White Faced Monkeys in Tortuguero
The capuchin or white face monkeys are one of the four species that exist in Costa Rica. In Tortuguero you can see three species, the howler monkey, the white face or capuchin monkey and the spider monkey. The white-faced monkey is perhaps the most active and daring, since they are usually not very afraid and defend their territory with screams and sometimes throwing small branches from the trees of the jungle. They feed on anything they find, so they are omnivorous.
