Gorgeous beach, the highlight of the park. Some people report it being crowded but I didn't think so at all, the actual beach that is. Quite a few people walk down the path to it but only look for a minute. Watch your bags especially...More
We visited Parque Nacional Manuel Antonio last week and loved it! The beach is white sand, clean, and water beautiful blue. My son and husband enjoyed swimming, while I was keeping an eye on our belongings so that the monkeys would not run away with...More
Beach is never too crowded, compared to many other beaches. Water is blue, and many activities to do on the beach. From parasailing to jet skiing. The parasailing will take you up 200 plus feet, which give you a magnificent view of the area. Beach...More
This beach was more than a bit of a surprise ...came for the jungles and wildlife, and discovered a beautiful beach. Over a few trips to Costa Rica, I've had the opportunity to visit many beaches, and this is definitely right up there! To go...More
Be sure to spend a day in this wonderful park walking trails but be sure to slow down and be still enough to let the forest come alive around you. A tour guide is always a great option but not needed. Definitely do the beach...More
We really enjoyed the park, the plants and the wildlife! WARNING there are many fake officials trying to get you to park in their parking lot about a half mile down the road. They stand in the road, waving you in, with a clip board,...More

From the parking area to the beach area is mostly flat and wheel chair accessible. The last 50 yards or so has a side walkway that is a gradient going downwards, so it is easy to go down. But coming up that walkway would require some effort and help because now you are going up. That is the only part that I feel might give some problems.
Hi Dawn: When we came here in Jan., we entered the Nat'l Park and walked to the beach which was at the end of the trail. There was no separate cost - just our fee to enter the park. We did talk to a couple we met along... More
Hi Dawn: When we came here in Jan., we entered the Nat'l Park and walked to the beach which was at the end of the trail. There was no separate cost - just our fee to enter the park. We did talk to a couple we met along the trail who said you could come by boat, but I don't have any details. Joan H
PS: Try to go early before the crowds on the trail, as well as, the beach.
