Located within walking distance of Manuel Antonio National Park, Arenas del Mar is the only true beachfront resort in Manual Antonio. Here you’ll have 11 acres of private nature reserve to explore and a pristine beach to call your own.
When traveling to Costa Rica as a family, visit the Manuel Antonio National Park is a must. This park, while small, is teeming with Central American wildlife. You’ll slowly walk through the park alongside a guide who will point out wildlife large and super small through a spotting scope. Then, enjoy a swim at the parks award-winning beach before continuing on with your day.
And we especially love the Ocean View Suites here. There is one master bedroom with plenty of room for children to sleep in the main living area (the beds can be made up and put away daily), a large balcony overlooking the ocean, and two full bathrooms.
