Costa Rica National Parks

Manuel Antonio

The biodiverse natural heritage of Costa Rica is what the country is most famous for with a quarter of the country included within one of its over 160 protected natural areas.

The smallest Costa Rica national park is Manuel Antonio yet visited more frequently as the most biodiverse with four enchanting sandy beaches.

The Monteverde Cloud forest reserve is another of the most popular of Costa Rica's national parks, particularly for those who are looking to explore the treetops by zipline or a canopy tour.

Despite Tortuguero being another of the most biodiverse of Costa Rica's national parks, it and Cahuita are less visited due to their more isolated location and the preying mosquitos.
