... some white faced and howler monkey's hiding out in the trees. Arturo pulled the boat right up to the shore and let some of us get out of the boat to get a closer look at the monkey's and to take pictures. Walter was able to mimic the howler monkey's very well and started calling out to them. Apparently grand daddy howler wasn't having it and starting to howl back really loud and started towards us. Walter started running back to the boat and we all did the ...

Costa Rica is brilliant. We highly recommend it and will possibly return in future. Pura Vida as the locals ...
... of life and all that but still made me really sad to see it, I love those things! Then we saw a lot of sharks and on the way back a spotted eagle ray right next to us eating. I was like ooh pretty and then ooh **** mapping haha. So yeah we had two awesome dives really. Back on the boat we found out one of us would be helping out on the IE boat later as Julian had walked out again. Zack was meant to be doing it and went off to do so when Laura told Barbara that Jay, a guy finishing ...
