Today we took a 15 minute bus ride to Manuel Antonio, a small tourist town at the edge of the National Park of the same name.
The highlight for me was seeing (and being able to photograph) this Laughing Falcon. We also saw a humming bird sat on its nest. Sadly though when we returned the following day the nest had gone - a sign of the effects of occasional irresponsible tourism.
We also saw lots of monkeys, though in reality they are so tame as to be a pest, as are the racoons.
After the walk, I took the opportunity to swim for an hour or so in the Pacific breakers before heading into town for some lunch. I then caught the bus back Quepos for a bit of shopping and a lazy late afternoon.
