Island Wildlife Area
Travel to the heart of Amazon rainforest and observe various species of monkey at Isla de Los Micos. More than 5,000 monkeys from four species inhabit the forested area, alongside a number of birds and reptiles. In the 1960s, Mike Tsakilys created the 450 hectare (1111 acre) nature reserve for the protection and proliferation of our primate cousins. Activities within the reserve don’t simply revolve around guided tours of the monkeys' habitats; you can satisfy your urge for adventure by going canopy and tree climbing. See Isla de Los Micos and all Leticia has to offer by arranging your trip with our Leticia vacation builder.

  • It will also be a tourist stop but seeing all these little monkeys freely grab shoulders and head is a unique experience for anyone who loves animals. We arrived through a tour. I'd recommend it. Remember not to put sunscreen or insect repellent x because you put at risk these wonderful animals. For the rest enjoy their company: are curious and simparicissime. I would have been all day with them!

  • In the midst of the majestic forest and next to the huge Amazon River, a landscape dominated by the friendly monkeys is willing to cater to tourists. The monkeys climb with total humility about visitors in Exchange for banana pieces. A beautiful and unforgettable experience. The site offers sale of crafts typical of the region and health services. In any travel agency of Leticia is available a Tour to this island more elsewhere for approximately 130 thousand Colombian pesos.
