It has been fourteen years since I visited the country of Costa Rica until going last week. I wasn't sure what to anticipate in terms of how the country had changed. Selfishly, I hoped everything was the same - every restaurant, lack of hotels, kindness of the people. Costa Rica did not disappoint.
It was right before the entrance to the park where we were able to come very close to the wonderful and endangered squirrel monkeys. They are super friendly and slightly aggressive if there is a banana near - don't feed the animals!
