So worth it!

This tour was one of our faves. They were very accomodating with pickup. We stayed at an airbnb and they stopped outside our neighborhood for pickup. We were traveling with a 2 year old. I almost brought my carseat and stroller but I was so glad that I didn't. The safari bu seats won't accomdate a carseat and there's little room for a stroller. There's only a small walk between monkeyland and the coco house however, it's steep and then there are stairs. Not wheelchair, or stroller accesible. Our tour guide and driver (Edy and Adolfo) were the best! They made it fun and informative during the drive. Back packs and bags of any kind aren't allowed within the exhibit. There's a free chest/box that's available for you to put your bag in, or you can rent a private locker. I opted for the free box and I felt that my bag was safe. No one on this tour tried to hard sell us on anything like we've experienced in other tours. The monkey were amazing! My toddler had so much fun spotting them in the trees. The monkeys were not scared of us and were very friendly. We spent a lot of the time waiting our turn for food in our food dish becasue the photgrapher was taking pictures of each group. They turned out great. If you want to buy them, it's $13/picture or $40 for all of them. EVeryone on this tour was very friendly. I didn't feel rushed and the monkeys were amazing. It's a must do tour.

This was such a fun experience in such a beautiful place. Our tour guide Edy Diaz and driver Hulbani was very knowledgeable and we loved learning more about the culture. The monkeys were so fun to see and we had a great time leaning about coffee beans and cocoa. I would highly recommend this tour.

Everything was so perfect about this trip. Our tour guide and operator Angel and Roberto were fantastic. Angel was full of knowledge about his home country of the Dominican Republic and shared with us some very interesting facts about his country. My family and I had the perfect day. Highly recommend 10/10 especially if you’re traveling with kids.

Great activity for everyone from kids to families, couples, or solo travelers. The resort pick-up was on time, the tour guide was great and entertaining, the Monkeyland guide was great. My nephew, 2 years of age, enjoyed himself so much since he is an animal lover. He was so excited to feed the monkeys. We also visited the nearby coffee farm which was quick by nice. Some tips: enjoy the drive because it is scenic. because the monkeys are small and quick, there are no bags or anything really allowed inside. If possible, bring as little as you can but if that’s not possible they have locker rentals for $5 USD. It’s easier to bring cash, $USD preferably because the lockers and photos are not priced in DOP. Bring additional water just in case. Have fun.

We had a great time. A big thumbs up to Emilio who was our tour guide. He did an amazing job and he was so sweet and very informing....he told us so many things about the culture and gave a 100% on the plantation tour we took. Couldn't have asked for a better guide! Thanks so much Emilio! Also to our great driver Adolto.....he was awesome!!!! The monkeys were so lovable I wanted to take them all home!

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.
