It can be tricky travelling with a family. One person might want to see local plants and animals, another might prefer hiking, and yet another would choose the beach. The great thing about Manuel Antonio National Park in Costa Rica is that you get the best of all these activities in one destination.

The hike was lovely, and we enjoyed seeing many kinds of beautiful and exotic plant life. Since it's a rain forest, we came prepared for rain, but it stayed dry as we walked through this biologically diverse national park. My youngest daughter loved the palm leaf cricket the guide made for her!
