Full description

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.

Following our reservation we received an email informing us of the meeting place and time for the excursion. This activity was supervised by our great Guide Jesus and his fellow driver Frandy! On the program: animation presenting the art of working coffee and cocoa + tasting. Tasting of Mama Juana, typical Dominican alcohol. Possibility to buy different products (ranging from 5$ to 30$) Visit of monkeyland, before starting you are offered to leave your personal belongings in collective lockers (free) or in lockers with padlocks (rental at 10$). Then the monkey tour starts and there are several stops where you feed the monkeys and have a photographer take your picture. You are also free to bring your smartphone and take your own photos. At the end of the visit you obviously have the possibility to buy the photos, credit card ok ($40 the pack of 15 photos in digital version / $10 the photo printed on site)

Too bad the guide didn't speak more French during the trip. He spoke almost everything in English. Otherwise he was great, top welcome, top driver. Too bad they talk to us about something completely other than the monkeys at the start and that we only spent 30 minutes with the monkeys.

It was a great activity that was both fun and educational. The only negative point is the stops we had to make to pick up all the participants it took about 1h30 if not more to pick up everyone with the children it's a bit difficult because they are often impatient but overall the excursion was worth it.
