. You can hold a monkey in Costa Rica by visiting Manuel Antonio National Park or Tarcoles River, both of which are home to wild monkeys. Alternatively, you can visit the Jaguar Rescue Center in Puerto Viejo, which provides rescue and rehabilitation for injured or orphaned monkeys.
At the center, you can observe rescued monkeys up close and can sometimes interact with them. Additionally, some hotels in Costa Rica offer monkey-viewing and interaction activities.
