Manuel Antonio Lowers Daily Capacity

In an effort to protect Manuel Antonio National Park has recently lowered the daily capacity to 1,200  from 3,000 tourists.

However, we're here to provide you with all the information you need to make the most of your visit.

Manuel Antonio National Park

Purchasing tickets and self-driving to Manuel Antonio National Park

To streamline your entrance to the park, we highly recommend purchasing tickets online through the official website, or at a hotel’s tour desk or reception, travel agency, or with us at Tucanes Tours.

Avoid unauthorized resellers close to park’s entrance who may take advantage of unsuspecting visitors. Remember to have your full name, ID numbers, and preferred visitation date ready.

The park operates from 7 am to 4 pm, except on Tuesdays when it is closed to give the fauna a break from human guests. Ticket prices are reasonable, with adults and children aged 6 years or older at $16.00 USD plus tax, children aged 2-5 at $5 plus tax, and babies under 2 years old enter for free.

If you're planning on driving to the park, we advise against parking on the street. Instead, opt for designated parking lots or inquire with nearby properties that may offer parking facilities for a nominal fee of approximately $10 USD. Keep in mind that during peak times, accessibility can be challenging. As a precaution, never leave any valuables in your vehicle as petty theft incidents can occur.
