This protected area is located in the municipality of Santa Catalina de Alejandría in the Department of Bolívar, on the border with the Department of Atlántico.

The Ceibal-Titi Monkey has a total extension of 421.39 hectares (1,041.3 acres) and represents one of the most important relicts of dry forest in the Colombian Caribbean plain, where there is also a natural population of cotton-top tamarins (Saguinus oedipus), an endemic species of Colombia and in serious danger of extinction. In the protected area there are two more species of primates: Alouatta seniculus (red howler) and Cebus capuchinus (white-faced monkey) and other large mammal species such as American Mazama (Red brockets or deer), Bradypus variegatus (brown-throated sloth), Eira barbara (tayra) , Sciurus granatensis (red squirrel) and Dasyprocta fuliginosa (black agouiti), which give the area great importance in the faunal aspect. The RNP Ceibal-Mono Titi borders the Los Rosales RNP (Atlantic), constituting an important nucleus for the conservation of the dry forest in the Caribbean.
