking me 'who are those people'-my answer 'I do not know' and their reply 'so why are you in a photo with them. I am sure they could find a tram not in use and place in front of the beautiful rainforest there and a person could have photos made with family/friends. I would have bought several photos but did not buy any. A loss of money for the rainforest.
