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.

  • The little monkeys live on an island totally in their natural habitat. Tourists come and meet them and can feed them a banana. Sure it is tourism but it is better than any zoo.  more »
  • Go to island monkeys is a very good plan. The truth the miquitos are very cute and one not feel scare when mounted or jump, that if caught one off guard. We were a group of 4 and we arrived first, which made for 5-10 minutes we had the monkeys just for us, then came a group of 15 people and there if things change. Monkeys usually become popo in one, so it is best to carry a spare shirt.
