Highly recommended!!

From pick up to drop off all I can say is what an experience!! I have 2 children, 7 and 14, and Monkeyland and the Plantation tour kept them entertained & engaged with ZERO complaints. I am so happy I decided to book this excursion. We also had the opportunity to see the people of DR and all the roadside businesses. We couldn't stop due to COVID restrictions but what a beautiful country and people. Our guide & driver, Ruddy and Frandy were excellent!

Monkeys galore!

Sammy and his crew were really nice, fun and informative. We had a great experience interacting with the monkeys, learning about coffee, chocolate and all other agriculture and cultural things about DR. Sammy knows his stuff and has all sorts of homeopathic remedies too. The guys that took us in to feed the monkeys were really fun too. They even helped a little girl overcome her fear and anxiety about the monkeys. By the end of the visit with the monkeys, she had them on her shoulder eating fruit.

The monkeys were soooo light and cute. I love the fact that they’re well taken care of and the staff were knowledgeable. I would have liked more time with the monkeys but it was worth it and the view was breathtaking..

Tour guide was nice , experience was underwhelming not what I expected for the price, much better trips elsewhere where you see and view a lot more and only get a few minutes with the monkey

Edy was an EXCELLENT tour guide!! He was very knowledgeable & had a great sense of humor. Rene was a great driver. I felt safe traveling to & from the Monkeyland excursion. The monkeys were the cutest little animals you'd ever see ❤️ Their tiny paws were so soft.

Not worth the money and waiting
Nasya_H

This trip as a whole was not worth it. In general: poor organization, a lot of waiting, dirty jokes, vast groups of ppl (it felt more like a zoo). The coffee/cacao info was vague and it was in a hurry (10 min). The coffee and cacao tasting was more like a selling pitch, rather than an experience (also 10 min). Sometimes we had to wait without any info. You have to pay 5$ for a locker/or leave your belongings without supervision. Taking your own picture wasn't easy, because the moment you could do that (when they put some food on you) their photographer was taking over you, expecting you to get their pictures at the end. The monkeys were the only positive experience (30 min) from this whole day. In general 1 hour of activities and 5 hours of traveling and waiting.

Fantastic Tour❤️

It was 5 of us and we had a good time. Our tour guide Chris Sexy Papi 6 was so funny but thorough on what we would see and learn. The monkeys were so cute and greedy. The tour was really educational as to how they make chocolate, etc. The coconut oil products are really good and their hot chocolate was fantastic. We would definitely do this again.

An incredible experience for the whole family

Hands down, one of the most incredible trips we have even been on. The interactive monkey experience was incredible and made my partners week. The guides are funny, entertaining and knowledgeable. You learn loads, get to sample local produce and have the option to buy, but no hard sales pushy reps. 10 out of 10, would highly recommend it.
