The Manuel Antonio Nature Park and Wildlife Refuge is a 30 acre private refuge with nature exhibit tours with 1500 meters of guided trails, designed for all ages, conveniently located between Quepos and Manuel Antonio.

The Wildlife Refuge is currently researching and developing nature exhibits to help protect and reproduce local species in danger of extinction, including orchids, bromeliads, reptiles (turtles, caimans and crocodiles), and various butterfly species, including their host plants which are being planted in the Refuge properties.

There are three prominent exhibits, including Butterfly Botanical Gardens, an impressive Aquatic Garden, and the unique Reptile Lagoons as well as Medicinal Gardens and recycle programs. The Manuel Antonio Nature Park guided tours, including the very popular Jungle Night Tour, are part of a living laboratory of nature conservancy, an example of sustainable development, and where you will see a variety of Flora and Fauna, including monkeys, agoutis, and precious tropical hardwood trees. One of the most unique animals to observe here, is the titi or squirrel monkey (Siamiri oerstedii), which lives in a limited area in this region and is consider in danger of extinction.

As a conservation project, the mission is the protection of the wildlife and the education of the public to better appreciate these natural resources we depend upon for our survival. The guided tours are in English or Spanish. GT 120809 WLR
