      ... excited than we were about the wildlife we spotted.

      In the end, Manuel Antonio acquitted itself quite well today, despite the negative first impressions we had of the area yesterday. Sure, the place is completely overrun with tourists, but it still managed to deliver a wildly entertaining experience, albeit different from what we had shared down at Drake Bay. Spotting that sloth today certainly was the highlight, and left us with some very sloth-like ...

      ... monkeys like the ones at the park. Anyway, back to the kayaking. The kayaking was was fun and scary. A lot more work and stress for Brian. =) Unfortunately, the kayaks did not come back with back support so it was hard to really be able to kayak more than an hour, specially in those big waves.
      The lowlights:

      • Brian grumbling about places not accepting credit cards and having to get cash ...

      Happy New Year! First things first: I've decided to keep a running tally of the number of cats spotted on this trip. So far, I have seen two. Meanwhile, I have also seen two sloths in the wild (!!). I expect I will see many more cats than sloths moving forward, but no complaints about the cat to sloth ratio right now. More on the sloths later. For now, an update of what we've been up to over the past five days in and around Manuel Antonio National Park. This ...

      Good morning paradise! We start the day in the beautiful national park of Manuel Antonio.

There are many racoons running around and trying to steal food. They even know how to open a bag of crisps! We continue along the beach with an ...
