It takes luck and good timing to be able to see or feed the monkeys. The island is quite big and if the monkeys (14 or15) in total don't come to you, you will not be able to see them. If you came after a...More
This island was a project that failed. Monkeys that were stolen and sold in the black market were recovered 30 years ago and reintroduced in this island as a first step back into the jungle. 4 species were introduced but only 2 survived. These are...More
This is basically an island where they relocated monkeys several years ago. They seem like they have adapted to people visiting daily. We had a small group and everyone was able to give bananas directly to the monkeys. It was a short hike into the...More
We were brought here as part of our tour with Monte Amazonico, and it was the only uninteresting part of our stay in the jungle. If the monkeys would have came down to take the fruit we brought for them it would have been neat....More
We were taken here as part of a rather disappointing 'Kyak', Zipline, etc tour. I really disliked the whole Monkey Island thing. It is totally not okay to feed wild life. God knows how many groups go each day; I saw at least 4; the...More
The monkeys were stolen from the jungle and dumped on the island to become a tourist attraction years ago. The monkeys are now desperate for food as it's limited on the island so now they're trapped there relying on tourists to feed them which is...More
We heard many people staying at our lodge that they had been to monkey island a few times and were unable to see anything other than mosquitos. When I went with Carlos Expeditions, we were very lucky to enter a clearing where there were up...More

I can help by listing the species that i have seen so far in various visits: Capuchin de Cabeza Dura, Capuchin with white front, Bolivian Squirrel Monkey, Brown Tamarin Monkey, Red howler monkey, spider monkey, Golden Lion Tamarin. Not sure there is a pygmy marmoset though... Since its habitat is in Brazil up to the Atlantic coast, these monkeys will end up here only if they are confiscated from illegal trade. But i don't remember seeing one. I bet you are familiar with the fact that this is a project funded by the same institution that runs the Eco Amazonia property and involves re-introduction of captive species back to the wild. So there are only a few wild animals here. If you extend your visit in the part were no human constructions are allowed, you shall see some wild animals if you are lucky, since in this protected part the animals roam free the jungle. I wish it was a bigger part of the forest that was protected.
