Meet And Greet With Celebrity Guest ‘Dexter the Monkey’ at Fuego in Hotel Maya

March 10 @ 12:00 pm - 3:00 pm

Guests are invited to enjoy a springtime #MayaMania meet and greet with celebrity guest “Dexter the Monkey” in Fuego at Hotel Maya for families, friends and visitors on Sunday, March 10 from 12-3 p.m.

Mania is defined as an excessive enthusiasm or desire; an obsession – therefore, #MayaMania is that state of mind with all things Maya celebrated at Hotel Maya in 2024, especially Maya culture, history, traditions, music, education, entertainment, food, fun and more.

Monkeys were highly revered by the Mayans in various ways often showing up on pottery, murals and sculptures. They were instrumental in hunting for food. In religion, they were the patron god of the arts. Monkeys were portrayed as serious and industrious sometimes but other times they were silly and mischievous.

To honor the “Monkey,” Hotel Maya will host celebrity guest “Dexter the Monkey” a real, live animal experience in the sculpture garden adjacent to Fuego for educational purposes and complimentary photos. Guests and visitors are encouraged to enjoy brunch while visiting “Dexter the Monkey,” for reservations call 562-481-3910.

Dexter comes from a showbiz family and is no stranger to the camera appearing in the “Last Ship,” “Will & Grace,” “Unleashed,” and a Ziploc commercial, among others. Dexter’s siblings have appeared on “Friends,” “Outbreak,” and “Bruce Almighty,” and had the starring role as the local fan favorite baseball monkey, as well as other projects.
