Costa Rica Monkeys

The White Face Monkey is our Favorite Monkey in Costa Rica. We were lucky enough to get up close and personal on our last trip to Costa Rica.

We just got back from our 2013 group tour to Costa Rica and it was awesome! Such a wonderful group of folks and we really made a great adventure out of it. Check out this shot of a white faced Costa Rican monkey. These guys are really smart and they aren’t shy either! We always look forward to the chance of spotting these amazing animals on each group trip to Costa Rica. Thanks to Alex and Abraham, our awesome driver and guide!

  1. I’d like to pet the monkey… though, something tells me it might bite my finger…

  2. He looks surprised to see you! It must have been amazing to get the shot!

  3. I lived in CR for 7 years and these guys were everywhere. Miss seeing wildlife like this.

    • Yeah it must have been awesome to wake up to the sounds of howler monkeys, toucans, frogs, and a million other things!

  4. That’s awesome! I don’t see them as regularly as I’d like here in Cancun, but once you get out into the surrounding Yucatan and Chiapas there’s plenty of variants.

    He looks a little pissed though =P
