Isla de Los Micos, Leticia

(4.3/5 based on 240+ reviews on the web)
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 is a wonderful place, monkeys (female species) that can be uploaded at any time to your body, are quite playful and curious are with what one wears. Important do not wear sunglasses or accessories since they can take these elements, nor you should apply sunscreen or insect repellent since doing so the monkeys will not be uploaded. The entrance has a cost of 30 thousand pesos if one does not go on tour, there you can also find handicrafts and traditional medicine of the Amazon

  • An experience unique to have contact with the nature. Arriving at the island has contact with Indians, their crafts, and the best, the monkeys, which literally fall on top of one from the trees and make you a great massage, hair and body. The best and funniest moment.

  • Here is handled several troops of small monkeys who fed bananas provided by staff of the island. The little monkeys you climb up and eat from your hand. There are drinks and crafts tent. A short ride along a path is. Use repellent. An insect bit me and was a little Indian girl who realized and device bug of my. Great experience. I highly recommend it.

  • I though still won't have no desire to moisture and the thousands of bugs. Go to the island requires many repellents and vaccines. I put only 2 stars that don't think it me is so beautiful

  • This place, away from any city, is a small island in the middle of the river Amazon, which crosses the Colombian side, there really thousands of monkeys that will jump to your shoulders and heads if you offer them any food, it is a beautiful experience
