A brightly painted safari vehicle picks 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 coffee or hot chocolate, 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 guided tour of the sanctuary, where you 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 tour.

Wonderful Experience!

My wife and I had an exceptional experience visiting Monkeyland and the Plantation. The monkies are cute and very well trained. No need to be afraid. Our tour guide, Dario, spoke very good English and was incredibly friendly and knowledgeable. Our driver, Rene, provided us with safe transportation via bus. Bottled water was provided to us on the bus as well as on the Plantation. We enjoyed the sampling of Dominican coffee, hot cocoa, and Mama Juana.

We had a total blast on the tour. Our guide was Edy Diaz and our driver was Samuel Felix. Our transportation arrived on time and it was about a 35 minute drive to the Monkey land. During the ride, Edy answered all questions and had alot of knowledge about the country and the area. When we arrived to the park everything went pretty smooth. I would suggest if possible not to bring bags of any kind with you to the tour. You are only allowed to bring your hat, glasses, and phone inside the park. Otherwise you have to rent a locker. They give you plenty of tike to spend with the monkeys and plenty of food for them so you get alot of interaction. It was a total blast! After the monkey experience, you get to learn about making coffee and taste test some cocoa, coffee and they gave us some Mangos that were absolutely delicious. I would highly recommend this tour. Its fairly priced for what you get. From the pickup at hotel to being dropped back off was about 5 hours.

MonkeyLand experience was awesome and easily deserves 5-stars. On the Safari Tour, we learned how local coffee, coconut oil, and chocolate is made and it was very interesting and informative but ended with a 45-minute sales pitch. Shorten the 45-minutes to 15-20 and this is a lock for 5-stars. Everyone was very nice and the monkeys were awesome! Many thanks to Hamlet and the others for making this a great experience.

This was awesome!! The tour guides were knowledgeable and friendly. The experience in itself was amazing. The monkeys were gentle. I was so nervous but after the first few times the monkeys jumped on me, I got used to it. We did this excursion for my boyfriend's 25th birthday and it was the best way to bring it in. Also transportation was provided and our tour guide on the bus was funny and informative. I would suggest everyone do this excursion!

My family and I had a great time! This was a great experience and the workers were amazing. I thought my daughter would be scared but she was actually the bravest of everyone, excited and happy to see the monkeys and really enjoyed herself. While some people were screaming and running from the monkeys jumping on their heads. I would definitely book this experience again. They took covid-19 precautions serious and that was a plus for me! A lot of people take it as a joke but they were really hands on about face covering, small groups and sanitizing.
