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.

    You can see that the monkeys are conditioned humans provide food, when they are called (several times a day) they are grouped around the visitors to access food. The experience lasts approximately 5 minutes with monkeys.
