Observe squirrel monkeys on this trip to Monkeyland, deep in the Dominican Republic's jungle. Ride a safari truck on this 5-hour tour through local coffee and cacao plantations, then visit the monkey sanctuary and and its botanical gardens. You'll learn about the local farmers' organic farming methods, taste freshly picked tropical fruit, and see and feed 20 monkeys that have been raised to be comfortable around people. Round-trip transportation from Bavaro and Punta Cana hotels is included.

What to Expect

A brightly painted safari vehicle will pick you up in the early morning at your Bavaro or Punta Cana hotel. Get to know your local guide on the way to a typical Dominican country plantation. 

Meet the local famers and hear about their organic farming methods, used to cultivate cinnamon, cacao, coffee and vanilla. Taste tropical fruit plucked freshly from the tree, and take advantage of the opportunity to purchase some of these straight-from-the-source products to take home. 

Climb back in your jeep and ascend a mountain road deep into the jungle. Arrive at Monkeyland, a 5-acre (2-hectare) squirrel monkey habitat managed by a dedicated couple. Follow your guide on a 45-minute tour of the sanctuary, where you'll have the chance to watch and feed the monkeys. Visit the botanical garden, featuring native trees, plants and flowers, before boarding your jeep for transport back to your hotel at the end of your 5-hour tour.

Awesome experience!

We booked our excursion via Breathless Resort and we weren't disappointed. This excursion is very educational and fun. The monkeys are truly amazing and cute. You get to see how the locals live, see how coffee and cocoa are made and see the beautiful countryside.

Great excursion for couples or family with children

Great experience, beautiful Mountain View’s, plenty of monkeys to feed. Monkeys jump right out of the trees to interact with guests. So much fun.
