Monkey Park, Tamarindo

3.3
#16 of 36 in Wildlife in Tamarindo
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. A visit to Monkey Park represents just the start of the adventure when you use our Tamarindo trip itinerary maker to plot your vacation.
