The Amazon Basin Sights

Updated 11/22/2012

Fodor's Review

An easy reserve to visit—and a popular spot for explorers of all ages—Isla de los Monos is Peru's "Monkey Island." The 250-hectare (618-acre) island is a private reserve where monkeys that were once held in captivity, or were confiscated from animal traffickers, now live in a natural environment. It's home to eight monkey species, as well as sloths, parrots, macaws and other wildlife. Since most of the animals are former pets, you can get very close to them; maybe

closer than you want. It's best to visit the island on a tour from Iquitos of the nearby Ceiba Tops hotel.
