Subject: What To Bring On A Carara National Park Tour
(Posted on Jan 7, 2014 at 11:23AM )

carara national park manuel antonio rainforestCarara National Park offers some of Costa Rica’s most exquisite landscapes, bringing travelers to the heart of the Central Pacific.

Those same travelers, however, must be properly prepared for all-day adventures.

When visiting the Manuel Antonio region be certain to bring these items:

Lightweight clothing

Favor light layers and breathable fibers, such as cotton or denim, to combat the park’s high humidity. Avoid sandals and other open-toed shoes. Choose sneakers that fasten securely instead.

Sun Protection

Bring a hat, sun glasses and sun screen into the park. Though the canopy may block some of the light, all-day hiking can expose guests to strong UV rays. Eliminate concerns of burns or heat exhuastion with appropriate support.


Insects are common in Carara. Be certain to apply repellent, therefore, before beginning a tour. Travelers should choose organic options when bringing their repellents into the park to reduce worries of environmental contamination. Avoid harsh chemical sprays or lotions.

Remember these items when planning a Manuel Antonio trip. They will provide the necessary comfort and protection for bird watching, fishing, zip-lining and more.
