Monkey Park, Tamarindo
(2.7/5 based on 140+ reviews on the web)
Give something back to Costa Rican wildlife while learning more about endangered animals at Monkey Park, a refuge center for sick and injured wild animals. Monkey species, including spider monkeys, share a home with marmosets, macaws, and ocelots at this facility. What the park lacks in terms of bells and whistles, it compensates for in goodwill, putting all proceeds towards maintenance of this vital wildlife rescue center. While the park is nonprofit and pro animal welfare, the sight of creatures in enclosed cages may still upset some people. Put Monkey Park into our Tamarindo travel itinerary maker and find out what's close by, where to stay, and where to head next.

  • Not easy to find on route 155, this refuge has helped some animals. The place is enchanting as many wild places to the CR. US $ 15

  • Walk through the park takes about 45 minutes. Bring water, a hat, and camera. Overall, great experience!
  • This is a great way to support the wildlife in CR. We were able to see so many different animals and birds and we're happy to donate to their cause. It's great to see Monkey Park helping the animals that are being displaced by development.
  • This is not a good place to take your kids, so boring. Not allowed to interact with the Ananias. I do not recommend
