I stayed at a guesthouse beside Cahuita National Park and a lot of animals visited the grounds every day. There were these Capuchins and also howler monkeys, caiman, iguanas and numerous birds. It was great to see so many animals without even leaving my accommodations. You can see a youngster on the mothers back in the third photo.
