Spent a lovely hour here trying to photograph the monkeys. There is an opportunity to buy tee shirts or to contribute to this rescue centre near the toilets but this was not readily advertised to the group.

The island is a great stop while in the area. The monkeys are fun and like to play. Just watch out for hair ties and sunglasses as they will take them from you.
