- Explore a typical Dominican home
- Your chance to play with monkeys
- Discover how a coffee plantation works
This fun and educational experience in the Dominican Republic lets you get up close with a bunch of friendly squirrel monkeys, so tame that they’ll take a nut or piece of fruit from your hand, or even pose for a selfie! You’ll be visiting a Dominican country home, to explore a coffee and cacao plantation, and the monkeys live on-site, cared for by a couple with years of experience with animals.
Try delicious roasted coffee, or some exotic Caribbean fruits. The chocolate you’ll taste here will be some of the best you’ll ever have. There’s also some attractive botanic gardens to roam around, where you can learn about the medicinal benefits of certain plants, and pick fresh fruit from the trees. After your guided tour of the plantation and house, spend some time getting to know the monkeys, and maybe even let one sit on your shoulder for a photo.
