Monkeyland was educational!

The monkeys are very animated and it was crazy how quickly they were on each person when they received the pan of food. The babies clung to their mother’s body as she traveled wherever the group of people went. The bus ride to the mountains gave us a glimpse of life in the Dominican Republic.

Leo and Pima were our driver and guide and they were amazing. We enjoyed learning some of the culture and the coffee and cocoa plantation presentation was great. The monkeys were our favorite, they were amazing and so much fun, they interacted with everybody, it is a MUST DO FOR SURE.

This trip was amazing. Our tour guide, Carlos, was very knowledgeable and informative about the town, La Ceiba, we went through to get to monkeys. He showed us typical Dominican homes, explained about the different types of trees and the fruits that grew there. He also showed us a tree full of egrets which had a spectacular view. Once we got to the location, we toured the plantation. The presentation on coffee and chocolate were very informative. The sample chocolate with cinnamon was delicious! The squirrel monkeys were adorable! The monkeys were very comfortable with humans and climbed all over us. We were able to feed them and hold them a few times. Our driver, Adolfo, was great. He got us to and from monkey land safely. I would definitely recommend this tour and if you are fortunate enough to get Carlos and Adolfo as your guide and driver, you will have a great time.

Great experience, had a blast with my wifey as we were feeding all the hungry monkeys. At first I was not really that excited for the first part of the tour about cacao and coffee but it turned out to be a good surprise as it was informative as well as a great time with tour guide papi chulo. Also JJ and Virgilio our guides at first and in the end were great This is a must do tour in Punta Cana!
Awesome tour

What a fun morning. Pickup at hotel was excellent. We expected a green bus, but open air truck came. Was hesitant at first, but it worked out. Our guide Ruddy was great. Drove to the Runners Adventures area and first enjoyed the coffee farm tour. Very interesting. Loved that we could walk through the owners house. Enjoyed the samples. After this we went to see the monkeys. There was a little delay with organization to get in, but things worked out. Enjoyed the monkey experience. Was awesome.
