Squirrel monkeys

Squirrel monkeys

Yesterday we spent the day in Costa Rica’s Manuel Antonio National Park on the Pacific coast. We hired a wildlife guide in the morning in hopes of seeing tons of animals that we knew we would miss with our own naked eye. While we did see a few things, the tour was mostly a dud. We saw some sloths, which was cool, a frog, some forest crabs and a wierd bug. No monkeys, to my dismay. After the hike, we hiked around a bit more to get some great ocean views and then we headed to the beach. Once again, I got a little beat up by some huge waves. Gotta love the ocean though, right? Even though we hired a guide, we ended up seeing the most wildlife on our own when we went walking around town. We came across a long stretch of jewelry vendors with booths and above them was a web of branches stretching all across the road. In the branches, there were about twenty squirrel monkeys playing. So cute. I will admit it, I was a major a tourist and took tons of pictures. But I couldn’t help myself. We just don’t have monkeys in Colorado!
