“A lot of fun with monkeys”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 25, 2014

This place is easily accessible from Saladan. Unlike some comments with low rating (maybe some kind of brainwash) this is great attraction - especially for children. The grounds monkeys are kept is very spacious. You can have a monkey on your arm, head and take a lot of pictures. The show does not take long time, but after you can play with monkeys. Nice stop on the road to other places.

Close this place down.

Cruelty to the animals. Do not support this venture.

No idea why anyone would want to go to this place.

“Please don't support this terrible cruelty”
1 of 5 stars Reviewed February 27, 2014

Awful Experience. The monkeys are all chained up and not allowed to interact with each other as the chains are short. They cannot act naturally and all look miserable. Such as a shame as there are plenty of humane ways to use monkeys as a tourist attraction, without cruelty. What about a sanctuary or a large enclosure.
Please don't visit this place as it only encourages more places like this to exist.

“DONT SUPPORT THIS!!!!”
1 of 5 stars Reviewed February 26, 2014

These monkeys need to be rescued and set free! Don't support this by paying to watch the show. So sad, and just disgusting.
