Costa Rica Part Three

On our last day in Tortuguero we traveled by boat to a sister resort and took a walk through the gardens and the rain forest. There were lots of howler monkeys climbing in the trees and on the roofs right in the resort. The hanging one had a baby on its back. They are the largest monkey species in America, and their sound can be heard for up to three miles away.

We saw many beautiful plants on our trip. Here are just a few.

This chameleon would have been pretty hard to find without the guide pointing it out.

There were a bunch of these spiders on the side of the porch of our cabin. Yikes!

Wooden carved benches with animals of the rain forest were all over the resort. They were absolutely beautiful.

The Capuchin monkeys are quite the pests at the resort. The bartender told us they steal the pineapple for drinks right off the bar top. These guys were enjoying their stolen pineapple in the bushes next to the bar.

And this fellow was looking for some loot in the garbage bin at the boat dock.

In the afternoon we took another boat to the small village of Tortuguero. It's hard to imagine how these people live in such a remote area. This was the hello at the boat dock.

This is the beach at the Caribbean Sea in Tortuguero, the Atlantic side of Costa Rica. Sea turtles come here to lay their eggs, but it was not the right season. It was pretty misty while we were in town, typical for this area.
