where is the best place to see monkeys on Barbados
Also can be seen in the trees at back of beach in Fitts Village - walking south
We saw them on the road that leads to the Atlantis Hotel last year and also one was just wandering along the path at Port St Charles where we were stopping and we were really surprised to see one there as we never have before. I think they are about in many areas and you just come accross them but if you want a guaranteed viewing you will see them at the wildlife reserve.
You might want to find out what time feeding time is as it seems they are more likely to be about then at the wildlife reserve.
Where are you staying?
This year with all the rain the monkeys are everywhere, usually this time of year as it gets drier the go up into the bush a bit more. So they might be easily seen near where you'll be staying.
Saw you asking about the Wildlife Reserve on another post, that is the best place to see Green Monkeys on the island. I'd recommend you visit around 2pm as this is when feeding time occurs. You will not be disappointed. I live closeby and can advise that scores of monkeys are indeed around.
While its true that they are other places around the island where you can find monkeys it's no guarantee they will be there when you go. Sometimes they are behind my house, sometimes not...
Had one on my garden fence yesterday afternoon which was quite a surprise, eating a mango! and I live on the coast in a residential neighbourhood close to the Sheraton Centre. I have seen loads of monkeys recently all over the place but to guarantee a sighting I would definitely say the wildlife reserve.
I have seen them near the Hilton Hotel, on the beach behind Coral Mist Hotel, nearly Farley Hill and also obviously at the Wildlife Reserve!
The Wildlife Reserve is definetely the place to see them. We saw loads of them when we were in the car park, but it is lovely to see them with the giant tortoises & the other animals in the Reserve. It is quite cheap to go in. You do see them in a lot of places. My daughter even saw one running along the beach wall at Coral Mist a couple of years ago.
thank you for the info
