A very worthwhile experience not to be missed

The area of La Cumbre is nice and worth a visit, but can not be compared to the much more spectacular scenery of the Andes. However, the Caraya Project is something you will not see anywhere else. We have met before in the nature the Howler monkeys as well as the Capuchin monkeys, but here - they are in the wild, living almost as if they are in their natural habitat, but at the same time not afraid of human beings and can easily be observed from a very close range. They are amazing creatures and the local volunteers will furnish you with interesting stories about their lifestyle and each monkey's peculiarity. You will also get to see from very close range the babies coming down form the tree tops clinging to their mothers' backs. A fascinating experience.
If you do not have your own car, just take a taxi (remise) from the center of La Cumbre. We paid 400 pesos return including 1.5 hour waiting (after a bit of a bargaining). Some will try to charge you more but that is the price. The entrance fee for foreigners is 200 peso per person (locals pay 150).

Wonderful way to support conservation

The work they do here rehabilitating monkeys is incredible and walking around the grounds and seeing the Black Howler Monkeys and the cheeky Capuchin is a great way to spend an afternoon.
I would definitely recommend this - it's a nice way to see some of the countryside around Cordoba and lovely to walk around the grounds and watch the monkeys.
The road into the reserve is a bit of an experience - rough dirt - so if you're driving you might want to take that into account.

Amazing Day!

This is a great way to get outside the city of Cordoba, see the countryside and experience an amazing organization working to rescue not just monkeys but other animals - pumas, dogs and a pig! They truly care about the work they are doing, and the ultimate goal is to release the animals they can back in the wild. We got to see some the monkeys being fed - including a momma and baby monkey! It's a beautiful property and worth the visit. They are also looking for volunteers for a week or more to make a big impact.

Really fun day!

Visiting the sanctuary was one of the highlights of my visit to Argentina. I instantly fell in love with the monkeys and the team's work to rehabilitate them, though I think ultimately the pig was my favorite. What can I say, I'm weird! Such a great place, and visits help support their work. I highly recommend stopping by.

Recommended if you're in Cordoba

Proyecto Caraya is doing great work! They are set on a beautiful landscape outside of Cordoba and it's a great day-trip, where you can learn about a great cause. The people are passionate and informative. Highly recommended for something interesting, different, and rewarding when in central Argentina.

Although a little bit remote, definitely worth the trip out of Cordoba.
The sanctuary does such an important job rehabilitating the monkeys - the volunteers are super dedicated and it was a lot of fun seeing the monkeys being fed.
