Costa Rica: Manuel Antonio National Park

Today, we travel from Monteverde to Quepos.

On our way there, we had a chance to stop and admire real crocodiles from the bridge above the Tarcoles River.

Many crocodiles live in this river and there are many boat tours to see them. Intrepid does not support those boat tours because they allow people to feed the animals. Intrepid has a very strong policy that wild animals should to be respected and should not be fed by tourists.

Today’s itinerary is:

Travel through the mountains to Quepos by private minibus (around 5 hours). Located close to the beautiful Pacific beaches and exotic wildlife of Manuel Antonio National Park, Quepos is a laidback town with a vibrant nightlife. Perhaps get into the spirit with a sunset sail around the glorious coast, looking out for dolphins and whales which sometimes swim close by. 

Here are some pictures from our tour of Manuel Antonio National Park. The monkeys were definitely the biggest highlight.

The nearest beach in Antonio Manuel:

If we surrendered to earth’s intelligence we could rise up rooted, like trees. – Rainer Maria Rilke

    Glorious, amazing, breathtaking!

    Guru Sloth is very wise to use a tree as a metaphor.

    The ancient symbol of the Tree has been found to represent physical and spiritual nourishment.

    And that is what comes to mind when we see your amazing photos Joanna.

    Love Alda and Angie
