Costa Rica Picture of the Day – Each day the Costa Rican Times will be including a picture from around Costa Rica to see the natural beauty and amazing things that we get to see each day in the land of the Pura Vida.
There is a lot of monkeying around going on in Costa Rica. One of the monkeys most seen in Costa Rica is the white-faced Capuchin monkey.
Capuchin monkeys, also called white-faced monkeys, call the wet lowland forests on Caribbean coast of Costa Rica and Panama and deciduous dry forest on the Pacific coast home.
These monkeys have a distinct appearance that differs from other Central American primates: The monkeys have a black body with a white upper chest and shoulders, and a white face with a black cap on top of their head.
They can be seen on my of the adventures you will be taking on a vacation to Costa Rica, just be careful to not leave your picnic lunch unwatched; it is not uncommon for these little scavengers to come down from the trees and help themselves.
