We just walked around the park hoping to see monkeys but we didn’t. We had kayaked the river once before so didn’t do the glass bottom boat. The water from the springs is crystal clear and worth the visit.

We went really early in the morning hoping to see monkeys. Sadly we didn't see a single one all day. Better luck next time.
