How it works:
- Situation: the real La Isla De Los Monos is a monkey rescue center certified by the government where the monkeys are rescued to be rehabilitated and then released back into the wild.
- Set-up: the fakes however, keep monkeys in cages and acquire these monkeys illegally rather than by rescuing them. Further, they pay boat drivers a commission to bring tourists here.
Places to beware:
- Iquitos: La Isla De Los Monos
What to do:
- You can reach there by checking with the Tourist Information Office near Plaza de Armas, or go straight to the office – 416 Condamine, Iquitos or refer to these steps on the site.
