Situated in Portegolpe, a 20-minute drive from Tamarindo, the Monkey Park is both a tourist attraction and a shelter for monkeys and other endangered species. Volunteers and staff help raise orphaned and injured monkeys and other local wildlife in a rich habitat where visitors can observe howler monkeys swinging through the trees and thriving in their new environment. Stroll along the park's nature trails or check out the butterfly garden when you're not hanging with the monkeys in the wildlife refuge. Monkey Park, Portegolpe, Guanacaste. Mon.-Sun. 8 a.m. to 5 p.m. (2653-8032) $15 Guided Tour.
