Title: white-faced monkeys, crabs, iguanas, hummingbirds, etc Location: Manuel Antonio, Costa Rica
hmmm...where were we? Manuel Antonio was like diving into Animal Planet for a day...if you can´t be bothered checking it out on the net, it´s a peninsula with a few of the nicest beaches either of us has seen and all the jungle you could ask for...if it hadn´t been for the entry fee we would have stayed a week! Cheapskates that we are, we packed it all into one day, hiking round the whole park in about 6 hours..we bumped into white-faced monkeys, crabs, iguanas, hummingbirds and a whole family of sloths taking a beachside siesta in a tree. We even saw (and HEARD) about two dozen howler monkeys going wild by the not-so-main road...apparently having asailed an American tourist with airborn coconuts a little while earlier.
After nearly two weeks doing big cities Quepos and its laid back beach life really took our fancy so we stayed another day catching waves and getting burnt! Then it's back to Spanish classes at our language school! They are great!
