Akumal Monkey Sanctuary
& Rescued Animals
Our Sanctuary is a place where you can find a great variety of primates and other rescued animals. From the majestic and emblematic spider monkey to beautiful rescued capuchin monkeys and ring-tailed lemurs from the faraway lands of Madagascar. Our biggest success is becoming a home for rescued and donated animals of many other species such as goats, deer, and macaws.
Come and have fun interacting with a many of them!More about AMS
In the words of our guests
"Put simply, if you’re wondering whether to pay the Akumal Monkey Sanctuary a visit, wonder no more. Just go. The tour is fascinating, interactive and led by knowledgeable guides. Even in the hot weather, the reserve is shady and refreshments are offered. And the time you spend with the monkeys is enchanting. And the prices are reasonable, with the money going to a good cause. I can’t recommend it highly enough."
"This was a wonderful trip and so happy we went. We took our 2 year old and he loved it. It was close to our hotel and was manageable with a toddler. The staff were amazing and always thoughtful about the babies patience level. The animals were beautiful to see and interact with. Great time!"
"The Akumal Monkey Sanctuary was a pleasant surprise for our annual trip to Akumal Bay! In addition to monkeys, monkeys, and monkeys, we had the pleasure of interacting with kangaroos, burros, and several other animals. Worth every minute and every dollar! I highly recommend a visit to the monkey sanctuary!"
