Manuel Antonio Park    
Back on the coast. Quiet beaches in Manuel Antonio National Park where we spent an afternoon.
Sunbathers share the beach with iguanas.
We must have missed the rangerís announcement of the park closing and stayed almost until sunset. However the tide had come right up by then and we had to wade through a deep estuary to get out.
We had dinner in a restaurant in a old cargo plane.  It had been purchased by counter-revolutionary guerrilla fighters opposed to the Nicaraguan Sandanista Government.  This was allegedly done with the help of the CIA and funded by US arms sales to Iran (know as the Iran Contra Affair).
These guys are big - probably at least 3m in length.
