Saw the sun set from this beautiful mystical spot. The monkeys were absolutely adorable. The nature sounds out of a National Geographic documentary. Don't miss it!

So cool to see the monkeys swinging around right above you. They get so close (not quite close enough to touch) but we were shocked at how many monkeys were out playing. The zipline is also a solid one.

We saw many spider and howler monkeys in actions when we showed in early morning. The short zip lining site reached by a brief canoe ride is fun.
