  • We had booked a guide online in advance via their homepage. We came here ourselves and met before at a restaurant. Then we went to the park together. Parking has been nicely organized by the guide. It is best to drive to just before the park and park there for a fee. The area around the park is very touristy and crowded in the high season. We didn't have that much going on in August (low season). In the park itself the guide has led us around very well and gave us some animals (finally sloths;) you wouldn't see without the sharp eye of these people and their telescope (so it's worth taking a guide, I think!). The park is very compact but beautiful and is definitely worth it, although there is a lot going on. We ended the day on the beach Playa Manuel Antonio in the park. (Note: Capuchin monkeys and raccoons have shed their shyness from humans and scour backpacks for edibles. That is the downside of tourism. The park is closed on Monday).
