Monkeys in Costa Rica

There are two different types of monkeys that you will see in the Montezuma area. There are white faced monkeys (or white throated capuchin), which are very small and active animals.They were given this name because of the white fur they have around their face and shoulders. white faced monkey in costa ricaIMG_0248

There are also Howler monkeys. The Howler monkey has been given this name because of the loud and deep howl that they make. The Howler monkey has all very dark fur and face. Keep a look out for both types of monkeys while here at Ylang Ylang! The white faced monkeys are often easier to spot, but you will surely hear the Howlers at some point during your stay!
