Set on 280 acres of farmland between Sosúa and Cabarete, nine kilometers (6 miles) off the road leading to El Choco National Park, Monkey Jungle Park gets rave reviews for its setting and its recreational offers. It is home to squirrel capuchin monkeys, a seven-station zip line, a botanical garden, and an ancient Taino cave you can descend into 18 meters (60 feet) below ground. The monkeys mingle with visitors, posing for photos, and climbing on your shoulders if you choose. The site also serves as a recovery center for rescue capuchins. Tour the botanical gardens tucked inside a grotto, zipline across the farm–with runs stretching up to 800 feet long–or brave the Cave Descender, an 18-meter (60-foot) cable-controlled drop into a cave. All proceeds from tours go to fund an on-site medical and dental clinic.
