We started our journey at Monkeyland and the team there was really knowledgeable about the moneys and took clear precautions to ensure we didn’t endanger them in any way.
We all entered through a restricted area after a hand and shoe sanitation station. Once inside the 35+ monkeys were eager to come get food form us. The team lined us up and gave us fruit in a bowl to hold out for them. Lots of monkeys came running and crawled all over you. Great photo opportunity. We proceeded to another spot and feed them again. It was a blast. My skepticism before was totally removed. The team there made it a great experience.

Note: avoid sunblock, bug spray, lotions, etc. They can all harm te monkeys.

We visited the squirrel monkeys in June as a package deal with zip lining. It was so enjoyable to visit the monkey's and Cristopher provided great educational information about them. I recommend having the delicious lunch provided with the package.

Beginning with the drive there through some Dominican communities, it was pretty awesome to see the Dominican lifestyle in the towns outside the resort! Then the coffee and cocoa they prepared right in front of us was so yummy. The monkeys were amazing..it was great to have an up close and personal experience with such adorable, gentle animals. And of course, our tour guide PJ and our driver Feliz were the icing on top. PJ was super entertaining and Feliz made sure to get us there and back safely and on time!
