In the central part of the Pacific coastline in Costa Rica, there is a unique piece of land best known as Manuel Antonio. This National Park has a natural extension called Punta Catedral. In the past, there was no connection with the place, so it was more like an independent island. However, throughout her constantly active tectonic plates system, mother nature created a path that put together both the island and mainland, giving people the possibility to explore and get to know more about this particular latitude.
The path of Punta Catedral’s protected area has been a way for visitors to hike and learn about the plant and animal life that is unique to the concept of a tropical rainforest. As visitors explore, they will be likely to find a large number of mammals that inhabit the place such as three different species of monkeys, two and three-toed sloths, snakes, and several kinds of lizard and bird species.
The views from the summit of this 300 feet (ASL) paradise will permit anyone to get spectacular pictures. As the trail begins the descent, the cool breeze will reward anyone who took the challenge to go beyond the idea of Manuel Antonio as only a place to swim.
If you have asthma or have difficulty traversing a large number of steps we do not recommend to take this trail. The place is really humid, even on cloudy days, so do not forget a bottle of water so you can stay hydrated while on your tropical adventure.
