Observe squirrel monkeys on this trip to Monkeyland, deep in the Dominican Republic's jungle. Ride a safari truck on this 5-hour tour through local coffee and cacao plantations, then visit the monkey sanctuary and and its botanical gardens. You'll learn about the local farmers' organic farming methods, taste freshly picked tropical fruit, and see and feed 20 monkeys that have been raised to be comfortable around people. Round-trip transportation from Bavaro and Punta Cana hotels is included.

What to Expect

A brightly painted safari vehicle will pick you up in the early morning at your Bavaro or Punta Cana hotel. Get to know your local guide on the way to a typical Dominican country plantation. 

Meet the local famers and hear about their organic farming methods, used to cultivate cinnamon, cacao, coffee and vanilla. Taste tropical fruit plucked freshly from the tree, and take advantage of the opportunity to purchase some of these straight-from-the-source products to take home. 

Climb back in your jeep and ascend a mountain road deep into the jungle. Arrive at Monkeyland, a 5-acre (2-hectare) squirrel monkey habitat managed by a dedicated couple. Follow your guide on a 45-minute tour of the sanctuary, where you'll have the chance to watch and feed the monkeys. Visit the botanical garden, featuring native trees, plants and flowers, before boarding your jeep for transport back to your hotel at the end of your 5-hour tour.

We had a wonderful time at Monkeyland. They are very concerned with the wellbeing of the monkeys and the visitors. Unlike any other experience we have had.

Seems like the monkeys could carry diseases that you don't want your baby catching.
