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 had a good jungle hike experience on "Monkey Island" (complete with following our boat captain/guide chopping the way in with a machete) but we didn't find any monkeys. Not a guarantee to see them, despite the name!
