Everyone wants to know what the prettiest beach in Costa Rica is. Well, I hate to jump on the band wagon and agree with everyone else but at the end of the day Manuel Antonio is the prettiest beach in all of Costa Rica. Based on just sheer beauty of sitting and looking at sand, water, sky, and sun. The prize without question goes to Manuel Antonio.
The access is easier than anywhere you will find in the country. There are still more monkeys than people, plenty of places to stay and eat make Manuel Antonio a must stop if you are a first time visitor to Costa Rica or on a quest for jaw-dropping beach tour.
The beaches located in the park of Manuel Antonio are the ones we are referring to. Vibrant green reflection off the virgin rainforest make the water look like a green velvet clothe stretched out from the white sand. Is this beach too crowded? Probably. Have they developed the park too much? Maybe. Can you find a beach that is prettier in all of Costa Rica? I argue not.
