In this episode of The Atlas Obscura Podcast, we visit the island of Cayo Santiago, or “Monkey Island,” off the coast of Puerto Rico. There, more than 1,500 imported monkeys have been studied for decades.
Our podcast is an audio guide to the world’s wondrous, awe-inspiring, strange places. In under 15 minutes, we’ll take you to an incredible site, and along the way you’ll meet some fascinating people and hear their stories. Join us daily, Monday through Thursday, to explore a new wonder with cofounder Dylan Thuras and a neighborhood of Atlas Obscura reporters.
