La Isla De Los Monos, Iquitos

(280+ reviews on the web)
Wildlife Area
Visit La Isla De Los Monos, a family-run project that promotes the conservation and protection of native monkey species. Since its opening in 1997, the organization has been caring for abandoned or injured monkeys, with the goal of returning them to the wild. Take a boat trip by yourself or as part of a guided tour, explore the island, and meet its resident primates. You'll have the chance to interact with spider monkeys, howlers, tamarins, marmosets, and other native Peruvian species. You can roam the lush green jungle, hang out with the volunteers, and even volunteer yourself at the non-profit organization. Note: do not confuse this island with another of the same name, much closer to the port. Several reports cite poor conditions for the monkeys at the latter.

  • An excellent place where you can interact with different types of monkeys, could see an anaconda and some birds can feed the monkeys.

  • I liked the place very loving monkeys the sad thing is that they become very dependent and already can not return to his natural habitat

  • We went to this island today. We are both very excited. The employees are friendly and the chef tries. You realise that his entire heart is in this project. Definitely worth a visit.
