They've got more than 30 species including gibbons, guenons and spider monkeys at this Cutler Bay alterna-zoo. Walk under the mesh-covered path and the monkeys will surround you on all sides. You can even feed them raisins and peanuts. They like fruit and nuts, just like people! Honestly, how often can you come this close to our primate ancestors? It's worth a visit if just to recall our humble beginnings.
