On this island, most monkeys are uncaged except for the most aggressive. They are soft and friendly like kittens, and hang on as you roam around. The visit could be as short as an hour on the island, including walking, if you're nearby in Iquitos....More

About 1 hours boat right on the Amazon from Iquitos. About 7 different species of monkey most of which you can play with: quite unusual. Definitely worth it.

I really enjoyed coming to see the monkeys that live here to be given a presentation on the "why" behind the center. The monkeys jumped in your lap!

We had the morning before our flight home. So glad we did this, the monkeys were adorable and we really enjoyed spending time here! Takes about an hour to get there from Iquitos, enjoyable boat ride down the Amazon.

We came here to volunteer for a week and fell in love with the monkeys as well as the family that cares for them. The illegal animal trade in Iquitos is an ugly and devastating business. Whenever you plan to visit or work with animals,...More
