We happened upon this private wildlife preserve by chance. What an amazing place, although you can't tell by your first impression. We noticed a small sign pointing to the monkey area, so we took the path and found a refuge for injured spider monkeys. We were delighted with the sighting, especially with one fellow who got up on his feet and walked around bi-pedally for a few moments. On we went around a path we found, congratulating ourselves on the excitement of seeing the monkeys. Suddenly we found ourselves in a breathtaking forest with a howler monkey overhead. Then we saw another, and another, and another... you get the idea. Scores of them in the trees, chattering away at us. After 15 or 20 minutes (and hundreds of photos!) we moved on a ways, only to encounter a huge group of Capucin monkeys, so-called because the back two-thirds of their bodies is black and the head and neck are white, like a cappuccino. We saw lots of other wildlife as well on our walk - birds and lizards and deer - and practically no other people. The walk through the forest was nearly all level, so it wasn't difficult at all. This is a GREAT place to go with children, even small children, who will get a huge kick out of the monkeys.
