4.3/5 based on 190+ 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.

  • Monkeys by thousands, all very friendly and nothing elusive. Well organized. Excellent opportunity for photographs. Hundreds of friendly monkeys, not aggressive, but at time overwhelming. Great photos.

  • Very nice for a quick visit. Monkeys are jumping on and of shoulders, head ... Local tourist shop also nice and cheap 
  • 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
