Covid-19 Update

Visit the coconut house or “Casa del Coco” to learn how coconut oil is produced and taste exotic Caribbean fruits, roasted coffee, and cacao. Interact in close proximity with friendly squirrel monkeys for the next 45 minutes. These charming and intelligent monkeys have been trained by a Canadian couple with over 35 years of experience working with animals, including 12 years at the Toronto Zoo teaching monkeys how to interact with humans. The tour is based on 5 acres of beautiful land that monkeys have made their home. They will descend from the trees to sit on your shoulder and eat from your hands. They also love to pose for the cameras, especially for selfies.

What an informative and fun excursion! Rudy was our tour guide and our travel to and from the hotel was (Sexy Pappi) Chris whom was very funny and informative as well! I really appreciated the love and gentleness the guides had and provided the squirrel monkeys! I really developed and great application for the DR and their resources! The directions provided for pick up could’ve been more precise abba accurate! I waited for an hour at one location and on chatting with an agent through the app, I was informed to wait elsewhere which was completely wrong as he provided me correspondence that I assumed was supposed to be emailed to me, that I never received, stated to wait elsewhere at another location at a different time.

- Benjamin and Rafael provided such an amazing experience. Benjamin was so energetic, knowledgeable, and fun throughout our ride. Rafael was a great driver, and had great energy as well. I loved interacting with the monkeys and learning about them. Who knew monkeys have to eat 8x a day? Wow! I thought I had a heavy appetite-lol! This was an incredible time!
