I really enjoyed coming to see the monkeys that live here to be given a presentation on the "why" behind the center. The monkeys jumped in your lap!

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.
