This picture was captured in the PN. Corcobado (on the southern Osa peninsula), where you are walking inside the really jungle and adventure is a reality. You are between the animals and you can find lots of them just if you listen the jungle.
It’s a mix of hard and great experience. Great because you are crossing really a jungle, (it’s not a park, the animals are free), and you can see a lot of animals in his ambience and wonderful panoramas of untouched beaches. Hard, because you have to walk 20 kms. for arrive to the refuge for sleep and the next day return for the same 20 kms. And you have to scrimmage sometimes with tide, in some places you can lost the way and you have to cross one river where the water exceed your waist and can have crocodiles (So we've read on the Lonely planet the next day). But in spite of everything, this is one of our best experiences of our lives. The sacrifice is worth the trouble
PS. Inside the forest it was very dark, and I had to use ISO-800, so I removed the noise with software for make more pleasant the picture.

You have a cute friend Xevi!
I love his eyes and the way he is looking at the camera. Good choic to frame the little guy with all the vegetation around him. DOF, color and light are excellent!

Great picture and I agree with bibiweb - nice colours and DOF.
It's great that you caught this little guy coz I thought monkies like to jump around the place!
The plants around him make an unusual framing which is nice!

Very nice portrait of this little monkey! I appreciate that animals are very hard to photograph, did you spend a long time to get this shot?

Your friend has a cute look on her (his?) face. This is well composed and good use of exposure. Well done!
