What Types of Wildlife Can I Expect to See on My Costa Rican Vacation?
Costa Rica is a paradise for outdoor adventurers, and it’s a nature lover’s dream. Villa Punto de Vista is surrounded by the magic of the rainforest and the ocean, and is a phenomenal retreat for bird watchers and wildlife enthusiasts. The villa is located adjacent to Manuel Antonio National Park, a tropical nature reserve that’s replete with white-sand beaches, coral reefs, lush vegetation, and hundreds of animal species.
Monkeys, Toucans and Frogs in Costa Rica
Punto de Vista was built with the idea of celebrating the beauty of the natural world by bringing the outside in. Nature is always within sight and within reach at this Manuel Antonio luxury villa, thanks to the open spaces, outdoor areas, floor-to-ceiling windows, and frameless glass balcony railings.
Enjoy your morning mimosa as you watch the howler and squirrel monkeys playing in the trees, relax in the pool and listen to the parrots and parakeets chirping and squawking, or make use of the barbecue area as you marvel at the sloths up in the trees. Whether you’re visiting for a Costa Rican luxury wedding or family reunion, you might even get lucky enough to see the endangered white-headed capuchin monkey or one of the many iguana species.
Of all the luxury retreats Costa Rica has to offer, Punto de Vista has the best of all worlds. Nestled in a thriving and diverse natural utopia, the villa has panoramic views of the Pacific ocean, unparalleled access to unforgettable beaches and hiking trails, and unobstructed views of the lush jungles and coastal waters of Manuel Antonio National Park.
The Jungles, Mountains, and Beaches of Manuel Antonio National Park
Although it’s relatively small for national parks in Costa Rica, Manuel Antonio still has about 680 hectares of land within its boundaries. And along with having some of the best beaches in the world, the park is also home to over 100 mammal species and nearly 200 species of rare, tropical, and exotic birds, including:
● Motmots and potoos
● Hawks and turkey vultures
The park also offers guided tours, which are great team events if you’re visiting Costa Rica on a corporate retreat, and it makes for a lovely day trip for vacationing nature nuts! The tours take you through the hiking trails, help you better understand the complex ecosystems of the rainforest and ocean, and point out the local flora and fauna. These include bats, snakes, reptiles, frogs, and other creatures, like the raccoons who love to feed on the crabs that come up onto the beach.
Furthermore, if you’re there at the right time of year, you could also be fortunate enough to see the dolphins or migrating whales that are sometimes spotted in the waters surrounding the park’s many isles. As you can see, a trip to Costa Rica is the ideal place for any wildlife lover!
