Today you are free to enjoy the beach, the sun and sea, and the opportunity to spot different species of animals in their natural habitat.

At various points, the trails branch off and lead to four separate beaches: Espadilla Sur, Manuel Antonio, Escondida, and Playita, where you can swim in crystal clear, warm water.
