Yesterday we left Atenas for our four hour drive to Playa Guiones in the province of Guanacaste. It is a surf town along the Pacific Coast. We arrived mid afternoon to our home there. This area is very humid, lush and very warm.
This morning we were woken early to the sounds of howler monkeys in the trees not far from our house. After breakfast we watched a large troop of howler monkeys go thru the trees beside our house. They were all sizes and we could easily see them eating things in the trees. Very exciting. I also saw an iguana on our roof looking down on us. He looked very regal up there peering down on us. Later as we were in the pool the howler monkeys went by again and entertained us. From the pool we also watched a 3 foot bright green iguana climb a tree by us. Lots of lizards and iguanas around here.
During the day we also visted two lovely beaches. Playa Pelada was lovely with nice scenery. Playa Guiones had huge waves and many surfers.
