We had the morning before our flight home. So glad we did this, the monkeys were adorable and we really enjoyed spending time here! Takes about an hour to get there from Iquitos, enjoyable boat ride down the Amazon.

I enjoy the experience very much. As soon as I've arrived a little monkey jumped over me and sit on my shoulder. He spent my entire visit with me. I recomend this visit to people who likes nature and animals.
