TripAdvisor, the world’s most popular user review site for travel destinations, has recently declared that Playa Manuel Antonio on Costa Rica’s Pacific Coast is one of the Top 10 Beaches in Central America. Coming in at the number two position, TripAdvisor described Playa Manuel Antonio as a “gorgeous beach” with a gentle tide and warm water, all the ingredients necessary to make it a swimmer’s and surfer’s paradise.
Playa (Spanish for “beach”) Manuel Antonio and the town of Manuel Antonio are about fifteen minutes’ drive from the airport at Quepos or can be reached by car in about two hours from the national capital, San Jose. The beach also borders the Manuel Antonio Park, one of Costa Rica’s smallest but most popular parks thanks to its diverse landscape and abundance of wildlife, including hundreds of bird species.
