The thing we love most about Costa Rica is undoubtedly the wildlife. The variety of animals here is unmatched anywhere else we have ever traveled.
Just walking down a random street anywhere outside of the urban central valley, you are surrounded by colorful butterflies and hummingbirds and chances are great that you’ll see monkeys, ant-eaters and beautiful birds everywhere. If you look carefully you can even see sloths in the trees, and if you do a bit of research, you can see sea turtles nesting on the beach.
Where we are staying right now, we don’t even need to leave the house – the monkeys come right into our backyard! In the mornings we are usually woken up by the howler monkeys at 5am and a family of monkeys, including this cute baby monkey, likes to eat leaves from a tree in our yard.
