Explorama Lodges usually takes its guests to Monkey Island. Don't miss it, as it is a lot of fun wandering around with all the monkeys. If they feed them it is really exciting.

Housing about 42 rescued monkeys this is a great facility. These are injured or abused animals and they rehab them before returning them to the wild. Great volunteer staff. Well worth the trip if you are in the area.
