Visited here as part of a trip, Yes the beach is lovely but didnt like seeing little monkeys chained to the dogs for the racing. The monkeys roaming around were OK, gave us no trouble.

Well worth a visit but keep your belongings safe. They will jump on you and take anything that is not securely fixed. Dont walk around with a ice cream in your hand if you have any sense.

Foolishly ignored the warnings and decided to go here. Monkeys are more aggressive than I realised and kept blocking our way, one scratched me. The monkey show was very unpleasant- we saw a trainer yank at a dog's ear, and the monkeys seemed scared of...More
