Tulum Monkey Sanctuary
Located within the holiday resort of Tulum, the Tulum Monkey Sanctuary is a great place to spend the day and learn all about the different types of monkeys in Riveria Maya.
This sanctuary is over 2.7 acres and takes care of all different animals such as monkeys, White tail deer, donkeys, horses, iguanas, ducks and exotic birds.
Here you can explore a number of trails which wind throughout an open-air enclosure where the monkeys are free to swing, jump and play where they wish.
There is even a tour available which includes a trip around the sanctuary and exploring the Mayan jungle. You will also get the chance to swim in two cenotes and explore a ring of caves!
The sanctuary is owned by Richard, who has over 20 years of experience in monkey rescue and rehabilitation. Richard is motivated to provide nourishing food and safe shelter for the monkeys that had been previously used in gift shops and restaurants as photo-ops for tourists.
Open Monday to Sunday from 9:00 AM – 6:00 PM.
Free parking is available for visitors to the sanctuary.
