Interact and feed lovable squirrel monkeys at Monkeyland, Punta Cana on a 5-hour safari tour. Enjoy spectacular views of the surrounding countryside, wander among tropical flowers in the botanical garden, and taste fresh organic coffee and fruits.
What to Expect
Enjoy a half-day safari of Punta Cana, with a visit to the Monkey Land safari park to meet and feed local squirrel monkeys.
Following a transfer from your hotel, learn about the native plants of the Dominican Republic at the botanical gardens. During a 45-minute guided tour, get up-close-and-personal with the friendly squirrel monkeys. These intelligent animals have been trained by a Canadian couple boasting 35 years experience working with animals, including 12 years at Toronto Zoo teaching monkeys to trust the company of humans.
Be amazed as they climb down from the trees to sit on your shoulder and eat from your hand. Beware! They love anything shiny and interesting. Laugh as they pose for photo shoots, and - if allowed - look at the results on your camera!
Continue through the Eastern mountain range to the colorful villages of the island, where you will visit a typical home to sample fresh, organic coffee, cacao and tropical fruits. End with a browse through the Monkey Land gift store to find some unique monkey related gifts.
