Global Glimpses: Manuel Antonio, Costa Rica


I snapped a shot of this white-faced capuchin monkey during my visit to Manuel Antonio National Park in Costa Rica, in October 2010. This small but beautiful tract of rainforest, mangrove and beach hugs the country’s central Pacific coast.

Known as the park’s mafia, these funky creatures steal food from tourists and jump on children to snatch their snacks. This capuchin had a victim in mind: a toddler happily munching away nearby, not knowing his snack will soon disappear. Murky monkey business.
