Maybe howler monkeys could come over from the Iberostar? They go north to the Rius so why not south.

Have always seen iguanas. Monkies are usually by the 1000 building in the beach section

We stayed there two years ago for twelve days. Lots of agoutis,iguanas and monkeys. Monkeys disappeared after first few days and didn't come back.

Absolutely we were there last December and got to see about 8 monkeys at the same time they were in the beach section which has a atruim in the middle of the rooms, it was amazing there was a couple of babies! There are iguanas not as much as in akumel but you will see them!

We saw a beautiful little white kitty that my daughter named, Riviera. She hung out in the Riviera section by the shelter area that Sandos has provided!

We also saw a family of monkeys in a berm of trees just before the Meeting Point, if you walking toward the beach!

The donkeys were really sweet, mom, dad and baby...who really wanted to play!

Also, one day we were petting the donkeys and all of a sudden 2 Golden Retriever dogs came running thru the property, and were gone just as fast as they appeared.

We were disappointed that we never saw any Coati's:(

We saw iguana's, agouti's', coati's and lots of monkeys by the kids club. We stayed in the Hacienda section and in the early morning saw lots of parrots in the trees in the jungle. Lots of greedy grackles in the open-air buffet restaurants too!
