Trip Report Manuel Antonio Park - The Hustle

Jump to last reply

The Tico hustlers will hassel you to park and pay $30USD should you drive your car into the general park area. They are very convincing, stepping out authoritatively in front of your car and asking you if you are going to the park or to the hotels. They will be gesturing for you to go to the right where you can park, pay $30, get a tour guide (extra$) and they will do you the service of watching your car for you.

If you do park in their area you will have about a 400 metre walk to the entrance of the park. Your tour guide will cost $90.00 for two people for a "private tour".

Just do yourself a favor and stay in your car and keep driving. Ignore them and anyone else approaching your car with talk of towing or watching it. You can say you are on your way to the Korean hotel located by the entrance of the park. Once you are nearly at the M.A. park gates you can park on the street or pay a more reasonable $5.00 to park your car in a makeshift lot.

Hope that helps.
