What Does Monkey Island Do?

What Does Monkey Island Do?The monkey pet trade is a widespread tragedy that affects monkeys all over the world. Babies are taken away from their mothers and sold as pets, performers or food. When the monkeys are brought to the center, the first step is making sure they are healthy. The monkeys are often in bad condition from malnutrition and poor living conditions. They are fed the essential nutrients they need and nursed back to full health.

Once the monkeys have recovered, it is time to rehabilitate them. The new monkeys are introduced to those already on the island and live a cage free life as they build up their strength. They are closely monitored by the workers at Monkey Island. When they are satisfied that the monkey in question is fit enough then it is released into the wild.

Monkey Island Tours

Monkey Island ToursThe best way to experience Monkey Island is by Amazon River cruise. This will enable you to make the most of your time there and to engage in a number of different activities. A tour will allow you to watch, feed and play with the monkeys, swim in the Amazon River and enjoy a fresh, delicious lunch. You will also get a tour of the jungle and the chance to admire some of the local plant life.

Apart from an Amazon cruise, you also have the option to visit the island independently. Some people choose to spend the night at Monkey Island. This allows them to fully immerse themselves in their surroundings and to wake up in the morning to the cries of monkeys swinging from the trees around them. As sun sets, you will be able to embark on night excursions in the jungle to see what goes on beneath the canopy under the cover of darkness.

How to Get to Monkey Island

How to Get to Monkey IslandIf you are on an Amazon riverboat, your cruise will take you to the island. If you are going to the island independently, then first you will need to head to Puerto de Productores where you will find a large produce market next to a harbor filled with small boats. Ask for a boat to Varadero/Mazan and hop in. The journey will take around 45 minutes and when you arrive the staff from the rescue center will pick you up in a Peque Peque (a traditional boat made of wood) and take you to the center. Entry to the centre costs 20 soles (approximately $7).
