  • This was the excursion I chose to do while on a cruise. I was a bit hesitant because the excursion rating on the cruise line page was not very good. I am glad that I chose to ignore those reviews, and take the chance. I had a great time! We were taken via a bus to the park, and then we met our guide that took us on a guided tour. The tour was really interesting, and while on the tour you get a chance to have a Macaw and Monkeys sit on your shoulder. They take your photograph with both, which you can buy later on a CD Rom for a very reasonable price. After the tour you are welcome to explore on your own and take a bus back at your own leisure. There is a lot to do after the walking tour. They have a wonderful pool, a beach, and a zip line. I would highly recommend this to anyone that is looking for an interesting excursion while on a cruise. Hint: The Pirates bridge is totally awesome! Take a towel and swimsuit so you can enjoy the pool and the beach. Bring some cash to buy the CD Rom that includes all of the photos taken of you while on your tour.
  • This was one of the highlights of our cruise! We went on a tour of this park and then to Tabyana Beach. Our tour guide was great and gave us a lot of detailed information about the park and the island itself. We got to hold a large bird (Macaw?) and several Capuchin monkeys! The monkeys were amazing! They had so much character and were so much fun to hold and be around! The rest of the park was very pretty and well kept! I loved this park!!
  • Seeing the monkeys in Gumbalimba was the real treat for me, but the parrots and all of the natural beauty is nothing to ignore. They even have a beach! A day trip to Gumbalimba is something that you should consider.
  • Great experience. You get hands on with different animals. The monkeys were the cutest things ever!
  • Beautiful place. Lovely scenery. Staff is very friendly
