From Bayahibe: Half Day Monkeyland Safari

1. From Bayahibe: Half Day Monkeyland Safari

After being picked up from your accommodation in Bayahibe, set off on your safari adventure. Begin the tour with the visit to a typical country house where you can 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. Then, head over to the beautiful botanical garden, where you will learn about native plants and flowers of the island. For the next 45 minutes, enjoy a guided tour that allows you to interact in close proximity with the beautiful and friendly squirrel monkeys at Monkeyland. These charming and intelligent monkeys have been looked after by a Canadian couple with 35 years of experience working with animals, including 12 years at the Toronto Zoo teaching monkeys to trust and enjoy the company of humans. During the tour, explore 5 acres of a beautiful piece of land that the 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 monkeys 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 an unforgettable experience!

What people are saying about Bayahibe

Very nice experience. We not only saw and fed the monkies, as we learned a lot about coffee, coconut oil and cocoa. The views on the way to the monkey land os very beautiful? You can see some of the Dominican life, you can see nature, you can see beauty. U just have to be open for it and embrace it! Our guide (Junior) and driver (Manuel) were equally wonderful. Very kind, funny and helpful. They definitely love their job! Thank you for this experience!

The bus arrived 25 minutes late. We asked for a French guide, we got an English guide. We have seen more cocoa, coffee and coconut than monkeys. Lockers for bags and personal belongings are chargeable ($ 10) !!!! The only positive point is that I saw monkeys
