Isla de Los Micos, Leticia
(4.3/5 based on 200+ 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.

  • Very good experience, the guidelines are very clear that you can and that you can do, besides the monkeys are very confianzudos jejeje, overlooking the river is spectacular

  • Found me it spectacular, site, time of visit, almost always is short with companies that provide the service. to reach the place, you can take a tourist plan in the city of Leticia, capital of the Amazon, not to be missed one the experience of going to the border of Peru, Colombia and Brazil by boat, from there will take you to Puerto Nariño, a site where its inhabitants are gentle and calm, there are no trucks and the food they sell is very good for its Colombo-peruano - Brazilian air. Puerto Nariño will take you to see dolphins throughout the River, especially in the lago Tarapoto where each view of a fin will make you scream with excitement. Finally, come to the island of monkeys, very good experience, although it generates a bit of fear when the monkeys start skip above all, take care of your objects since the monkeys are very curious.

  • 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.

  • Tourist attractive place mainly by contact with the monkeys

  • 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
