Cayo Santiago “Monkey Island” Humacao, Puerto Rico kayaking tour of the island and Rhesus monkey watching
On the East Coast of Humacao, Puerto Rico, close to Palmas del Mar, is an adorably named place of Monkey Island. The island is easily visible from the shore of Punta Santiago. Cayo Santiago, also known as Monkey Island, is shaped like a lower case r, and is a research colony/habitat to Rhesus Monkeys.
And you can kayak out to the island for up close viewing of the Monkeys!
When the Nevis Tourism organization invited me to visit the island on a Familiziation trip (FAM trip) I was excited and a bit nervous. They arrange dining, activities, and most important, the hotel accommodations. I am both a control freak and a pampered princess. I am very particular about my privacy, location, amenities, safety, and above all actually enjoying my travel accommodations!
Not only did the Mount Nevis Hotel live up to my standards, it exceeded expectations! From the moment we drove down the windy road leading to the property I had an immediate sign of relief and comfort in this darling boutique hotel property.
