Have a one-of-a-kind adventure in the Dominican Republic with a guided tour of Monkeyland, with time to interact with this beautiful and playful squirrel monkeys, as well as a cultural tour of the Dominican way of life.
Begin the tour with the visit of a typical country house to mingle with Dominicans and learn how to live off the land and their organic products. There, have the opportunity to try roasted coffee and cocoa.
Start the second part of the tour coming to the beautiful botanical garden, where you will learn about native plants and flowers of the island. The next 45 minutes will be occupied for a guided tour that allows you to interact in close proximity to the beautiful and friendly squirrel monkeys at Monkeyland.
These charming and intelligent monkeys have been formed by a Canadian couple with over 35 years of experience working with animals, including over 12 years at the Toronto Zoo to teaching monkeys to trust and enjoy the company of humans. This tour is based on 5 acres of a beautiful piece of land that monkeys have made their home.
The monkeys are completely accustomed to human contact. They come down from the trees to sit on your shoulder and eat from your hands. Beware …. they love all things bright and interesting! Little monkeys love to pose for the cameras and probably will sit, and if allowed, see themselves in your camera. Adorable! Come share this unforgettable experience!
