Flag of Costa Rica  , Province of Puntarenas,
Saturday, February 27, 2010

We found our way back to what we love, wildlife at Manuel Antonio National Park, in Spanish the Parque Nacional Manuel Antonio.  The  park was Established in 1972 with an area enumerating 4,014 acres (16.24 km2), it is the destination of as many as 150,000 visitors annually and well-known for its beautiful beaches and hiking trails. 

Although the park is Costa Rica's smallest national park, the diversity of wildlife is unequaled with 109 species of mammals and 184 species of birds. Both Brown-throated Three-toed Sloth (see picture) and Hoffmann's Two-toed Sloth are a major feature, as are three of Costa Rica's four monkey species — the Mantled Howler monkey, Central American Squirrel Monkey, and White-headed Capuchin monkey (see pictures). We loved the plant life and the view of the ocean.
