The World's Most Beautiful National Parks

And then there’s the relatively new Manuel Antonio National Park in Costa Rica, founded a century after Yosemite. Here is a stunning combination of beaches and coral reefs, perfect for snorkeling and exploring the area’s famous tangle of mangroves. Rainforest jungles remain untouched habitats for Brownthroated Three-toed Sloths, iguanas, Central American squirrel monkeys and birds of extraordinary colors. One of Costa Rica’s smallest national parks, Manuel Antonio is nevertheless one of its most popular, with activities ranging from white-water rafting and sea kayaking to horseback riding on one of the park’s four beaches. Note: Best of all, this wonderful National Park is located just 30 minutes from Portasol.
