On this island, most monkeys are uncaged except for the most aggressive. They are soft and friendly like kittens, and hang on as you roam around. The visit could be as short as an hour on the island, including walking, if you're nearby in Iquitos....More

About 1 hours boat right on the Amazon from Iquitos. About 7 different species of monkey most of which you can play with: quite unusual. Definitely worth it.
