Friday 20th October 2017 – Manuel Antonio National Park and Quepos – San Jose

After and early breakfast we were taken by minibus to the entrance of Manuel Antonio National Park.  We spent a couple of hours walking along the trails and spotting wildlife.


This trip was far more successful than our visit to Monteverde National Park and we were able to spot lots of different animals.


The park itself was extremely humid and very warm and we were all soon dripping with perspiration.  However, it was worth it and especially when I managed to spot a sloth in the trees!


In the park we visited a couple of the beaches which were home to even more animals!

We were due to leave at 12.30 and so we headed out of the park for some much needed refreshment.

The journey back to San Jose took about 4.5 hours as we arrived during rush hour.


We got back to the hotel Don Carlos at 6pm and met up with the rest of the group after a quick shower for the farewell meal and a few drinks!


We were particularly glad that we were not joining some of the group on their 3am transfer to the airport!
