Nov 2021 • Couples
Extremely fun experience, the little monkeys are so sweet and light (they will jump all over you and it really is overwhelmingly heart warming!), but we also learned some very interesting things about traditional coffee and cocoa making process. Carlos Manuel was an amazing guide, the entire team was a pleasure to be around. The story telling, the demonstrations, the whole interaction was truly perfect. We plan to come again next time :) Thank you, Runners Adventures, all your trips are 10*!

Wow, what a great day.
Time to monkeyland was around 40 min from riu bambu. $5 for a locker or free in the communal locker. Can't take anything into the monkeys apart from phone, hat an glasses. Don't wear jewellery.
Got to feed them and take as many pictures as you wanted. Spent around 45 minutes with them.
After that, we walked to a Dominican house and then down to the coffee and chocolate part. It was interesting and food to see how it was made.
Following that we got to taste the coffee, hot chocolate and mamajuanna.

We bought some hot chocolate coaco and mamajuanna.
The whole trip was good, our guide Amaro and driver Millo were both very good and knowledgeable.

Great half-day trip to the monkeys
We had a great time at Monkeyland. The pickup at the hotel went well. The driver Mello drove us safely to the location while Amado was providing interesting insights on what we saw left and right. The monkeys were very enjoyable, we had lots of fun. Later on, Perry guided us to the cacao, showed us an old house and how to make cacao. It was a journey worthwhile.

Ruddy was an amazing tour guide. Brian was a great driver and together they made a fantastic team! Ruddy was a wealth of knowledge and taught us so much more than we ever expected to learn about the Dominican culture. The cocoa and coffee process was amazing as well. The best part was the interaction my kids and I had with the squirrel monkeys in Monkeyland. It was well worth the trip and we’d go again in a minute!!! 👏🏻👏🏻👏🏻

Ruddy was an amazing guide! Ramond and Ruddy make a great team. My children and I loved Ruddy’s knowledge and he was so attentive and funny! We learned so much about the coffee and chocolate process. The absolute best part of the day was the monkeys! So gentle and docile. A hands on experience that my kids and I will remember forever! 100% recommend!

Super-duper great experience!
Best choice possible, you absolutely have to book this trip! Carlos Manuel was the best guide ever, everyone and everything was lovely! You'll get to taste some real coffee, hot cocoa and cinnamon - these are tastes that you simply cannot ever find in a store. Of course, the little monkeys are a treat, you can't get enough of them :) And that's why we are definitely going to book this trip again! Oh, and this is a nice, professional team, people you'll really enjoy being around, not the kind of rip-off you can get on the beach or even from the hotels. Tripadvisor is your best friend in DR - trust us, because we've tried everything and 5* on Tripadvisors really means 5*! THANK YOU, CARLOS MANUEL, FOR MAKING A GREAT EXPERIENCE EVEN BETTER! 🤗
