We went to the Manuel Antonio Preserve and along the drive in the small town before the preserve, we saw a monkey crawling across the electrical line from one side of the street to the other. After we saw him, we looked up and saw two more sitting right in the middle of the street on an electrical line. So Cool, Monkeys!!! We got to the preserves and waited in a sweltering line to buy tickets, but they were closed for a little while, not sure why. We about melted waiting in line and decided to give up and go get a drink at the bar down the little road. Just as we got to the bar I looked up and saw a troop of about 12 monkeys playing around the roof and pool of the bar/hotel. No tickets needed. The pictures did not come out well as we could see them swinging through the trees, playing along the railing and climbing on the roof. Oh well, we saw them. Spent a week at Mark’s house in Costa Rica and loved it. Ate some great food, saw monkeys and macaws, went zip lining through the rainforest, etc. What a beautiful, if a bit humid for us Arizona folks, place. I could have stayed here longer, but time to move on to Panama.
