Cayo Santiago or Monkey Island Jul 22, 2008
If you happen to be visting the areas of Naguabo and Humaco you may wanna take a boat ride to Punta Santiago. Here you can find resorts and various resturants that serve seafood everything from huge crabs to shark. YOu can also take boat rides to the Cayo Santiago. This is where you will see about 900 Rhesus decendents. These were labritory monkeys that were brung in from India back in the 1930s. They are used for the Carribean Primate Research Center, Unv. Of Puerto Rico and Harvard University. If you want to get off the boat and see the monkies up close althought they are highly dangerous and mean you need aunthorzation. The best view of these monkeys come from the Naguabo side. From Naguabo you can see the island and the monkeys swinging around.
