Monkey See

Tikal Spider Monkey

Mayan ruins are the main draw at Tikal in northeastern Guatemala, but we were equally interested in the other chief attraction: monkeys. Before we had even left the grounds of our hotel we crossed paths with a group of spider monkeys, including this little guy, who energetically entertained us by swinging from his tail and other antics—our first-ever sighting of primates in the wild.
