Explore the wide diversity of wildlife while on the Monkey River Tour in Southern Belize. Leave the resort for an hour drive on the Southern Highway to Placencia Village. From here, a short boat ride down the southern coast takes you through the Monkey River. View the beautiful flora and fauna of the broadleaf-subtropical forest from the river bank. View iguanas diving into the water, troops of Howler monkeys racing through the forest, birds darting from tree to tree, crocodiles sunning on the river banks and occasionally a manatee or two. You will also stop for a hike in the jungle, to view medicinal plants and other wildlife, including birds, insects, snakes and monkeys. After your adventure, you’ll return to the remote Creole village of Monkey River to share lunch and the friendly hospitality of the locals, home to about 200 residents- mostly fishermen. After lunch you will return to Placencia and then back to the resort.
