The Manuel Antonio National Park, nestled in a corner of Costa Rica where the Pacific Ocean melds with the tropical jungle, hides the impressive villa of Casa Anjali, a sanctuary of peace and tranquility. However, the park is also the backdrop for numerous lively activities.
Manuel Antonio is the perfect destination for those with an adventurous spirit who want to spend days surfing or making excursions to stunning untouched and remote spots. More than that, Manuel Antonio is a sport fishing paradise.
Throughout the country, sport fishing is now part of the culture. Costa Rica hosts important world events such as the Marina Pez Vela international tournament, and the Offshore World Championship, considered the largest and most prestigious sport fishing series in the world, bringing together thousands of fans and people involved in the sport every year.
The coastal waters of this area of Costa Rica boast of more than 70 world records in sport fishing. The most common offshore species are the Sailfish, giant Blue Marlin, Tuna, and Dorado, among many others, whereas Snapper and the local Roosterfish are caught inshore. Sport fishing can be practiced not only at a competitive level, but also by beginners who want to include it in their vacation plans. It’s a wonderful opportunity to delve into the local character in a unique and original way.
To ensure the care of the species and preserve marine biodiversity, catch and release fishing is encouraged.
In addition to its unique link with sport fishing, Manuel Antonio is one of the most dynamic places in Costa Rica, thanks to other entertainment opportunities including: snorkeling in its clear waters, guided walks through the National Park, visits to The Rainmaker reserve with its hanging bridges, waterfalls, and natural pools, and for adrenaline lovers, paragliding at more than 180 meters. Accompany all this with a luxury accommodation at Casa Anjali, from where you have easy access to all these activities, and make it an unforgettable experience you’ll want to repeat.
