You can see monkies, you can see some mangroves, othervise it is nothing special. Better to spend time and money on other things except if you are a fan of a monkies.

You cannot miss a daily visit to Jozani Forest...red monkeys and a natural landscape is what you will find while walking through a lush nature and vegetation. This is a protected area and visitors are part of this conservative project.

Waited a long time for a guide to be available. Ended up being a group of 25 people, most of whom were idiots that either took selfies the whole time or tried giving Redbull cans to the monkeys. Couldn't catch the information given by the...More
