Just How Touristy Is Manuel Antonio?

Jump to last reply

We are trying to find a beach location for our family's third trip to CR (I have another post going on that) - and now I am starting to reconsider MA. I have always avoided because it seems so touristy and we like to have some space and we dont like crowds. We have 4 little kids, though, who would love to see some monkeys hanging around!

So, how touristy is it and is it really crowded?

Is it hard to drive from a rental house to the town and down to the park/beaches?

Is parking hard to come by?

We probably wont be walking due to the ages of our kids (they are all for hikes and all....but I don't want to lug beach gear and walk them alongside a road to get to town)

If we are going late April/early May - how dry will it be? We have never been in the dry season - or just as it is ending. Are things actually brown? Or is it still beautiful and green with just less rain? Silly question....but I'm wondering!

Thanks for your input!
Shannon
