While going through some of my old photos I came across those photos from my trip to Costa Rica a few years ago. I went with a company called Adventure Life. Their mission is "to provide quality small group tours that have a positive impact on the local culture and environment." They really were great. We saw Arenal - an active volcano, the Monteverde Cloudforest, Quepos, and Manuel Antonio National Park. I wasn't very excited about going to Manuel Antonio as I had a pre-conceived notion that it was just a beach. After living in Florida for 10 years, I wasn't very interested in going to a beach! Along with seeing an active volcano, Manuel Antonio was the highlight of the trip. I love seeing wildlife and there were tons of monkeys! I was lucky enough to stumble upon the scene below. There is a man who has fallen asleep lying under the plaid shirt. His picnic lunch is in the white plastic bag.
I only wish that I had been able to get a picture of the man chasing after the monkey!
