  • The Monkeys are adorable! This village is a fun place to explore, with fun activities such as a music show and a donut making class. It’s great for kids ands at heart!  more »
  • This attraction is small and very quiet with beautiful scenery. The absolute best part was the spider monkey encounter. Would definitely go again just to see the monkeys!  more »
