The folks at Curu would like to see themselves as a national park. They put up the same yellow and brown signs as the other parks in Costa Rica. They have nice trails. They have all the signs that the parks have that warn you to "leave only your footprints" and "don't feed the animals."
But the first clue something was odd was that they were openly feeding the monkeys dozens of bananas. That was right next to a sign saying not to feed the monkeys!
We were told this is a farm applying to be a national park so they can get tax benefits, but that's where it ends.
On the plus side, we did see three scarlot McCaw's over head. That's unforgettable.
I just hope they start playing by the same rules that are required of guests, because the monkeys were fighting with each other and scaring people - unlike anything I've seen in the other parks in CR I've visited over the years.
