Manuel Antonio Nature Reserve: A Photo Essay

One week into my recent trip to Costa Rica, on a day off from surfing classes, myself and some friends thought we’d venture south to the much talked about Manuel Antonio National Park and see if we could spot some sloths and other native creatures. This is what we saw (with the help of our awesome guide Willem).

*Note: Next time I go anywhere, I’ll try to write down or remember the actual names of the creatures I see! But anyway. Go to Manuel Antonio. Get a guide to help you find all the animals. You won’t be disappointed.
