Leaving Manuel Antonio

Like most days here, we awoken to playful monkeys foraging in the canopy outside our windows. An unexpected new visitor joined us – a 3 foot iguana perched at the top of the canopy – 200 feet above the ground, basking in the sun

Jet skiing yesterday was the highlight of the trip. The land always seems to take on mystical beauty from the water.

Going up the estuaries and seeing thousands of herons and other birds, fishing monkeys, alligators, and huge trees whose roots above the water create an entire habitat that has been there, untouched for 100 years.

It is hard to leave this place, but alas, we are packing up to go. We drove down to the beach this morning but small wave conditions derailed those plans.. We are taking a final pass through the condo before loading up the truck to go to Jaco.
