  • This is truly a refuge - it is all about education and a donation to their cause - which is fine, but we were expecting to see more animals. I felt bad for people with young kids as it was a long talk...  more »
  • The price is exorbitant compared to providing $ 50 per person to see pictures of monkeys in the 1980s and a promotional film in the living room surrounded by cage empty filled with stuffed animals.

Hoping that the funds will go to monkeys Pura vida

  • Highly recommend a visit to see how they are helping the monkeys who are injured heal and be reintroduced into their natural habitat.
