Prepare a checklist of things that you need to consider when making a planning decision such as an extended trip. This will help you consider all possible angles and data that you need so as you can have a well informed and rock solid decision.
First and foremost look at your budget first. Rich people and those loaded with cash will not even take a second look at this, but not everyone is rich and loaded. Put in mind that this Costa Rican escapade at the minimum can set you back USD 1,600 per head on accommodations alone, with a bit of touring and sightseeing. Double check if you can really part with this amount.
Manuel Antonio has plenty of things to do for the nature lover. So expect activities related to the outdoors and related to it and gauge if you are really up to it. There are plenty of hiking trails and other things to do in the 680 hectares expanse. As additional info, be informed that the park allows only a maximum of 600 people on weekdays and 800 on weekends. It is open on Tuesdays to Sundays only, from the hours of 7:30 am to 4:00 pm, so do plan accordingly.
Thirty seven hotels are there for the choosing that are 3km away from the park itself. They range from two star level accommodations all the way to four star with prices ranging from USD 56 on the low end to USD 1423 on the high end for an overnight stay. This range can of course change depending on the season and demand.
Duration of your stay will also dictate how much you will spend. Some hotels offer a fourth night for free for every three days that you spend with them. Other special offers they have also give free accommodation for children of a certain age.
Season will also affect your bookings when going to visit Manuel Antonio. December to April is usually the driest months and also the peak months as most go to Costa Rica for the beaches. However, it is best to visit during the wetter off season months of April to November when everything is greener and more alive, particularly when it comes to visiting Manuel Antonio reserve.
And most importantly of all keep in mind that you are traveling to a tropical country. Bring only light clothes, preferably made of cotton and also bring plenty of bug spray and sun block. In addition, be prepared to sweat a lot also. Should this article be of use to you and helped you out a lot, then do it pass it on.
