If you like watching moneys this is definitely the place for you as there are an abundance of them. Personally, I am not too interested in watching the monkeys...they actually start to scare me when they have too much surround you (had bad experience before).

i don't know if they are vaccinated, but if you do not give them food they will not come to you and your child can see them. l have seen people with young children the monkeys are only interested in food.

We went mid afternoon and it was HOT but monkeys were out. I would try for morning or early evening and we took a taxi and the driver knew exactly where to go.
