In the rain a giant branch had used a family of spider monkeys downhill slide, all in a row. A pig family sought shelter in the jungle.  A neverending caravan of leaf-cutting ants showed us the way to their underground hideaway, all with a green Zweig ' under the arm '.

Everything is natural, no concrete, no metal and above all no commerce in the larger and crowded Manuel Antonio or in other smaller plants, which may only provide natural protection and love for animals, to their coffers fill.
