What amazing work these people do. Well worth a visit for animal lovers. This is a sanctuary for previously injured or abused animals and is not a zoo. Lots of Mozzies though, so go prepared.

We visited this place while on our holiday it was part of our day trip, the cenote was great but when we got to the sanctuary we got attacked by loads of mosquitoes, also the meal what was provided was awful made us sick, the monkeys were lovely.

Hi Jojoboo! Thank you very much for sharing your experience with everyone. As you will understand, there are several factors that we cannot control, such as the mosquito season. We are also very sorry that our snack was not good for you, we prepare food with the strictest quality and health rules. We agree with what the monkeys are great, that's why the project wants to save them. Regards.
