The Monkey Island or Isla de Los Micos is a 45-hectares natural reserve that takes its name from the vast population of squirrel monkeys. The elevated walkways and platforms throughout the area offer a real close-up experience. The monkeys have proper behaviour and a complex social organisation. Our local guide will thoroughly explain reproduction and feeding habits. Here, it is the perfect place to enjoy the breathtaking and fascinating fauna and flora while exploring hidden waterways through the rainforest.
Upriver we will visit an indigenous village in Macedonia, the Tikuna community, one of the native communities in the region. There, you can admire the handicrafts designed and crafted by its inhabitants. For instance, tapestries and dolls made of “yanchama” (the bark of an endemic tree) and beautiful accessories made from seeds. Besides, spectacular woven bags with “chambira” (Amazon Palm tree), and a great variety of objects such as”pensadores” (thinkers), walking sticks, belt buckles and necklaces made of bloodwood (Brosimum Rubescens Taub) or as they call it in Spanish,”palosangre”, a splendid type of wood. If you want, this visit can omit or shorter to visit another community, which has a low tourist profile.
