Boy Butter World Tour 2011 - Playa de Costa Rica

Hola mis amigos, estoy en Costa Rica a lado de la playa del Manuel Antonio i es un paraíso. 
Hello my friends, I am in Costa Rica next to the beach of Manuel Antonio and it is paradise.

Though it is the smallest national park in Costa Rica, Manuel Antonio is a gorgeous lush tropical forest filled with butterflies, toucans, and howler monkeys. This park is just south of Quepos on the Pacific Coast, 132 km from San José. It's popularity may be due to it's white sand beaches backed by an evergreen forest that grows right up to the high tide line. The principal habitants are primary forest, secondary forest, mangrove swamps, lagoons and beach vegetation. There is quite a varied fauna with 109 species of mammals and 184 of birds. The park includes 12 little isles just off the coast; these are a number of dolphins and, at times, migrating whales can be observed. 

Take a look at some of my photos and a cool video.

That plane looks teeny-tiny! How did you fit? Glad you're having fun. FYI - the old fashioned pictures are becoming annoying.
