Manuel Antonio National Park

This is one of the most popular national parks in Costa Rica. The little town at the entrance gate has some funky hotels and the market is cool.
Inside the park is some beautiful flora and fauna, but unless you are a naturalist, you need a guide to be able to see most of what is there.

Our guide, Danny Garcia, was so enthusiastic, he quickly drew us into his love for the park and all its natural delights. He pointed out things that we never would have seen, showed them close up in his telescope, and even got great shots with our cameras through the scope, like the one below of the sloth.

A curious little white-faced monkey stole someone's sunscreen, but when it didn't taste good he dropped it.

Danny's tour ended at a really nice beach, where we floated in the waves and dreamed that we lived here.
