Follow the Amazon River to a jungle island outside of Iquitos and you will be greeted by the local residents.  The excitement is obvious as you step off the boat and 60 of your new best friends want to climb all over you, these are not typical new friends because this is Monkey Island.


Take a half day and check out some rain forest habitat where you can get up-close and personal with various species of monkeys. Hold on to your camera, hat and sunglasses because these fury little friends like souvenirs, even if you weren’t offering. Don't worry, you will go home with all your possessions but these little monkeys will positively steal your heart.
