These days Trip Advisor has become a trusted, household name for travelers. Not only does this world-wide-website encompass every aspect of travel, but also relies on the opinions of the same travelers to qualify them. A 5-star rating on a private website may sound suspect, but a 5-star rating with 100 reviews from Trip Advisor holds some weight.
Thus, when Trip Advisor’s “Traveler’s Choice” awards come out every year, they draw attention. A category like ‘Top 25 Beaches of the World’ even more so. Let’s face it—there are tons of amazing beaches on the planet.
Which is why it is gratifying to see that Manuel Antonio Beach is one of the Top 25 Beaches of the World in 2014.
The competition is tough. Beaches like Elafonissi, in Greece, Lanikai Beach, in Hawaii, and the famous Baths, on Virgin Gorda, in the British Virgin Islands are not only iconic in their respective areas, but also much more well-known.
Then again—it’s not that surprising. In 2013, the Trip Advisor People’s Choice awards rewarded Manuel Antonio Beach as the ‘#1 Beach in Central America’. Manuel Antonio national park has been lauded in many a well-known periodical, from Forbes to National Geographic. There’s scarcely a video about Costa Rica that doesn’t contain an image of famous Cathedral Point, within the park. Manuel Antonio has become iconic for its beaches, rainforests and wildlife.
Without doubt, one of the qualities that sets Manuel Antonio Beach aside from the rest is the relatively sparse development in the area. Manuel Antonio offers smaller and more luxurious accommodations for travelers—boutique hotels and vacation rental villas rather than huge hotels and resorts. There is a list of great restaurants, and fresh seafood abounds. Travelers can enjoy the unspoiled beauty of the beaches and still have all the comforts and amenities.
When travelers want to find the best beaches in the world, they listen to the recommendations of the people who have been there in the past. Trip Advisor speaks with the voice of travelers, and with Manuel Antonio beach--the travelers have spoken!
