If you are touring Manuel Antonio National Park on your own, please be aware that the road to the the National Park will be crowded with people selling their own services as “guides” and for parking or entrance tickets. They will dress like official rangers or guides and may have tags identifying them as park staff, but they are impostors with no relation to the park whatsoever. They will try and sell you overpriced tickets, tours and parking kilometers away from the entrance.
Please do not get intimidated by them, you can keep going all the way down to the park entrance and park there for C2000 -C3000 (less than $4-$6) and buy your tickets at the ticket booth ($16 for adults and children 12 and up).
