It was a time of some risk in Colombia but   my Colombian friend's careful planning enabled me to experienve small wild monkeys in that park as well as  involvement with other native animals including cuddling a three toed sloth, seeing a large caypybara up close as well as holdihg a macaw and seeing iguanas and chameleons. The experience is tinged with the lively festivities of the local people and  includes fireworks, rubber rafting, walkiing amongst butterflies and emersion in a waterfall filled pool - not to mention celebrating with a mariachi band and falling out of a seaside hammock. The story is enhanced by sound effects including local music, cries if domestic animals , the tolling of church bells and more.
