Monkey Island

monkeyisland

Location: Port Antonio, Jamaica

“The island gets its name from the colony of monkeys which Alfred Mitchell’s explorer son-in-law Hirman Bingham bought in to Jamaica. Rather than keeping the monkeys in his mansion (the now ruined folly mansion), Mitchell let them live on the island.”
