After visiting Coba, we turned our car to Punta Laguna where there’s a quite and beautiful lagoon and lush jungle with Spider monkeys are.  Only 10 kms away from Coba, this beautiful and humble Lagoon offers you exotic plants, toucans, many different gorgeous mariposas (butterflies!), thousands of water lilies and even crocodiles!!!

But once we were stopped by scene of spider monkeys flying all around us, we couldn’t care less about bug bites!

The spider monkey is considered a primitive new world monkey. They are called spider monkeys because they look like spiders when they are suspended by their tails. Spider monkeys are usually all black, but some have flesh coloured rings around their eyes and white chin whiskers.  Hair generally coarse and stringy. Lacks underfur. These monkeys depend highly on their keen binocular vision. They have slender bodies and limbs with long narrow hands.

We only had tasted what it would be like to be in the middle of the jungle this time. But I’m determined to go back and really explore. Gael could not take his eyes and ears off from the monkeys and all those sounds the nature makes. How wonderful it is to have a chance to be the little part of the nature!  Now that’s priceless.
