Covid-19 Update

Due to health and safety regulations, this itinerary may change. See Know before you go for the latest updates.

Visit the coconut house or “Casa del Coco” to learn how coconut oil is produced and taste exotic Caribbean fruits, roasted coffee, and cacao. Interact in close proximity with friendly squirrel monkeys for the next 45 minutes. These charming and intelligent monkeys have been trained by a Canadian couple with over 35 years of experience working with animals, including 12 years at the Toronto Zoo teaching monkeys how to interact with humans. The tour is based on 5 acres of beautiful land that monkeys have made their home. They will descend from the trees to sit on your shoulder and eat from your hands. They also love to pose for the cameras, especially for selfies.

It was a great experience! So many great pictures were taken by us on our own phones, plus their professional pics were only $40 for all (for 2 people) so got those too. Personally I could have done without the “cultural tour” part, but understand they wanted to add something to it since it takes a bit to get there.

OMG!!! This was so much fun! Before seeing the monkeys, we learned about mama Juana, making cacao and coffee!! They grow and harvest it all there!! The monkeys though are so friggin adorable!! They are a bit much for those that don’t like things jumping on them. I thought it was hilarious though. Our transport driver and hosts Jesus and Brian were amazing. They even stopped on the way back to give us all mangos from a local stand. I got a fresh coconut!! Totally do it if you have time. FYI, it’s a long excursion for little kids. Bigger ones can handle the walking. There’s a bit of walking in between levels.

Tour guide was really informative from moment we were picked up. Coffee tasting was interesting. Monkey part was superb, My son, Wife and I had a ball. Can't remember his name, but Monkey guide who has a scar on his back was awesome. Top marks. Was chatting to him for ages afterwards. Would highly recommend.
