The Amazon Basin Sights

La Isla de los Monos

  • Nature Preserve/Wildlife Refuge

Updated 09/22/2014

Fodor's Review

An easy reserve to visit—and a popular spot for explorers of all ages—the Isla de los Monos (Monkey Island) is home to more than 40 monkeys of eight species. 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. In addition to the monkeys, there are sloths, parrots, macaws and a small botanical garden. Since most of the animals are former

pets, you can get very close to them; maybe closer than you want.
