Wow! Better than expected! Monkeys are free to leave area…but come to eat all day! Very conscientious about all! Monkeys are small, soft and gentle…no mishaps! 2 Little kids…3-5 yo were initially scared…but warmed up and ended up having fun…a great surprise!” –TexGal713 | Oct 23 2018 Read this review on Trip Advisor

The next 45 minutes were occupied for a guided tour that allows you to interact in close proximity to our beautiful and friendly squirrel monkeys at Monkeyland. These charming and intelligent monkeys have been formed by a Canadian couple with 35 years of experience working with animals, including 12 years at the Toronto Zoo to teaching monkeys to trust and enjoy the company of humans.
This tour is based on 5 acres of a beautiful piece of land that monkeys have made their home. The monkeys are completely accustomed to human contact. They come down from the trees to sit on your shoulder and eat from your hands. Beware …. love all things bright and interesting!
Little monkeys loves to pose for the cameras and probably will sit, and if allowed, see themselves in your camera. Adorable! Come share an unforgettable experience!
