Getting Shaken Down in Manuel Antonio National Park, Costa Rica
The White-Faced Capuchin Monkey is cute, agile, and quick. He’s also a thief. This little criminal makes his home in the Manuel Antonio Park of Costa Rica where life has been good lately. Much thanks goes out to the many beach goers who drop their bags in the pristine white sand and head for the rough and tumble waves of the Pacific Coast. With few amenities in the park, these bags are chock-full of essentials—food, sunscreen, even a change of clothes. A word to the wise—don’t beg the monkey to give your belongings back. He’s likely to look down from the tree, laugh, and throw your underwear at your head.
