Parque Nacional Manuel Antonio gets own stamp

This is a proof of the Manuel Antonio stamp.

The post office has come out with a stamp honoring Parque National Manuel Antonio, widely considered the crown jewel of Costa Rican environmental protection.

The stamp has been issued to mark the Día de los Parques Nacionales.

Correos de Costa Rica said that the stamp bears a photo taken by Oscar Masís Chaves showing the famous Punta Catedral. The park is 40 years old this year.

The stamp has a value of 545 colons or about $1.11 at the current exchange rate. The post office also is selling a three-stamp set contained in a folder that has a photo of two white-tailed deer on a beach at Manuel Antonio.

Correos noted that the Manuel Antonio park gets some 318,000 visitors a year. The park is known all over the world for its beaches, trails and wildlife.
