Covid-19 Update

Due to health and safety regulations, this itinerary may change. See Know before you go for the latest updates.

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.

Tour was nice, guide was great and also spoke German as requested. Monkeys were super cute and trusting, are well taken care of. There is enough time for photos. Ride was pleasant in the open truck. Picked up and returned on time. Interesting to see how people live there, how coffee and cocoa are made and also nice to taste fresh there. Not too long winded. Informative and interesting. Was a great tour.

Overall it was okay, although we were picked up 45 minutes late. Furthermore, the two employees who brought us to the monkeys are very unfriendly. For everyone else please bring time because you can see the monkeys for about 40 minutes but you will be presented with products for a total of 3 hours in order to buy them. The tour guides are very polite and explain many things during the trip that you didn't know. Thanks to Emilio / George keep it up!

Superb experience, Pick up at 7:00 am sharp in the morning in front of our resort. Franklin was our guide. He is fluent in French English Spanish. After picking up the other participants in other hotels, head to the coffee and cocoa plantation in the mountains. Our daughters were delighted, they got to taste pure cocoa and see how REAL chocolate is made. Then the same goes for the coffee and it's time to feed the little monkeys. You spend 15/20 minutes at the end with these little beasts that go over your head. A beautiful experience that none of us regrets having had. Thank you to the guide and the driver for even dropping us off in a store to buy Dominican rum at a much more reasonable price than in a hotel.
