TOURS AND ACTIVITIES
Zip Line Canopy Tour
Canopy Tour (zip line): Need we say more? Everyone’s “must do” tour. A unique adventure in the heart of the rainforest. The tour includes transportation, breakfast or lunch, guides and all equipment. It is recommended that you take hiking boots or athletic shoes and bug repellent. (No children under 6)
Horse Back Riding
Have a mountain adventure on horseback and ride through the rainforest, viewing tropical plants and many species of birds and animals on the way. Cool off in a natural pool at the base of a sparking waterfall.
Drive your own fully equipped ATV into the mountains of Quepos where your guide will lead you through rustic tropical settings, African Palm Plantations, a working cattle farm and typical Costa Rican towns. Ride through crystal clear streams and winding mountain paths to a breathtaking waterfall where you can swim in refreshing crystalline waters.
Take in the natural beauty of the Manuel Antonio Bay when you take off from the beach and glide high into the sky in a parasail. The stunning view from about 100 feet in the air will amaze you, as well as give you the best view of Costa Rica.
Riverboat Mangrove Tour
Enjoy the fascinating guided tour on a boat through the canals of the estuary. Your guide will provide comprehensive information about the self-sustaining mangrove system and will point out the many animals that co-exist there such as Caymans, bats, snakes, monkeys, and sometimes a glimpse of the rare silky anteater, or a sloth (maintaining its image as one of the world laziest mammals) and numerous marine birds. The tour departure time will depend on tides and lasts approximately 4 hours.
Butterfly Botanical Garden
This is the first butterfly garden and private nature reserve tour in the Manuel Antonio area. Here you will find more than 10 species of butterflies inside a uniquely designed atrium garden. Your guide will show you the host plants, and you will observe the four different stages of metamorphosis, (egg, larvae, chrysalis & adult butterfly), and perhaps witness the magical moment when a butterfly first opens its wings and takes flight! A must-see for nature lovers.
The beach concierge makes it easy for parties (large and small) to enjoy a beach day and alleviates any parking headaches you may encounter. Just let your concierge know what time you want to go to the beach and the beach concierge will pick you up and have a tent, table and chairs set up for your day of fun. Bottled water provided, along with a cool shower rinse before you return to your villa.
