Monkeys and Sunsets

I thought I'd share more Costa Rica pictures. The sunsets are absolutely stunning! I take a walk along the beach just before 6pm each evening to see the sun go down.

I highly recommend coming here! 🙂

Another really cool thing about Costa Rica is the howler monkeys. I've been hearing about them but it wasn't until today that I saw them for the first time, and better yet, was able to get them on camera. As I was caught up by the entertainment of all the monkeys in the trees above, I felt a little sprinkle... a monkey was peeing! Yucky!

Here are a bunch of them up in a tree. They had just climbed from one big tree to the roof, across, and up into this tree... then continued over several trees until they were completely out of sight. Amazing!

Here's one of the babies. Isn't it just the cutest? I could pick it up with my hand (I didn't - but wanted to give you an idea of their size).

The babies hop on their mommy's back and away they go!

I think this little guy is the cutest ever!

Here's where I lounge when I need a break from the sun. It's been sunny and at least 32C every day. Paradise.

Till next time...

    Please tell me how I can rent a place where you are visiting! We are planning a mock honeymoon after renewing our vows this coming August. 15 years and counting. :)

    Ann - YOu can google Tamarindo. Hotel Diria is one of the best where I'll be staying tomorrow for a week, or Capitan Suizo is amazing. Hotel Arco Iris is another good one. Hotel Nahua is where Im staying now and I have the room with the full kitchen, so more apartment style.

    I think a kitchen would be AWESOME! I will check them out. Thanks for the ideas. :)

    Another quick question...Do you have any ideas for affordable travel options? I just looked up pricing on flights and they are REALLY high!

    Ann, I think you just need to bite the flight cost. Mine was expensive too and I looked at every possible deal.

    Darn, I was hoping you had some great idea or something. I really do appreciate your help. Have a wonderful and relaxing week! :)
