Great Experience
Oct 2021
We did this excursion on 10/21/2021 and thought it was excellent, overall.

Both our driver (Angel) and our guide (George) on the drive to the plantation/Monkey Land were terrific, and we really enjoyed learning more about the Dominican Republic en route.

The plantation was interesting, but pretty buggy, and of course they do try to sell you everything at the end of the tour, so this was our least favorite part (though I would still consider it a decent experience in general). We did get to sample a small amount of coffee, hot chocolate, and mamajuana, and we enjoyed that. You also get to see their process of making the chocolate and coffee, which is neat if you like to learn things, though some people may find this boring, I'm sure.

The monkeys themselves were amazing. We had many opportunities when they would jump on you and sit on you, and the keepers came around and put food in your bowl for them 3-4 times, so you had plenty of chances to interact (they also jump on you and run around even when you don't have the food). They legitimately will sit on your head. We also thought the keepers were really great. We did not have any monkeys urinate/defecate on us, but we did see this happen to other people, so just keep that in mind if you're squeamish about that sort of thing.

It is true that for the professional photos they take, they charge either $40 for all of them (digitally) or $10/print. Some people seem really indignant about that, but I feel like that is pretty much par for the course for these types of things. We also had plenty of chances to take photos with our phones, and there was only maybe one time in the beginning when they tell you to put your phone away. We took maybe 30 photos ourselves.

To be clear, pretty much everything that you do as a "tourist" in the Caribbean has some gimmicky features - and this is no different - however I did not feel that this excursion was overly so. The thing that perturbed us the most about this experience frankly had nothing to do with the tour itself, but that so many other people there on the tour with us worsened the experience by being generally obnoxious, and/or failing to follow directions (causing the guides to need to repeat things, and slow things down). Of course, this is pretty much par for the course anywhere you go nowadays, as well.

Lastly - just as a COVID disclaimer - they really are pretty safety-oriented here, and you are required to wear your mask over your nose while you are in the monkey habitat. We were not bothered by this, but I know that some people really take umbrage, so if you are opposed to masks, perhaps consider a different tour.

10/10 recommend!
Oct 2021
We were on our honeymoon in Punta Cana and we are SO HAPPY that we went here! This was easily one of our favorite things. The monkeys are ADORABLE. They jump all over you and are so light/soft. It was a bunch of fun. After the visit with the monkeys you get to walk through and see how cocoa power and coffee beans are made. Our guide (Edy) and driver (Aldolfo) were very kind, knowledgeable, and excited to show us their country. We learned so much and enjoyed it. We didn't book the zipline, but we wish that we would have because the area was beautiful. We didn't have a lot of days and were debating on this vs Scape Park. We wanted a half day adventure because we also wanted to be lazy. This was the perfect choice in my opinion. 10/10 recommend if your a couple, solo, or family! Will be so much fun for everyone.

This was the first exercursion for our honeymoon trip in the Dominican Republic and it was beyond amazing! It exceeded all of our expectations and Dario and Rafael were absolutely incredible! We had monkeys all over us... Once in a lifetime experience for sure! And the length of time with the monkeys was perfect! The tour was filled with so much information and the ride was beautifully scenic. We definitely recommend this place... They took great care of us!

Worth it!

Great tour! The monkeys seem well cared for and are lively. The plantation tour was informative. Guides were good through the whole process including transportation. Bring some money - they will offer you the chance to buy some photos from your excursion, coffee, sugar and other goods on site.

Carlos Manuel - 11/10 ( English - perfect; Russian - perfect)!!!!👍👍👍✅ Best guide I’ve ever seen, made this Excursion worth its money
Monkeyland - 1/10 (40$ for Photos; Very bad Experience with monkeys, they only want you to buy their photos and don’t let you take good photos with your phone)
70$ - Excursion and 40$ - Photos🤦🏽‍♀️

I personally didn’t like a Monkey-land trip, but Carlos made this experience much better by explaining much on Russian and English
For Russian people it would be excellent!

P.s. Monkey did pee on me 3x times ;(

Pp.s. 3 Stars only because of Carlos, otherwise 1 Star for Monkey-land
