The magic of Monkey Island

By Kylie MacKenzie

Up for a private wildlife adventure where resident monkeys welcome curious guests to their remote mangrove island? A nature-friendly paradise with six overwater bungalows and on-site gourmet fusion-style restaurant awaits. No one will find you here!

Given its location, Urraca Resort has a focus on sustainability. It shares the remote island in Bocas del Toro, Panama, with the Monkey Island Foundation, an organization dedicated to the ongoing preservation and rehabitation of local Capuchin monkeys.

Overnight accommodations include a special honeymoon hut and come with the opportunity for daily jungle tours, romantic ocean-side dinners and by-request tropical flower bouquets.

What to watch for: Ancestral spearfishing, sloth watching, chocolate making, and soon to launch “Monkey Island Therapy”—a project designed to create cyber friendships between local monkeys and sick children around the world.
