Day 7 in Costa Rica (10/21)

Day 7 was an amazing day for pictures. Originally scheduled as a free day, Suzette decided we should take a tour of the mangroves. It was an excellent decision. We were set up on Cambute tour. As you will see, its posters are very accurate.They promised wildlife and we started to see some right away. This bird was awfully casual around crocodiles.
And of course, we saw more beautiful Costa Rica.

Lots of crocodiles:

But the highlight was again our tour-guide. He could accurately reproduce dozens of animal calls. Part of that skill included calling a troupe of capuchins. They proceeded to crawl all over us.
This serious guy was the leader of this troop of monkeys.


One decided to try and eat Suzette's hair clip.

It was quite a ride.
On our way out we even saw one of the famous symbols of Costa Rica (not sure why), the oxcart.
On our way back, we asked to be dropped off at Regalame so that we could pick up some souvenires. We took the bus back. This is the view from the bus stop.
We went home to our final visit by the endangered spider monkeys.
A final stroll on the beach.
A final frolic in the ocean.
A final Costa Rican sunset.

And a final dip in the pool.
Oh, and Robert got a final visit from a friendly crab that wanted a dip in the hot tub.
