Travel Tips for Puntarenas

macaw sanctuary and monkey feeding

by ljlluv

First let me highly recommend Dimas, who was our tour guide and picked us up at the Fiesta Hotel, while we were on a Caravan Tour. Dimas had cold water or beer for us (we don't drink, but a nice touch nonetheless) First stop was at a house where a woman met us with a big bunch of bananas. We looked up to the trees and there we saw many many monkeys (I think spider or capuchin) and we proceeded to feed them (as in pic) Then we went on several bumpy long roads until we got to a little place I like to call heaven. The macaw sanctuary not only had macaws flying free all over in a sparkling array of colors, but all types of monkeys, including howler, capuchin and spider monkeys roaming free in the trees. In addition, there are several resident three toed sloths hanging around. As a nature and parrot lover, I thought I had died and gone to parrot heaven.

Dimas was the best as a tour guide and this trip was so much better than the 6 hour (or more) round trip excursion Caravan had planned for the Manuel Antonio park. He even emailed me wonderful picture which complemented the ones we had taken. We were the envy of our entire tour trip, two other people actually overheard us talking about planning this and got their own driver to take them.

Situated a short hour and one half from San Jose, Puntarenas is an active, bustling beach town. Most of the visitors are local which means better prices and a more authentic foreign experience.

The beach is paralleled by the Paseo de Los Turistas. Hotels and shops are on the land side, and smaller restaurants can be found abutting the sand on the oceqan side. A green park and a low stone wall border the paseo in front of the beach.

Some years ago the city had a bad rap because of cholera in the seafood, dengue fever, and nasty, dirty beaches. The town fathers got together and cleaned the place up and it's a healthy, attractive place to go again.

Frequent bus service from San Jose provides access via highway, and you can also take the Tico Tren, a weekend only passenger service which operates from San Jose's Pacific Train Station.
