Discover the White-Faced Capuchin Monkeys of Costa Rica

Capuchin monkey resting on a tree
Costa Rica is a monkey haven, home to four species: howler, white-faced capuchin, squirrel, and spider. From Tortuguero’s lowland jungles to Monteverde’s misty mountains, encounters are certain for both locals and visitors. In wildlife hotspots like Corcovado National Park, lucky travelers might even glimpse all four! Among them, the adaptable capuchin reigns supreme. With their playful antics, they bring the jungles of Central and South America to life, adding a touch of adventure to your Costa Rican experience. They're a famous sight for a reason!
You won't miss them, as they live in groups of 5 to 30 monkeys, swinging and leaping through trees with incredible agility.
