Our spacious and comfortable rooms, all with garden views, provide the rest you need after a day of exploration. But before you delve into the beauty of the park, here are some tips to make the most of your adventure:
1. Prepare for the Weather: Manuel Antonio has a tropical climate, so it’s important to wear lightweight clothing, insect repellent, and sunscreen. Also, make sure to carry enough water to stay hydrated during your hike.
2. Visiting Hours: The park has regulated opening and closing times, so check the hours before planning your visit. Generally, the park is open from 7 a.m. to 4 p.m. It’s best to arrive early to avoid crowds and midday heat.
3. Guided or Self-Guided: You can choose between a self-guided hike or hiring a local guide. A guide can enhance your experience by pointing out wildlife that might go unnoticed.
4. Proper Footwear: Wear comfortable and sturdy walking shoes, preferably hiking boots. Trails can be slippery in the rainy season, so be cautious.
5. Bring Binoculars and a Camera: Don’t forget to bring binoculars for bird watching and a camera to capture the natural beauty surrounding you.
6. Maintain Distance: Respect wildlife and keep a safe distance. Do not feed animals or try to get too close to them.
7. Popular Trails: Some of the most popular trails include the Manuel Antonio Trail, the Mirador Trail, and the Puerto Escondido Trail. Each one offers spectacular views and unique wildlife-watching opportunities.
