All of the wildlife I saw at Arenal was at Los Lagos, our hotel, because we didn’t venture far from there. As soon as I got off the bus at Los Lagos, a little girl ran up to me and said, “There are monkeys back there!” and she was pointing violently and telling me of how she just found wild monkeys. A good sign for people like me who obsess over finding wild animals in their natural habitat! Los Lagos had a little miniature nature museum (or whatever you call it) that had everything from a butterfly garden to a crocodile farm. I eventually got word of the hotel toucan that had made its nest in a tree right outside the hotel property. What a beautiful bird!
