Adult male white-nosed coatis are sometimes active at night, but coatis are primarily diurnal. The white-nosed coati is more active by day than by night, but in Costa Rica is mostly diurnal.

Days are spent mostly on the ground foraging, while nights are spent in treetops, sheltered from most predation.
