Finally, a monkey
After hoping and guessing on monkey calls and attempting to lure with food scraps, Manuel Antonio delivered our one demand of Costa Rica: making monkey friends. We didn't think it was too much to ask, and as expected they really liked us. What monkey wouldn't? In addition, this town had a much more populated beach, fun and friendly locals, and great restaurants right on the shore. We chose a dilapidated hostel that provided run-in's with a crab and a roach, but ended our trip in such an upbeat, beautiful place. This is a great destination for good meals, beach soccer, a hike through the national park, and monkey-sighting. It's a little more pricey than the smaller stops we made and more tourist-y, but your typical beach spot to lay out, para-sail, or jet ski. Hourly bus rides to San Jose for your departure are a convenient plus as well.
