What to Expect

Although located very close to Manuel Antonio and near the Jaco area, this hiking tour and natural sanctuary adventure in a biodiverse reserve is dramatically different in terms of wildlife and plant species than our “other” national park in Manuel Antonio.


Enjoy a relaxing hike for a few hours through the tropical rain forest with our highly educated, bilingual naturalists and guides. On your Carara experience, unlike in Manuel Antonio National Park, you will spot unforgettable giant red Macaws and extraordinary crocodiles lying below the Tárcoles River Bridge adjacent to the Carara Park.


This hike, nature oriented, full-day adventure allows visitors, families, and large groups who haven’t driven to Manuel Antonio from San José a chance to observe firsthand the interesting, unique topography of Costa Rica’s Pacific Coast. Thus, your drive to and from Carara will be an experience itself as you wind through African Palm Oil Plantations, rice fields, cattle ranches, and local villages along the way.


If you, your family, or intimate groups have a chance, discover another Costa Rican treasure just outside Manuel Antonio’s backyard. And once again, come and discover the biodiversity and delicate balance between preservation and eco-tourism with the Manuel Antonio specialist, yet leave with new knowledge of how you can extend the experience to others when you return home. 

Frequently Asked Questions
