This was quite possibly my favorite experience in Nosara. The tour starts with some information about the land, the flora and fauna and how the sanctuary was started and while you may be impatient to get to the monkeys, this part of the tour is interesting and important. Steve and Vicki are two people who saw something terrible happening - monkeys getting electrocuted by uncovered electrical wires in the jungle - and instead of saying "This is terrible, someone should do something about it" they said "This is terrible, let's do something about it" and do something they did. It's clear that this work is a labor of love but man, is it labor. It's just the two of them, one or two staff and a few volunteers caring for all of these monkeys and the 50 acres of land the sancturary sits on. Vicki has to feed the babies by hand every few hours, every day and night and when we were there she was talking to us while feeding one and then another. I feel cannot do this experience justice and would encourage anyone and everyone to go. The $65 for the tour goes to the expenses of running the sanctuary, in fact Vicki was taking the money from our tour and going to the hardware store right after we left, talk about grassroots! If you can, give them a little more, they are living very modestly up there in the jungle, almost everything goes to the monkeys. Go, go, go!!!!!!!!!!!!!
