My boyfriend and I booked and appointment for a tour of the Money Sanctuary on a recent trip to Tulum. it is located on the road to Coba, just follow the directions provided on their website and you can't miss it! We were greeted by Richard, the Owner and were given a great tour of this exciting place, that was astoundingly gorgeous and special. On the property you will see Many animals including monkeys that have been rescued and are thriving on this preserve, including Horses, a Donkey, Deer, Crocodiles, and hundreds of birds! The Spider Monkeys were all over the property some free in designated monkey zones and some in large cages on the grounds. They were all so carefully cared for and soo Sweet! We even got to interact and feed one of the monkeys which was awesome!
John who runs the tours and works with Richard on developing the property came and met us and led us through the rest of the grounds leading up to the fantastic Cenotes. The whole time John and Richard gave us such detailed and great information about each of the animals and plant life that are on the reserve, it was clear that it is a very personal project for them and they truly care about creating a sustainable ecosystem. The Cenotes were absolutely stunning. They are natural underground freshwater caves created over thousands of years, We had the opportunity to jump into one and swim underground to another opening a few yards away, an experience you wont find anywhere else! it was soo exhilerating and cool!
My Boyfriend and I are city people and don't normally get into nature so much, but the environment there was so gorgeous, and the animals clearly thriving, and we were drawn in!
It was an unforgettable experience that we will never forget. I'd recommend it to people of all ages as a beautiful and fun place to visit.. It is completely safe and family friendly and also super fun and romantic for couples. It was by far the highlight of our trip to Tulum!
