      ... an island but a natural land bridge formed over time by the accumulation of sand, and it is now connected to the mainland - a phenomenom called "tombolo". This mirador only offers views out to sea and down on the cliffs below, after walking on the forested trail. Manuel Antonio National Park is well developed for the high volume of visitors, with easy trails (I wore thongs the whole day), paths and stairs in place, toilet and shower facilities, bins, picnic tables, ...

      On the way back we heard a sound that was familiar..........the rapping of a woodpecker. Not just any woodpecker but a linneated woodpecker.

      through the ...

      ... I've got a much better understanding of the layout of the resort, and also, I saw a group of 5 or so Capuchin monkeys! I was as close to them as I've been to any monkeys so far this trip, and I was able to see that one had a baby on its back. I don't know if the video I uploaded here from my iPhone will show the baby well or not.
