Relaxing Massage with the sound of the sea and the birds
Our physiotherapist offers you the perfect massage during your holidays:
The benefits of this type of massage are very varied and range from helping to combat anxiety to improve the nervous system.
The decontracting massage is used to relax the muscles in order to alleviate the tensions that can produce in them the stress, the lack of rest or the bad postures. Thus, this massage is not only highly recommended for those people who, due to an excess of physical exercise, have been able to carry a muscle. Also for those other people who, due to a sedentary lifestyle, force certain postures or adopt other unsuitable ones.

Both brown-throated three-toed sloth and Hoffmann's two-toed sloth are a major feature, as are three of Costa Rica's four monkey species — the mantled howler monkey, Central American squirrel monkey, and white-headed capuchin monkey. black spiny-tailed iguana, green iguana, common basilisk, white-nosed coati and many snake and bat species are also common in the park. Included in the 184 bird species are toucans, woodpeckers, potoos, motmots, tanagers, turkey vulture, parakeets andhawks. Dolphins can be observed there, as well as the occasional migrating whale.

As you navigate south, you will pass by islands and incredibly beautiful coastline. The hills of Manuel Antonio are covered with rainforest that extends all the way to the beaches and rock outcroppings. It truly is a magical sight, almost as though you are viewing a live Jurassic Park!
Along the way a guide will be on the lookout for dolphins, whales, birds and sea turtles. Dolphins can be observed nearly year round and frequently cruise along next to the boat. Whales from both hemispheres pass through at different times of the year, though the best time is in the heart of the rain season, September. Sea turtles can be seen year round with the best possibilities between May and November. Of course, you must keep in mind that in nature, nothing is on demand and this is not a wildlife observation tour.
