... monkeys, which we had such a fun time watching! They jump and swing from tree to tree with such ease and agility and it's so entertaining to watch them do so. I honestly could have watched these little guys all day. I especially loved seeing the babies being held by their moms while the moms jumped and swung. The squirrel monkeys definitely had the largest audience around them.

Today was a lazy day. We put on our bathing suits and went aft to the pool, laid in the sun for a little bit, did water aerobics in the salt water pool all by myself, and after showering we took a short nap. We were still in port so took a tender over to Quepos, a sleepy little town with not much to see or do. We found an internet cafe at which wifi was free if be ...
