Manuel Antonio National ParkJanuary 3 in Costa Rica ⋅ 🌧 82 °F
Last night, I said goodbye to Kris and Lynne as they are wrapping up their trip. I, on the other hand, have just begun mine, so last night we had a farewell dinner and this morning went our separate ways, they back to San Jose and me into Manuel Antonio National Park.
My purpose for taking a guided tour into the park was to see the animals, but before I even left the hotel, I already had pictures of capuchin monkeys and scarlett macaws. Gorgeous!
The park was even better! We saw so many animals: both two- and three-toed sloths, howler and capuchin monkeys, Jesus Christ basilisk lizard (it runs on top of the water) and its relative the helmet hat lizard, an aguti, a white ibis, a black iguana, a green vine snake that was in the same location as yesterday because it ate a baby hummingbird (video), and so many more. It's was just amazing. Now we're having a snack before going to the beach.
