I was to Costa Rica two years ago any you must be aware that a good deal of your shots will be from a shaky boat of monkeys and birds far away. It?s not to easy carrying around a monopod or tripod or even a big lens. The most convenient setup I saw on that trip (not me) was with a EF70-300 DO IS USM on a crop camera, relatively small and light with good range. It?s not a great lens but very effective in the right hands.
