Isla de Los Micos, Leticia

Must see · Island · Nature / Park
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.

  • Monkeys are not shy. They will jump all over you if you have a banana in your hand. Awesome experience. Bring extra clothes.  more »
  • It's rather a short stop, there are just one species of monkeys you can see. They start jumping between people, using them as trees in search for fruits. Be careful not to tray and grab one because they can bite and even steal some of your belongings
  • Simply a magical experience
  • Beautiful place, lovely animals!
  • Una isla muy retirada de Leticia, donde alimentando a los Micos llegan todos a comer Bananos, además se encuentran artesanías de la región e indígenas Ticunas.
  • Un lugar hermoso para visitar, una de las mejores experiencias :) 🙊
