Drunk Monkeys of St. Kitts – My Rum Punch Monkey!

Stop me if you’ve heard this joke…two drunk monkeys walk into a bar on St. Kitts and say to the bartender…

The sentence above is more true than you know. Below is a hysterical or disturbing (haven’t figured out which) video of cocktail loving monkeys that my buddy over at BeachOutpost.com sent me . Turns out these cute monkeys are a lot more like humans than we knew. On the Caribbean island of St. Kitts, Vervet Monkeys have developed a taste for delicious boat drinks and can regularly be spotted stealing rum heavy cocktails from the limin’ humans on the beach. These clever, baby faced fuzz balls look to be stealing from the care-free beach goers at the famous Reggae Beach Bar located at Cockleshell Bay on St. Kitts. At least they have good taste in beach bars.

Turns out the monkeys have distinctive tastes and consumption rates that match the human population. Who knew!

Drinking Monkeys of St. Kitts

These guys give true meaning to the phrase “Monkeying Around”. I’m looking forward to sinking my toes into the sands at the Reggae Beach Bar soon. I will have an eye out for these thieving critters. They won’t get my boat drink without a fight. My rum punch Monkey!

Many of you have asked when I’m taking the Marriott Beach Blogger trip, it looks like I’ll be heading down June 29th to July 3rd. I will do my best to bring you guys with me through real-time photo updates on Facebook and Twitter as well as the daily blog stories.

Cheers Castaways,

    Too funny! Looks like some of these monkeys should be in rehab with Lindsey Lohan! I bet they’ve upset their fair share of tourists by stealing their drinks.

    I know I’d be upset! I’d be fighting those little suckers off with a stick for my run drink!

    Ryan, I’ll bet those monkeys will ransack your table, even if you try to guard your rum punch. You’re better off drinking it fast before the shenanigans escalates into some serious monkey business. When in St. Kitt’s, do as monkeys do.

    Yea! I thought I was drinking way to fast when we were in Nevis. Little did I know I had help 😉

    That’s hilarious Ryan- thanks!

    Evaporation? Big Gulps? Nope, monkeys drinking your cocktail when you’re not looking. Sneaky devils! Thanks for the comment Laura.

    Agreed Dread, would love to have me a drunk monkey as a pet. Wait, scratch that…I’m not going to share my rum.

    OK, I´ve been bitten by a monkey once so I really don´t like them but I have to admit that in this video they are even kind of cute.

    The monkeys are off the booze and high on life. You don’t see them at the bar anymore.
