We had been there with our little daughter (1.5 years old) and drove there with a rental car. It is very well signposted and can be found accordingly. The tour was great, our daughter loved the monkeys and other animals. The guide explained to us where the animals come from and what they have experienced. Every employee warmly walks around with the animals, cleaning is also done during opening hours. We are accompanied by a photographer who took photos of us with the animals. A great day out for the whole family that only takes a few hours.

It's expensive in my opinion but still worth it because all the staff at Akumal Monkey Sanctuary are passionate about working for the animals and it's for a good cause. You can also take pictures yourself or voluntarily purchase the pictures you have taken afterwards. This is also quite expensive, but the pictures taken were really good.

Fantastisch :) Die Tiere und das Personal arbeiten hier wirklich mit viel Herzblut. Klar es ist im Endeffekt ein Zoo mit Foto Attraktion, aber es hat sehr Spaß gemacht und die Cenote ist ebenfalls hervorragend. Auch ein Transport für 10$ ist möglich für hin und zurück. Kurz gesagt: Unbedingt buchen
