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.

  • Since that get to the place is a spectacular experience (if you like animals), you have the opportunity to see a lot of monkeys and feed them, in addition to a tour of the forest. If you are leticia definitely you should go to the island of monkeys, you'll end up with dirty clothes, but nothing compared to the experience.

  • Really great to those monkeys run over you, so cute! Really nice experience to equally to dock there. Visit Sun lasts 15 minutes and you pay 30,000 peso per person.

  • Nothing like feeling that nature comes at you in very small and playful portions... Definitely one of the best places. Keep in mind not to take or repellent or blocker (no chemical agent, if possible) on the skin to not abuse the ecosystem.

  • 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
