A Visitor

A challenge with ecotourism, not just in Costa Rica, is finding the balance between observing wildlife and engaging with wildlife. You can tell this guy has been fed by visitors before (a big no-no) because he came right up to our car. We desperately wanted to feed him but  our guide, Maria, insisted we not. Her commitment to not interfering with animals and nature is another example of how protective Ricans are of their country.
