A small Zoo by the pool

Wednesday, November 24th, 2010

Today was the last full day in Manuel Antonio (time flies *way* too fast when you’re having fun!!) and we decided to spend it by the Costa Verde hotel pool. Not boring at all as the hotel advertises with ‘still more monkeys than people’…yes, the monkeys came out today, and some some other friendly animals kept us company too! 😉

First the ‘hotel-Iguana‘ that we named ‘Bram’ came to say hello, soon followed by his lady. 😉 A third Iguana (who secretly tries to impress da girl) sneaked up to us and posed for a close-up shot in the process.

And then, the monkeys came…and they came extremely close for wild ‘non-spoiled’ monkeys (just some meters); these animals keep amazing me.

The last animal that made it on camera today was an ant carrying one of ‘our’ potato chips, funky!

Many other animals such as eagles, colorful birds and butterflies didn’t want to pose for camera today, oh well… 😉

Below today’s photos, starting with the view from the hotel pool, not bad, eh?
