this is day 5 in manuel antonio costa rica and also the last post of costa rica series. we did stay for 1 more day in costa rica; however, i accidentally deleted all my day 6 pictures 😥
day 5 we went to check out manuel antonio national park in the morning and we did whitewater rafting in the afternoon with Iguana Tours. our schedule was pretty tight and our hotel la mansion inn was very helpful to squeeze two tours in one day for us.
after a short ride we arrived to Manuel Antonio National Park. you can come here without a tour or tour guide, but it was a very good idea that we came with one. it was ridiculously hard to spot animals. it took forever for me to find the animals even the tour guide pointed out for me. i probably wont be able to see any otherwise. the tour guide also carries a telescope with him and he can take pictures of the animals for you through the telescope.
after Manuel Antonio National Park, we joined another whitewater rafting on Naranjo River tour with Iguana Tours
for dinner, i was too lazy to do researches, so we went to Mar Luna which was recommended by a girl that worked in our hotel.
grilled seafood for two. they dont have this on the menu, so just ask for it. RIDICULOUSLY DELICIOUS!!!!! i was really mind blown by this grilled seafood platter. probably best grilled seafood ive ever had. they were freshly caught in the morning and grilled over volcanic ash (instead of charcoal). super flavorful and tasty. buttery, juicy, super fresh seafood with a bit of smokiness. this worth the trip to manuel antonio alone. simply amazing!
