Costa Rica: Part 5

The rest of our trip was mostly spent relaxing at the beach or by the pool, but we did do a couple more things nearby our resort that I want to share.

We had heard about a locally owned bar down the beach where you could always see monkeys. So Wednesday evening, in an effort to see more monkeys, we decided to walk down the beach to Monkys Bar. 

Before we even got there, we saw this adorable guy!

Once at the bar, we quickly realized there were no available tables for us. Not to worry though, they built one for us out of beer crates! Ha! Needless to say, it wasn't the most comfortable, so we didn't linger very long. Ha.

After drinking our drinks, we walked back to our hotel, but took the trail instead of the beach to try to see more monkeys. Lucky for us we saw several Howler Monkeys with their babies!! :-)

Thursday, we decided to take a ride over to Coco Beach. It was about a 20 minute or so drive. This was a little beach town that had a lot of souvenir shops and little restaurants. We wanted to get the kids and our parents some souvenirs and we had heard this was the place to go for that. So we talked to someone at the front desk who called a private taxi for us and we spent a couple hours at Coco Beach. We did some shopping and had a drink at a little bar on the beach.

Thursday was our last full day in Costa Rica. So that evening, we got a little more dressed up and had a nice, fancy dinner at one of the hotel restaurants as opposed to eating the normal buffet. We had a wonderful dinner and then caught the end of the show that night.

The next morning, we got up, had breakfast and then headed to the airport. We had a wonderful time, but we were happy to be going home to see our babies!
