July 28, 2020
As traveler’s look for more ways to maximize on privacy while still getting out and about on vacation, we thought you would want to hear about these 5 totally private activities you can do while enjoying your Manuel Antonio vacation stay with us at Villa Perezoso. With a local industry heavily-reliant on tourism to succeed, one of the first areas of business for re-opening in Manuel Antonio was traveler safety. As of August 1st, Costa Rica will open it’s borders to Canada, The UK and the European Union. In anticipation of the return of international tourism, we have highlighted 5 of our favorite private activities.
Manuel Antonio National Park Tour
Imagine hiking through the rainforest with just you and your travel group and a guide who has been fully trained in safety standards. Monkeys? Check. Toucans? Also check. Scarlett Macaws? Of course. Sounds of the ocean waves lapping against the sand in the back-drop? No trip to the Manuel Antonio National Park would be complete without it. This fully private tour is a great way to get outdoors and in touch with nature, without having to face crowds or do anything too extreme. This is a wonderful activity for people who like to walk, hike and enjoy wildlife. You also get a chance to stay inside of the park and enjoy the beautiful and secluded beaches after the tour is over.
White Water Rafting
Looking for a bit more adventure and don’t mind getting a bit wet? This fully-private tour is the perfect mix between relaxation and adventure. Usually between a Class II and Class III, rafting on the local Savegre river is the perfect way to get away from it all with your private travel group. You’ll float down areas that will feel like a “lazy river” and then you’ll have some excitement on some of the areas with rapids, plus you’ll take a short hike to a waterfall and then have a fully private, a-la-carte lunch back at the rafting lodge.
Feel like sitting back and being pampered on a private boat while sipping a beverage and taking in the beauty of the Manuel Antonio coastline? If so, this exclusive tour is for you. Complete with a chef on-board, you’ll be served drinks and lunch or dinner based on your selected tour time. Enjoy searching for dolphins, watching the sun set at sea, and touring through the different beaches of the Manuel Antonio coastline. There is no better way to relax than on a private boat in one of the world’s most beautiful places!
Hiking Trails to Manuel Antonio beaches
Great for exercise and nature lovers, just a few minutes from the villa are some of Costa Rica’s most breath-taking (and calorie-burning!) trails. Complete with sweeping ocean views, rain forest canopy and exotic wildlife, hiking here is a great way to get out and experience the area’s natural beauty. Trails run the length of the Manuel Antonio coastline and swerve in and out and up and down the various mountains along the way. Visits to semi-private beaches are included at almost every stop, so don’t forget to wear your swimsuit under your hiking clothes! Guides are available for those who don’t want to navigate themselves. Either way you go, exploring the Manuel Antonio coastline on foot is a spectacular activity to experience!
Get out on the water and up close with the Manuel Antonio coastline. Enjoy beautiful coves and docking at a semi-private beach for snorkeling and swimming. Jet skis tours can be done in the mornings or the afternoons and will be exclusive for your group and the guide. No better way to be out on the water than on a jet ski!
You can also do private yoga and pilates classes, either at our local wellness center, or out on our yoga deck overlooking the Manuel Antonio National Park. Of course there are so many other fun and relaxing vacation activities to do here, but these are a few of our favorites! So, if you’re in need of a change of scenery, but reticent about getting outside of your travel bubble, no need to worry any further! We’ve got you covered…
