Es una isla localizada en el Río Amazonas... Verdaderamente una maravilla. Para acceder tienes que ir en un tour como fui yo porque es lo más factible. Fue parte de un tour full day que contratamos, si más no recuerdo, costó alrededor de 70-80 soles incluido el almuerzo y la movilidad desde tu hotel. Te llevan en una lancha -o... More

This experience was so worth it for us. Although we found there to be a lot of people around it was still really neat to do. Make sure you come with either some $$ or food to give to the monkeys. They are everywhere though so generally that's not a problem. Really cool thing to do to get some fantastic... More

I had great fun interacting with the animals here. The cappuccino monkeys were sweet as they were like babies wanting a hug or to be hugged. Other species were great as well like tge South American Racoon, Toucan, Spider Monkey, parrots, small anaconda & one pre-historic looking turtle. My favorite was the Sloth. I was concerned for it's well being... More

The monkeys come right up to you, and if you are really lucky they will curl right up in your lap. I made friends with the howler monkey while there... an amazing experience and kudos to all of the volunteers

It was great to get close to the rescued primates and to even interact with some animals that the guides were holding. It was fun to watch them and even interact with some of the monkeys that were once kept as pets and were friendly. Feel good helping support their efforts at the same time you have fun interacting with... More

It was fantastic seeing these monkeys up close. Although you probably shouldn't try to touch them they do come right up alongside you. The people that run this operation are doing a great job to help rescue these animals.
