In Manuel Antonio we are known for our famous national park full of lush, tropical foliage and wildlife. While many come to experience the jungle, there’s something else that’s a popular attraction around here: Manuel Antonio Beach, also known as Playa Espadilla.
The mile-long sandy beach stretches along the Manuel Antonio coastline near the entrance to the national park and is known around town as “Playa Numero Uno” literally translating as Beach Number One, and it’s easy to see why.
With soft sand and sparkling surf, enjoy swimming, water activities, or lounging under a beach umbrella in a family-friendly atmosphere. And if you’re in the mood for a bite to eat or a drink to accompany your view, our partner property Buena Vista Beach Villas is right there for you.
There’s nothing like a beach day when you’re on vacation, and we look forward to introducing you to our coast!
