All about Monkeys of Osa

Saimiri Foundation was born in April 2010 with the purpose of protecting the natural resources of Costa Rica and especially primates. It was founded by local primatologist Daniela Solano, who will guide you through the interesting world of the monkeys of Costa Rica.

You will start early in the morning in Puerto Jimenez and take the road towards Tamales with your guide. While participating on a monkey tour with Daniela, you will first learn detailed information about the 4 primates that inhabit Costa Rica and luckily the Osa Peninsula! Then, you will go with your local expert guide to look for monkeys. You will be able to take some notes of where the monkeys are and what are they doing, and will maybe try to count the group and describe their demographic aspects too. The natural history of the rainforest and the relationship of all beings in the forest will also be discussed during your tour. You will enjoy a break with some snacks before coming back to Puerto Jimenez.

Things to bring: hiking shoes, light or earth-colored clothes, and binoculars (optional).
